I was looking around the API and felt guilty in setting up a nasty code in order to build a datadump. Just to check before doing it, there is no Stack archives available ? something like githubarchive.org for github API ? Since my purpose is more an analysis of Stack than building an app, I need more all static data, than access to the freshest dynamic one. thanks, Antoine
The API is not the right tool for this.
We have had public data dumps going out for years.
At this time, we create a 7z file containing all the public data.
The latest official data dump on Archive.org is from September 2018.
