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

  • You added the "data-dump" tag to your question: doesn't the fact that the tag exists sort of answer your question? Couldn't you have checked what other questions have the tag? – David Robinson Oct 21 '13 at 15:05
  • Thanks Oded, exactly this ! David, I of course looked around before asking. Seems that google or even related proposals from stack didn't match any of Oded's pertinent answers. – mazieres Oct 21 '13 at 15:09

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.
