Codechef API not working

Hi,

Codechef API is down. You can see here - https://www.codechef.com/api/rankings/OCT19A?sortBy=user_handle&order=asc&page=1&itemsPerPage=100

Please fix this since services like http://ccpredict.herokuapp.com/ are affected.

Hi,
I’d like to inform, there are two different things, CodeChef API & API being used by codechef.com. What you are referring to here is the latter. Also, both are healthy and working fine as of now.

With this, I’d also like to bring into notice that above API is only made for use by codechef.com and CodeChef is not responsible for its usage by any other third party.

I have been using the same api for past few months. It was working fine. But now for me it’s showing “Something went wrong”. I don’t know how both API are working fine for you. :confused:

Please consider this as an official reply. When I say it works, I mean it works for CodeChef. If you want to run your app, please make a request to api[at]codechef[dot]com as mentioned here, https://developers.codechef.com, to gain access to CodeChef API and then make requests.

Your app is using API which is meant to be used by the website only.
