HTTPS API

Grants API

  • Get a full list of grants at https://gitcoin.co/grants/grants.json
  • Get a list of contributors to each Gitcoin Grants Round at https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_addresses/roundX.json where X is the round number, (1-7 supported as of Oct 2020)
  • Get a list of contributors to a Gitcoin Grant at https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_addresses/grantX.json where X is the ID of the grant. You must be authenticated as a team member of the grant to access the data.
  • Get a list of contributors to a Gitcoin Grant at a specififc round https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_addresses/grantX_roundY.json where X is the ID of the grant and Y is the round number. You must be authenticated as a team member of the grant to access the data.
  • We've got an https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_addresses/all.json endpoint available for those who'd like to just get all addresses that've ever funded a Gitcoin Grant.
  • We've also put together a list of all grants on the platform, and the addresses you can contribute to them at, at https://gitcoin.co/grants/grants.json
  • Get a list of contributor social info (handle, picture, anonymized, comment) for a Gitcoin Grant at a specific round https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_info/grantX_roundY.json where X is the ID of the grant and Y is the round number. You must be authenticated as a team member of the grant to access the data.

These APIs are purposefully minimalistic, as we are trying very hard to limit the scope of the data retrieval methods in order to support narrow use cases. NOTE: These APIs returns live data, with a small cache infront. This means, the data may be up to an hour stale, but will refresh as the cache is recreated.

Click through to try them below: * https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_addresses/round7.json * https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_addresses/grant12.json * https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_addresses/grant12_round_7.json * https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_addresses/all.json * https://gitcoin.co/grants/grants.json * https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_info/grant12_round7.json

NOTE: Gitcoin respects user privacy, and gives users the option to opt out of including their addresses in these exports. Update your preferences at https://gitcoin.co/settings/privacy at anytime.

Authentication

These API calls require you to be authenticated as a team member of a grant: * https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_addresses/grant12.json * https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_addresses/grant12_round_7.json * https://gitcoin.co/grants/v1/api/export_info/grant12_round7.json

Authentication on Gitcoin is primary centric around our user model, which (for now) is dependant upon Github. If you are accessing the data programmatically, you may not be able to handle the Github authentication cycle, and for that reason we have begun providing limited access to this data via an API Key / Secret model. Here's how it works.

  1. Access any API which requires authorization via the standard authentication flow in browser.
  2. You will be issued credentials, which you can find in the response: body.meta.api_key.
  3. You may now access the API using the API credentials at URL?_key=YOUR_KEY&_secret=YOUR_SECRET.

Generalized API

Gitcoin provides a simple read-only HTTPS API to access data. The API is live at https://gitcoin.co/api/v0.1

URL Parameters

Filters

You can filter the data returned from the API by providing these keys as URL parameters experience_level, project_length, bounty_type, bounty_owner_address, is_open, github_url and pk. github_url can take a comma-separated list of GitHub urls. pk takes an ID and returns a single bounty.

Order By

By passing an order_by parameter you can order the data by the provided key. Ex: ?order_by=expires_date. To sort in the opposite direction you can add a - in from the the key ?order_by=-expires_date.

Example Request

~ % curl "https://gitcoin.co/api/v0.1/bounties/?&order_by=web3_created"

WEB3 API

Note: this API is now in the process of being deprecated, as since going cross-chain, Gitcoin no longer uses standardbounties as the base layer of it's bounties experience. This API will still be useful for legacy bounties which are posted to standcard bounties.

You may interact with the HTTPS API as follows

truffle(development)> BountyIndex.at('0x0ed0c2a859e9e576cdff840c51d29b6f8a405bdd').bountydetails.call('https://github.com/owocki/pytrader/pull/83');
[ { [String: '100000000000000000'] s: 1, e: 17, c: [ 1000 ] },

  { [String: '1537756425'] s: 1, e: 9, c: [ 1537756425 ] },
  '' ]

  • be sure to replace 0x0ed0c2a859e9e576cdff840c51d29b6f8a405bdd with the BountyIndex contract address.
  • be sure to replace https://github.com/owocki/pytrader/pull/83 with the issue that you care about.
