How do I get the json for the each raw from topics in the category?

For example https://meta.discourse.org/c/dev/7.json displays me a list of topics for dev categories

Can I similarly display the content (raw text) of each topic in this category ?

Thanks a lot. It helped a bit.

I don’t know if this is correct and optimal but I did something like that. https://meta.discourse.org/search.json?q=category%3Abug
How can i show all the content of the post and not the first ~300 characters?

https://meta.discourse.org/t/how-do-i-get-the-json-for-the-each-raw-from-topics-in-the-category/148340.json

But this is content from only one post and I am interested in a collection of posts

If you need multiple topics, with all posts, you need to do multiple calls.

There is also the posts.json endpoint, aka https://meta.discourse.org/posts.json?category=support.

This might help: GitHub - pfaffman/discourse-downloader: Download a Discourse topic for offline analysis (or it might not work at all–for example, it might not properly put the API key in the header rather than the URL)

Thanks a lot - you always get to the point!
Is it possible to display everything on one page ? / (currently only 45 topics are displayed)

You need to paginate.

For the second call add a parameter name before with the value of the last post ID you got in the previous call.

Example: https://meta.discourse.org/posts.json?category=support&before=735490
