No way to get period stats?


(Connor Sleight) #1

So I’ve developed a bot for a slack channel and I connected it to our discourse api mainly for posting posts. In our discourse we do a leaderboard type thing based on likes received per x amount of time.

Using NativeScript Community Forum and NativeScript Community Forum we can see the stats on the webpage, isnt there any api which can do this? I cant seem to see anything or have i just glanced over it every time?

I tried that but could never see the call, i think i have found it now though, thanks

however, reverse engineering the api yields no results, what i get back is empty

I have tried https://discourse.nativescript.org/directory_items?period=weekly&amp;order=likes_received as well as https://discourse.nativescript.org/directory_items?period=weekly&order=likes_received&api_key=<apiKey>&api_username=mast3rd3mon and https://discourse.nativescript.org/directory_items?period=weekly&order=likes_received&api_key=<apiKey> but all return no data

I can see the call in dev tools but the url it says is called is just the webpage, not the api for the data, can anyone please advise?

is there no way to get the period stats like the webpage can get? i cant seem to find anything that populates the data
