Himalayas API

API (Application Programming Interface) is an interface that allows users and applications to access updates to websites in a standardized, computer-readable format.

You can find our public API with all of our jobs here:

What format is your API

Our API is in JSON sorted by most recent to least recent.

What options are supplied in your API?

We supply the following options in our API:

  • offset: the number of jobs to skip
  • limit: the number of jobs to retrieve (max 200)

For example, will skip the first 10 jobs, and provide a JSON list of the following 100 jobs.

What are the maximum number of records returned per request

To keep the response small, we return a maximum of 200 records per request. Use the 'offset' option to obtain records beyond the first 200 records.

Is there a maximum number of requests?

Due to server capacity constraints, we ratelimit the number of requests that can be made to our API within a certain time period. This ensures that our service remains available and responsive for all users. If you exceed the allowed number of requests, you may receive a 429 error message.

If you have a special reason to require a higher number of requests, or if you need help optimizing your API calls to reduce the number of requests required, please contact us. We'll do our best to accommodate your needs and help you get the most out of our API.

What is the difference between your API and your RSS feed?

Aside from the different formats, our API contains a list of all of our current jobs, whereas our RSS feed only shows the 100 most recent jobs.
