Web Standards: World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Makes its Data Available Through Web API
In response to demand from developers in our community wanting to interact with W3C’s data, we have developed an API. Through it we are making available public data on Specifications, Groups, Organizations and Users.
We are providing a JSON format initially with alternate formats in the works and we will be expanding what information we expose over time. For more information please see the project page on Github.
The W3C API is documented at https://w3c.github.io/w3c-api/ and the details about the different endpoints are available at https://api.w3.org/doc
