Designer News API?

22 days ago from , Designer / Front End Developer

Hey DN,

I've been on the lookout to get access to the DN API for the past two weeks with no luck. I've tried to reach out to both DN and a moderator/admin here but no answers. So, i'm wondering if anyone here could point me in the right direction, give me a mail adress where I could get a reply or if it's even still useable for the public?

Thanks a bunch!

    If you're planning to build a different client, please let me know. I have several gripes I'd be happy to share :)

      Well, i’d be honored to build a new client — however that’s probably not what’s in my scope right now. My biggest gripe is that I can’t get a hold of anybody! But.. i’m a curious person, please share me some of your gripes. That’ll be insightful!

    Edit: I got word back from a guy at tinyboards. So, if anyone in the future is having the same problem and ends up here your best bet is to shoot a mail to

      Sorry, this is not what i'm asking for. This is the documentation, but I can't use it unless I get an access token / secret / id from anyone at DN as it's also written in the docs.

        It does clearly states in the second chapter:

        Please send an email to to request your API credentials, along with the email associated with your Designer News account, your intended usage, and an optional callback URI.

          Yes, that is correct. Maybe I was a bit unclear in my post. I said that i've already messaged them without any luck or response for more than a good while. And I fully understand that they get a lot of emails, but i'm more asking if there's an alternative way to get a hold of someone who could help me get access to it.
