Would it be possible to include a sporecast browser?

Thanks.

Not really...

I could provide a list of sporecasts for an individual profile. I envisioned it living on the profile viewer of qualityspore.com. It hasn't been a high priority for me sense searching for a sporecast by profile doesn't seem like a compelling experience. What do you think?

Hopefully Maxis will provide a better way to view sporecasts. I would prefer a sporecast API sorted by number of subscribers or rating. A sporecast search would also be helpful.

I'm currently using the buddies of my buddies to find out about good people to add to my buddy list.
It would be nice to see the sporecasts that a user has subscribed to, so I could find good sporecasts to subscribe to.

I have added search functionality to qualitySPORE.com.
- Symbols are not searchable at the moment (-,&,$,etc).
- I have also seen rare cases where search results are truncated early. I will fix this bug in the next update.
- I added a loading animation. The search API takes a lot longer to load. Please be patient!
- I have tweaked the look of the tabs.

Let me know what you think and if you find any bugs. Enjoy!

Great addition SniperMonkey!

Here's some thoughts about additions to the Sporecast service

So far this gives you the sporecasts subscribed to by a user:
http://www.spore.com/rest/sporecasts/MaxisMichael
OR
http://www.spore.com/rest/sporecasts/subscribed/MaxisDangerousYams/0/2

This gives you the sporecasts created by a user:
http://www.spore.com/rest/sporecasts/created/MaxisCactus/0/10

It would be really nice to add the following and they are on our list:
- who subscribed to a sporecast?
- add an asset to a sporecast (perhaps with the restriction that you have to have created that sporecast)

and here are the Assets for Sporecast
http://www.spore.com/rest/assets/sporecast/<Sporecast Id>/<StartIndex>/<Length>
http://www.spore.com/rest/assets/sporecast/500190457259/2/3

So I think you have everything you need to build a sporecast browser.

Oh wow, I didn't know the sporecast created API existed. (http://www.spore.com/rest/sporecasts/created/MaxisCactus/0/10) It's not on your API documentation page. Any other hidden APIs I should know about?

Sporecast support is in the works but it will take a bit. I am writing a new display method that will require a significant rewrite.

"Add an asset to a sporecast (perhaps with the restriction that you have to have created that sporecast)" If I am not mistaken, that statement suggests we will have the ability to confirm a user's credentials (a.k.a. sign in). That would open up a ton of compelling functionality.

Authentication is what makes exposing the "add to sporecast" and other write services challenging.

The "created" version of the sporecast service and the search service are not officially on the documentation page.
This is because we want you guys (our front runners who are active on this forum) to play around with them and give us feedback first.

There's one more secret service that's not been announced yet, mainly because it isn't performant.
But you can still try it out, at your own peril.

Who buddied you service!

Very nice!! The community will love this API!!

It would be nice to have the total number of subscribers listed at the top of this XML file. People like Fotosynthesis have 8000+ subscribers. Parsing through that much XML would be very time consuming.

Thanks DangerousYams!

Great thing... A number of suscribers, and list if request... Maybe sign-in from your outside API. Good news! Keep it up!

I love the parent creation tab.... It's a great way to check for authenticity of a creation.
