By API, wowinsider is refering to an easier way to gather information from Blizzard's website. Currently, we can only ping their website about once a second without getting our IP's temp banned... if we were able to ping the system as fast as we wanted through an official API a lot of sites like http://www.wowjutsu.com and http://www.wow-achievements.com would have a much easier time gathering their data and would be able to provide richer experience for their users. I'm 100% for a Blizzard API, and as the owner of http://www.wow-achievements.com I realize that it would make it slightly easier for developers to copy what I worked hard to work around, but you know what? It would make my job easier and I could develop unique features with the time I'd save.I applaud this open source version of the armory and wish the developer luck.
