On Monday, 13 August, we'll decommission the deprecated RIPEstat data calls.
At the beginning of this year, RIPEstat went through an architectural change: we separated serving the data and the visualisation for all the widgets we provide. The process resulted in two APIs: the data API and the widget API . This has a number of benefits:
- It's easier to develop new views and widgets because there's a clear interface between the two
- It makes it easier to access the data RIPEstat provides from scripts, without having to separate visualisation elements
- The downloadable data has a well-defined and documented format
- Using the widget API, it's possible to embed the widgets into other web pages
