Is there an API for the new community?

Although or even cause it's brand new I'm curious if there is an API available for the new community? This would allow us to write nice little bots to integrate the community into other platforms

    The new SAP Community has been build from the ground up with an API first approach. All applications and microservices expose REST APIs which are used for the technical integration on platform level.

    That being said, the APIs are not ready for public consumption (yet). There is still quite some effort necessary to unify authentication (via oauth), URL pattern and parameters, etc. Although the long term plan is to make the API available to the community, we first need to get the basic user experience right.

    We will definitely put some effort into API harmonisation in 2017, but probably won't be ready to release the APIs next year already (gut feeling).
