Developers for JSON API: Read Me

If you're a developer, please send me a private message and let me know: (grabber @ schedulesdirect . org )

* The name that you'll be using to develop your grabber. If you'd like a dedicated account, please create one at the Schedules Direct website and let me know the name you're using. Developer accounts will have relaxed restrictions on the number of lineups they can have in their account, how many add/deletes can be performed, etc.
* The project that you're developing for.

The Wiki at ... I-20141201
has an explanation of how to use the API and what the responses look like.

There is an example grabber application at ... I-20141201
which implements a grabber for MythTV, but can also be used in stand-alone mode.

Please log bugs / feature requests at

If it's logged, it's easier to triage. If there's something in the XML service that's not in the JSON service that would make your life easier, please open a ticket.

You will still be bound by the Subscription Agreement linked on the home page of Schedules Direct. You are not permitted to use the JSON service with a commercial product or to redistribute the data; the JSON service is for personal use only and your grabber must be free.

Please use the Developers Corner forum to ask questions, or #schedulesdirect on freenode.

Should this be updated to point to the new API? ... I-20141201

Soon; I've got a few developers that are actively on 20141201 and we're just getting the last bits resolved. I believe that everything is ready.
