The Etsy API and CraftCult App are Sweet!
August 1st, 2009 by estreet

I just used the Etsy API to run some product searches. It was very, very easy.

The Etsy Developers need to add a few more sort parameters to the keyword and tag search, like number bought and number of favorers (yes, that’s a word). But I like it. I really like it!

Here’s a nice looking Etsy application called Craft Cult.

Etsy offers a nice community feature that is missing on eBay. Etsy shows sellers who is has marked their shop as a favorite. CraftCult.com runs a cron to show the history of new favorers. Cool!

Etsy also shows the Etsy user names who “heart” an item for sale. Love it! I don’t know why eBay doesn’t utilize their watch list to build their community like Etsy.

My eBay app, WatchedItem, shows the number of watchers of an eBay item. Watchers are anonymous on eBay.

Watched Item shows the top 500 most popular items on eBay. It’s a good way to find the most attention grabbing items on eBay.
