Rate Limits For API

Are there any rate limits for the API? Are there any other things to take into account or any tips for using the API?

Great question!

Right now there are no enforced rate-limits. It all depends on the power of your server. The best things to do right now when writing scripts to consume large amounts of data from the API is to use pagination with something like 100 data points per page.

Trial and error is also your friend here to understand whether your script will bring down your server. Extended periods of very high load will eventually make the service unavailable, but keeping thing reasonably spaced out then it should work as expected.

Eventually, with more people providing feedback on this we’ll be implementing some rate limits to protect your service from dropping when the API load is getting higher.
