If you append the query string
?json=true to a URL on Blot, you can retrieve the view used to render its template.
Try looking at this page’s JSON. I’d suggest using a browser extension like JSONView to make more sense of it. This feature is useful for:
Adding ‘infinite scrolling’
Debugging template issues.
Exploring Blot’s features without reading the documentation.
Building a complicated front-end blog using something like React or Backbone which (unneccessarily) re-implements features that already come with your browser.
This is not quite an API. This is also experimental and it might change. When I’ve settled on something appropriate I’ll add it to the documentation.
