Software

Sufficiently developed users reverse engineer undocumented APIs for fun.

I have been sufficiently developed since I reverse engineered the Jango API over ten years ago. It be been a while nonetheless I peaceable take into accout the employ of Burp Suite to designate Referer. At the 2d I might possibly possibly appropriate employ Chrome Developer Instruments as a change.

This One year when some search outcomes disappeared from the respectable Jango search web page then I became faced with a option.

Chance 1: contact Jango people and quiz “Hiya where are the lacking search outcomes?”

Chance 2: problem your total JSON metadata from the Jango API and influence my accept as true with search web page that searches Jango the device I desire.

So I chose option 2 and went on a months long quest for Jango JSON metadata. Chance 1 would had been socially awkward and entirely unnecessary since I am completely capable of fixing concerns with out help from anybody.

End result! Warning: technical tools most sharp behold good to nerds.
