Work In Progress
- The underlying InstrumentKit module needs initial review, prior to loading it with an immense amount of data.
- The localization are only available in English at this time, but support for Spanish, German, and French will be the first follow-ups.
Visit instruments.fyi for API documentation.
Please note: This server behind this API has very low performance. It is deployed to Heroku using the cheapest pricing tier in order to provide dedicated uptime and SSL support. This API is NOT intended to be used at runtime for any reason. As such, it is heavily rate-limited.
Instead, fetch the information you need and store the response, then de-serialize the data for your own application. Or better yet: use the JSON to generate the client-side code you need!
If you're looking to provide corrections and/or localizations to any of the data fetched via this API, you can do so by opening an issue or pull request in InstrumentKit.
If you're looking to contribute code to this repository, feel free to open a pull request. The more contributors, the merrier!
If you encounter any problems using API, feel free to open an issue and I'll look into it.
Special thanks to AudioKit for all of their expertise and support.
