Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to add an "hot questions" section to StackPrinter that will list the hottest StackExchange questions provided here.
I'm going to fetch those questions using the site's RSS adding details with successive API calls.
Are there any chances that Stack Exchange hot questions will be provided by the API?

There are currently no plans for an API into the StackExchange.com site. Given how different it is from an SE-site it'd be a significant undertaking.

Perhaps in the future.

It might be of interest to point out that a great deal StackExchange.com is powered by the API.

Any plans on this one? Is this status-planned? –  systempuntoout May 1 '12 at 18:59

Is this what you mean?

http://api.stackoverflow.com/1.0/questions?sort=Hot

I don't see why you would need to pull RSS and API when you can get all information with params. e.g.

http://api.stackoverflow.com/1.0/questions?answers=true&body=true&comments=true&sort=Hot

thank you poet, i'm aware of hot sorting against single endpoint; Stack Exchange RSS feed give you something more, an aggregation of the hottest questions of the entire Stack Exchange network. –  systempuntoout Aug 29 '10 at 14:59
