Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. Join them; it only takes a minute:

Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

This may be a bit of a stretch, but I was wondering if it could be possible for the API to return the diff between two revisions? Or the next best option, to have the API return the markdown value of each answer you request?

It actually is possible to get the markdown of an answer using the following URL:

http:// {site} /revisions/ {revision GUID} /view-source

Note: you may need to scrub some HTML out of the resulting page you get.

For some reason, I didn't think to go beyond the API. Thanks for connecting the dots for me. :) – Kevin Mar 18 '11 at 14:05
