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 find it very useful, if the API response for question (and answer etc.) contained a URL to the question page itself (preferably absolute).

E.g. the response for question 305 here would contain a field with the URL http://stackapps.com/questions/305/newest-unaswered-by-tags.

You can just put the question id on the end of http://stackapps.com/questions/ to get what you want. So

http://stackapps.com/questions/305/

is the same as

http://stackapps.com/questions/305/newest-unaswered-by-tags

If you really want the full URL you may want to give a use case.

Yeah, that's what I thought at first too, but the developer of StackOverflow.Net seems to disagree with that: stackoverflow.codeplex.com/WorkItem/… –  svick May 31 '10 at 14:39
    
The Property is now public, but it has the APi, maybe you can use the timeline URL. –  Jedi Master Spooky Jun 1 '10 at 12:18
