I might be losing my mind, but there is no API method that returns the "interesting" tab on the homescreen of a StackExchange site.
It's one of the most important calls in my opinion. I would like to do something like:
etc.. based on the favourite tags I gathered from the user.
There is a way to get questions based on a list of tags, but that method uses the
AND operator on the tags, but I would basically like the
OR operator on it.
To constrain questions returned to those with a set of tags, use the tagged parameter with a semi-colon delimited list of tags. This is an and contraint, passing tagged=c;java will return only those questions with both tags. As such, passing more than 5 tags will always return zero results.
