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.

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