I'm interested in making a tool that explores the tags of a site for tags which should be merged or mention each other in tag wikis etc.

On the page of any given tag there is a column on the right of the page, Related Tags.

I would like to be able to access this through the API but I haven't been able to find an API which exposes it. Am I missing something or has it not been proposed?

Related tags were one of the "maybes" slated for API V2.0.

It got implemented today.

Note that our definition of related is pretty much "appears on the same questions as", there's no real secret sauce there.

  • No problem. As long as it returns the same as what's in the Related Tags section it should be great. Dec 30, 2011 at 20:00
