Confirmed; see bottom section, below.
However, please refer to Provide a way to retrieve questions and answers that have been deleted -- which is "status-planned".
This is a feature, not a bug. And this kind of feature has been requested many times. So, shush please, don't ruin it for us. ;)
You can see this behavior (for now) with this ...
Not sure which posts you should setup with this script? I made a quick SEDE query to help you find common duplicate target posts for your tag of choice.
TopItems it the max items you want back. Probably good to leave this less than 50.
TargetTag is ...
Yes, that bug is annoying, especially since specifying a todate that's before the fromdate returns a valid result set, EG:
-- rather than an error.
Having the dates be equal is theoretically possible. Having negative time is impossible (in this context).
Confirmed the bug on a post that accrues comments much slower than a typical Stack Overflow question does.
Currently, the OP's filter returns "comment_count": 1 on that post. There are no comments.
I believe this is a side-effect/bug/quirk with how the API appears to be counting the comments. ¿Perhaps it is counting Ids in the comment table and not ...
There's no one way. Here's a recipe you can use:
Make a proper app post here on StackApps.
See How to list your application/library/wrapper/script here.
Look for posts on Meta Stack Overflow (MSO) and/or on Meta Stack Exchange (MSE) where your app might make part of a good answer.
If you find such posts, make proper answer(s) to them -- linking both to the ...
To get the questions in a tag you can simply use the /questions endpoint as that does accept a tagged query parameter, from that document page:
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 ...
The API endpoints can relatively simple be used from ...
Probably the most cost-effective way is to poll /questions every minute or two. (Results are cached so, polling more than once a minute probably won't do anything but chew up your quota.)
Related: Provide a streaming API instead of forcing API users to poll
You can get real-time notifications by hooking into one of the undocumented ...
You have posted the 4th answer that confirmed the app no longer worked. The first answer that came to the same conclusion was posted in 2014.
If you have nothing new to add to an Q/A, please refrain from bumping a Q/A with a new answer. It would have sufficed to upvote an existing answer that said the same.
I haven't checked with Animuson but I assume his ...
The various /questions routes do allow you to simultaneously retrieve answers, if you set the right filter.
A good starting filter for getting questions with answers is: !gB7hjL3lhJ*Cnfe63rh6pAm74J(5qrOZKbL
To Customize a Filter:
Go to the /questions documentation page.
Scroll to the Filter Edit Tool:
Click on the tool and this dropdown appears:
Yes, it is possible to create such a script and here it is:

If the code tags are <pre>s, then \n is fine. Pre means "preformatted;" it makes the browser ignore the usual rules and preserve whitespace, etc.
Repeat after me: "There is no such thing as a special character." Html is perfectly happy to receive UTF-8.
There really is no particularly satisfactory way to do this since all versions of last_activity_date conflate a question's activity with the activity of its answers.
You are going to have to fetch lots of items and filter out the chaff yourself. There are 2 main routes you can take, events or questions:
A) Use the /events route:
Use a filter that ...
Are they moved to filters?
Yes, you need to generate a filter that includes the question.body, question.comments, and question.answers fields. There are shorthand filters (i.e. _bca) that will do this for upgrade compatibility, but their use is discouraged and you're better off just making a filter that contains exactly what you want anyway.
Stack Exchange supports the width attribute; see "What HTML tags
are allowed on Stack Exchange sites?".
The answer to that question emphatically states:
You must enter the tags exactly as shown. Any deviation from this list—adding extra spaces, using single quote or no quotes, etc.—means the tag will be stripped.
The attribute order is important! ...
Currently the API does not let you get "featured" questions (questions that have bounties) using or logic with the tag parameters. That is, you cannot search for questions that:
Have a bounty AND (have Tag-A OR Tag-B)
It might make sense to add a hasbounty parameter to the /search/advanced path.
In the meantime, since the number of featured ...
The body_markdown field in the question (or answer) categories will give you the markdown.
So, !9YdnSJ*_T would be the filter to get a question with the markdown.
Demo: This question:
API URL: https://api.stackexchange.com/2.2/questions/18474564?order=desc&sort=activity&site=stackoverflow&filter=!9YdnSJ*_T returns:
This appears to be closely related to the bug: Why is comment_count=1 (incorrectly) when this particular filter is used?.
The workaround from there -- altering the filter by:
and selecting question.comments
appears to work in this case too.
(Although, in at least one instance, it seemed to need question_id as well. But this ...
You can filter (not sort) questions (and to some extent answers) by using the /search/advanced route of the API.
The q parameter allows most of the Advanced Search Options.
For example, this will fetch questions tagged python with at least 2 answers, and that have a score of 50 or more:
Just a simple recommendation (I do not particularly like the abbreviations):
could there be a table on hover, e.g:
* Like the Roomba Forecaster userscript.
The table can contain long details like "Answered the question", "Edited the question", etc.
You can get this data easily by scraping or by using the websocket interface that Stack Exchange helpfully leaves available.
If you are making an application or webpage, just fetch stackoverflow.com/10m via your app-language's standard fetch/scrape utilities. EG: cURL if you are using PHP, etc.
For client side applications, make a Greasemonkey/...
You can use the /search method with tagged and intitle
For example: http://api.stackexchange.com/2.2/search?order=desc&sort=activity&tagged=rest&intitle=api&site=stackoverflow will search for questions on Stack Overflow with api in the title and that are tagged with rest.
The first two items I get when running this are:
This sure looks like a bug.
Site search shows that there were 946 browserify questions created in 2015 (so far).
The /tags route doesn't have a created option, but it shows 0 questions were active in 2015!
No permutation yielded valid results when trying to specify any fromdate after 2012-05-23 (midnight on the 22nd). It seems the result is either the ...
Yes, you need to page through the results. See the doc page on paging.
So, you would probably want to set the max pagesize(100) and then make a sequence of calls. EG:
You would use either:
Set the tagged parameter to your tag.
Set the accepted parameter to True, if you want questions with accepted answers...
Set answers to 1, if you want questions that have any old answer at all.
Set pagesize to 10.
Set order to desc.
Set sort to creation.
For example, the following query ...
There is no app, exactly like that but two are pretty close (they don't have any annoying sounds).
These both run on Windows + Linux platforms and provide desktop alerts for favorited/tracked tags. Check out:
, built on the QT framework
, Uses the Chrome browser for its engine.
Whilst an API method would be so much more helpful, and easy to use, the mobile apps use the URL http://stackexchange.com/hot-questions-for-mobile. You can send a GET request to that URL and parse it easily because it's in JSON format.
It's an array of objects, eg:
Alternatively, you can parse the link property of the question response to ...
Make sure that you have coded all the bits that you can do first. This ensures that any request for help is genuine. If the project idea is any good, you should find that, although you can't get what you want, you can get what you need.
