    Benny Powers: seems like the maintainers will appreciate a small PoC for an OpenAPI spec

    I am also curious about the bc I have never written/seen one

    it really gets flying when you codegen it
    but let's start with one or two hard coded properties

    be sure to post it somewhere afterwards
    btw do you prefer json or yaml ?
    Benny Powers
    @bennypowers:matrix.org
    [m]
    yaml for this use

    So I was working on this issue since it wasn't being worked on, internetarchive/openlibrary#5238, should I send a PR for review or wait for some more discussion?

    Trying to getting started with contributions to this, thanks for your time!

    hi @p0p:matrix.org some titles are encumbered by policies which limit their access to special audiences, such as those with print disabilities. This appears to be such an example
    p.s. thank you @bennypowers:matrix.org + @jimman2003:matrix.org :) efforts greatly appreciated. Getting a very small and scoped implementation that the community can play around with and evaluate on e.g. a Tuesday community call would be a great step. As is such, I wouldn't want anyone to sink too much time into something banking on it being permanent. Hopefully it can be! But for something like API contracts it's good to involve the community early and get feedback from those who will need to rely on these systems. ty!

    I'm lost. If I wanted to archive things of Dr. Joseph Mercola, who gave permission as "In this way I hope to continue my mission to help you take control of your health – but it's up to you to download, share and repost this content. I will not be enforcing my copyright on this information so that you may freely share it" how do I do that?

    Hi, can anyone shed some light on the Search inside individual book API? Specifically, the docs page talks about finding a work's hostname and item_id with "the archive.org locator service". Does anyone know what this refers to?

    dernin
    @dernin
    @adarsh1405 the read API returns a status field that should be what you need: https://openlibrary.org/dev/docs/api/read

    Hello everyone!

    Where can I find link to slack channel? Couple of my pull request got merged internetarchive/openlibrary#5682 internetarchive/openlibrary#5641 and I want to get further involved into the community and make contributions.

    Thank you

    Mek
    @mekarpeles
    @adarsh1405 you can use the openlibrary.org/search.json API with the availability GET param. See: https://openlibrary.org/dev/docs/api/search for an example

    found a project that uses the openlibrary api to provide a graphql api https://github.com/DiFronzo/OpenLibrary-GraphQL

    heya, I'm wondering if the summaries for public domain books listed on open library are also public domain?

    Hello everyone, I think this project is awesome and I'd love to contribute
    I've launched it in gitpod but don't know how I can actually access running services or actually get started
    I see the code loaded up in a cloud IDE of sorts, but don't see how I can run the services or access the web interface of this instance of openlibrary

    Was wondering if anyone active can shed some light on an error I'm getting. I'm using curl to call the API to search by ISBN.
    I have an input, the input is sanitized and then splice it into the URL.

    input code
    ISBN= trim(code, '.' 'a')
    lookup = "!curl --silent ":'https://openlibrary.org/api/books?bibkeys=ISBN':ISBN:'&format=json'

    What I expect is the full details of the book so I can parse through it for title, author, publisher etc.
    What I get back is --
    var _OLBookInfo = {"ISBN9781593080174": {"bibkey": "ISBN9781593080174", "info
    url": "https://openlibrary.org/books/OL8870132M/The_Art_of_War", "preview": "bor
    row", "preview_url": "https://archive.org/details/artofwar0000sunz_o9w6", "thumb
    nail_url": "https://covers.openlibrary.org/b/id/869609-S.jpg"}};

    Yet when I hardcode the ISBN into the API url it provides me all the data I was hoping for.

    Hello, I just forked the Open library and Infogami repos and some jobs are already failing

    Hi @icefyre127 + @klinh6 happy to help you get started if you have any questions or would like to brainstorm a good first set of issues or features to work on! Thank you!
