Default [API] FFR API Beta

I've been working on a small side-project that might help some people who like making there own stats.

http://www.flashflashrevolution.com/api/

While currently it only supports retrieving a players levelranks and recent games, it can be expanded to provide more data to programmers.

Since it's currently in beta, it might have an odd error here and there, but for the most part, it should be fine. There is a credit system in place to prevent a ton of abuse, so it should allow 50 level rank loads an hour.

If you have any suggestions of how to improve this, please suggest.

---
Feb 6th, 2015:
Added: Recent Games, use "action=recent_games".

it's an interface for developers to programmatically leverage information from FFR's backend. pretty simple to understand if you are a developer.

it seems i can only access the first two levels for a user's level ranks ("Terror from Beyond" and "Get on the Move"). is there a reason for this?

Credits:
Time till the IP credits reset.

Levelranks:
Refers to the time when that score was recorded.

It's in Unix/Epoch Time.

Hi, I came across this page and wanted to thank you for doing this side project It seems like it could be really useful and fun for some players!

Edit (deleting original question):
I was confused about the user API key and IP credits. But it's making more sense after thinking about it. Yay!

Hi again (: I'm using the JSON values returned, I don't know if it's just me, but I'm getting that song names <2008> and <00.01> are coming back as integers while the others are strings. And in the case of <00.01>, the song name is actually (truncated?) to simply 0.

"info":{...
"name":2008
...}

"info":{...
"name":0
...}

I guess I just ran into this now and it crashed my program (typechecking threw an error), so I wanted to bring it up as an fyi to anyone else who might run into the same thing ^^ I'm not familiar with handling JSON or even xml data in general, though, so maybe it's just me?

But I added a check for integers, which works fine, and I just need to assume that when I see the song 0 it means 00.01. Sooo yep, just wanted to put this out there~

EDIT1:
Ohh okay I just checked the xml, it has ![CDATA[ 2008 ]] and ![CDATA[ 00.01 ]], which I think is expected... maybe I should switch ^^

EDIT2:
Lol not to make this point ad nauseam, either, but since I'm here anyways, here's a list c:

"136.6" --> 136
"20031023" --> 20031023
"300" --> 300
"3020" --> 3020

I'll have it fix in a few minutes (hopefully). I forget about the level names that are numbers.

What do you do with {"status":-1,"error_id":"invalid_key","error":"Invalid API Key"} after getting an API Key?

><;; Hiii... c:

Now I'm getting that some songs have "good" reported in "scores" while others don't, for both JSON and xml outputs.

For example:

"1602":{"info":{"level":1602,"genre":12,"name":"Pi ano Etude (Demon Fire) [Oni]","difficulty":86,"notes":2152,"length":"3:17"},"s cores":{"score":0,"perfect":0,"good":0,"average":0,"miss":0,"boo":0,"combo":0,"played ":0,"rank":162}}

vs.

"1596":{"info":{"level":1596,"genre":1,"name":"Ecl ipse","difficulty":43,"notes":441,"length":"0:46"} ,"scores":{"score":683550,"perfect":441,"average": 0,"miss":0,"boo":0,"combo":441,"played":13,"timest amp":1419032993,"rank":1}}

From looking at a few more (haven't checked them all), it seems like the majority of ones returning "good" are in Skill Token/Token/difficulty > 80, but not all Skill Token songs are returning "good." (St. Scarhand [Standard] doesn't have "good").

Just another small thing I'm running into, hmm~ thanks for any help/advice in advance! (:

I'm quite unsure of what is causing this to be honest, I'll have to investigate more, but I'm unsure currently.
