Magic Card Web Service API

A cool, new open source project designed to grab information about Magic: the Gathering cards has emerged. If you have a need to pull information about a certain card or set, the web service being developed is quite handy. It is still in the alpha/beta stage as of the writing of this post, but it already offers nice features.

Check it out at http://api.mtgdb.info/. There’s also a twitter account to follow (@mtgdb) if you interested in tracking the development a little more closely, or perhaps even contributing. The source is open: https://github.com/planeswalkers so feel free to peruse that at your leisure as well.

My personal stake is that I developed the initial Java API for the service (https://github.com/alotau/Java-API-to-mtgdb) that wraps up the web service calls into Java methods and handles the translation from JSON to POJOs. Woo hoo! Open source collaboration!
