The updated API is again available as Open Source software via PyPi, GitHub, and Zenodo. Installing the API on your computer requires data from the database (Postgres) and search index (Typesense), which both also use Open Source software but need authentication for access. The API is documented via the Swagger UI, and is well-suited to be used in Jupyter notebooks that take advantage of the metadata and content hosted on Rogue Scholar, as of today 9,512 science blog posts from 65 participating blogs.
One interesting idea is to write overlay blog posts, and Heinz Pampel did exactly that today when he published a blog post commemorating Open Access Week 2023 (which started Monday with the motto Community over Commercialization), referencing several blog posts archived in Rogue Scholar.
