Happy New Year

and we are not being lazy this year either!

We are planning to release an event service, where you can subscribe to information you want to get pushed to your API / client / application.

The exact way of how it will be implemented is not finished yet, but we will cover it in more details on a later state 🙂

Now go celebrate with your friends and we’ll keep you updated.

Tobias


Merry Christmas!

This time of year is the perfect time to reflect and show appreciation.

Christmas is a time of giving, I want to give my gratitude to everyone, who has been reporting bugs over the last year.

I am truly grateful for all of my users that have and continue to use my API and keep me motivated to continue!

Sidenote; if you are looking for some easy hosting solution, get over to DigitalOcean, where I host my staff. Use my referral link to support me 🙂

Best regards,
Tobias

TibiaData cache intervals

I’ve received a lot of questions regarding realtime data and the cache we use on our side.. so I thought that I will give you some more details!

As from v2 of the API, we’ve implemented a cache, to minimize the resources that we use in for example CPU usage and to lower the amount of requests that poll our service on a seconds bases.
We at TibiaData understand that you want the latest latest data, but when receiving that amount of similar requests, we had to limit it somehow.

The cache we use is a memcached daemon, which stores data in the memory to serve the information faster to you.

Here is a list of the different API requests and the corresponding memcached timeouts.

  • Characters = 300 s
  • Guild/Guilds/Guildwars = 120 s
  • Highscore = 900 s
  • House/Houses = 300 s
  • News/Newslist = 900 s
  • World/Worlds = 60 s
