There have been a minor change to the whole TibiaData API regarding CORS (Cross-Origin Resource Sharing).
This means, that you now can run requests with for example ajax towards the API right from your website.
The allowed HTTP methods are GET and OPTIONS.
Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is a mechanism that uses additional HTTP headers to tell browsers to give a web application running at one origin, access to selected resources from a different origin. A web application executes a cross-origin HTTP request when it requests a resource that has a different origin (domain, protocol, or port) from its own.
Our hosting provider DigitalOceans networking team will make changes to their core networking equipment to improve performance at the datacenter, where our service is located.
There is a little impact by this maintenance, which may be a few minutes of increased latency as well as small amounts of packet loss while they shift traffic to redundant devices. They will endeavor to keep this to a minimum for the duration of the change.

We have slightly have changed plans from last year about new services and will focus at some other areas.
Our first goal for 2020 is to rewrite our API in another language (switching from php to golang).
Secondly we will go probably add some premium edition of out API, so that we can deliver a even better service in terms of faster processing of data and to be able to add more accurate data as it is today. We are not exactly there in how it will be, but stay tuned on that one!
And last but not least, we will look into doing it open-source soon, so that you then could contribute to our project or run the code on your own Kubernetes setup.
There will be some limitations when hosting it yourself, but more on that at another time.
I think we will leave it by this by now and go celebrate with your friends and we’ll keep you updated.
And if you got some questions as to the above or so, get in touch with me and I’m happy to answer it all!
This time of year is the perfect time to lay back a little.
Christmas is a time of giving, and even this year I want to give my gratitude to everyone, who has been reporting bugs over the last year.
I am grateful for all of my users that have and continue to use my API and keep me motivated to continue!
