API: Top 10 endpoint use and overview

Returns today’s Top 10 Posts or Videos.

This endpoint was designed to be a lightweight and fast way to access top content lists without exposing your API secret or actual metric values. It differs from the /analytics endpoint in the following ways:

  • Metrics omitted, no counts or values included in results.
  • Only 10 posts/videos maximum.
  • No pagination, all results limited to a single page.
  • Default sorting only. Posts sorted by views, videos sorted by starts.
  • Defaults to the previous 24hrs, can be extended to 31 days.

Opt-In Required

This endpoint is public facing and must be enabled by contacting support@parsely.com

secret parameter not required

This endpoint was designed to be used in-browser (called via JavaScript), so no API secret is necessary.
