Dear Patreon Developer Community —
Over the past few months, we’ve heard creators and developers express that we haven’t been supporting our API as best we can. We want to be transparent and honest about our plans going forward. The news right now is that due to resource constraints, we can no longer actively maintain the Developer API with Patreon engineering resources. All endpoints will function as normal, however this means there won’t be new versions, ongoing maintenance, or updates. Any resources dedicated to the API will be for fixing critical issues affecting uptime.
This doesn’t mean the API won’t work and developers tap into unmaintained API’s quite frequently, but we want to make sure you make informed decisions based on our transparent plans for the future. The last thing we want is for folks expecting to get assistance from us and being disappointed.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be migrating our developer forum over to our main Patreon Community Forum. We’ll be able to keep the threads in developer forum and this is our official community forum with a lot more participation from both creators and the Patreon team. On the main forum, you’ll continue to have access to peer to peer support from other developers as well as resources available to help you run your membership. We’ll keep you updated on the timing and details of this migration.
We hope to be able to return to active support and continued updates to the API in the future, but for now it will remain intact but in a unmaintained state.
