API: Users

The User object

A user has several properties. Each API can return a User model in its entirety or with just a subset. All the properties are listed here:

Property Type Description
user_id Numeric Unique user identifier
fullname String A user’s full name
site_url String Public URL of the user on Spreaker’s website
image_original_url String Original size image URL
image_url String 200x200px size image URL
username String User username
description String User biography
kind String It could be listener or producer
plan String It will be basic for a free account, or other values for a Pro account
followers_count Numeric The number of users following this user
followings_count Numeric The number of users that this user follows
contact_email String Contact email
website_url String Contact website
facebook_permalink String Facebook user page URL
twitter_username String Twitter username
is_following_you Boolean true if this user follows the requesting user, false otherwise
you_are_following Boolean true if the requesting user follows this user, false otherwise
verified Boolean true if this user has confirmed their email address or social connection, false otherwise
birthday String User birthday
gender String It could be male or female
timezone String The timezone that should be used to convert UTC timestamps, before it is displayed. The timezone value should be used as a fallback if the client application is unable to detect the local timezone, otherwise the local timestamp is always preferred on the client app (ie. browser).
detected_timezone String The timezone auto-detected via the IP
user_timezone String The timezone explicitly set by the user

Many of the resources on the user APIs are related to a single user. If a request URL includes USER-ID it could be the numeric user_id or username.

Retrieving a Single User

GET /v2/users/USER-ID

You can retrieve the public information of a user profile by sending a GET request to the URL above. This API will only return public user profile data, even if the request is authenticated with the requested USER-ID token. To retrieve the full user profile, including private data, you should use the API GET /v2/me.

Example

curl https://api.spreaker.com/v2/users/1

The response body is a JSON object containing all the public user profile fields.
