Entity Expander

The expander feature is used to combine multiple requests. For example, a game provides a list of company IDs which in turn need to be requested to reach the company data. Using the expander parameter, the company ID will instead be an object containing that data.

Scroll API

In order to get more than 10,000 results and get blazing fast response times you need to use the new Scroll parameter.


Enable client-side requests through websites or Ionic apps by enabling CORS headers for your api key. Read more about it here.
