    I had to reverse engineer the Snapchat API for a project of mine and since no one is sharing it I decided to document it and give you guys an open access to it.

    I do not want to open source the code behind the authentication system so I'm hosting it on my server and that mean you will have to send your Snapchat username and password to my server, if this is an issue for you I do not care.

    The documentation is here -> https://doc.snapapi.tk
    I also setup a chat room for people who have questions, need help or want to talk about related projects -> https://chat.snapapi.tk

    The authentication API (on my server) is competently free to use and require no signup for non commercial use, but if people start abusing it I will setup restrictions.

    Currently I only mapped a few functions (login, get message, get stories and download stories) as they are the only one I use but when I have more time I'll add the remaining (upload, add friends, etc..)

    If you need help do not hesitate to join the chat room, but if you don't know what and API is or how to use please save us both some time and learn on your own or hire someone.

    Hopefully some of you will like it and make some money from Snapchat :)



    ps: I’m not responsible if Snapchat ban your account for unauthorized use of their API.

    This is amazing, incredible work on this and I appreciate you sharing it openly with the forum.

    Do you have any time estimate when you think the adding friends function will be implemented?

    Done, I added the documentation to add or remove a friend by username, I'll try to add the doc to upload a snap next.

    Hey OP, how long did it take you to reverse engineer it?

    2 good weeks of work, but luckily I was helped by someone who already done some previous versions of Snapchat because it was a plain to do it compare to "normal apps".
