Mercury Retrograde API

This API serves JSON over HTTPs. It allows you to determine whether Mercury is in retrograde for a given date.

Why Should I Care?

Mercury Retrograde can really suck. I experience communication breakdowns frequently when Mercury is in retrograde. Maybe you do too. Click here to learn more about it.

How Do I Use It?

Basic Example

		> curl https://mercuryretrogradeapi.com
		{"is_retrograde":true}
	

Options

The only available option is a 'date' parameter in the GET request. Just about any parsable date format should work, but YYYY-MM-DD is a safe bet.

		> curl https://mercuryretrogradeapi.com?date=2016-09-14
		{"is_retrograde":true}

		> curl https://mercuryretrogradeapi.com?date=2016-10-01
		{"is_retrograde":false}
	

What Does This Cost?

It's free (really)! We use this API in production at Gingr. As long as that app is around, this will be too.

I have a question.
