In response to Google's discontinuation of support for their SOAP Search API, we have created the EvilAPI. The EvilAPI supports most of the same SOAP calls that Google's SOAP Search API supports -- it just doesn't use their deprecated API to get the data. Instead, it uses page scraping. Evil? Maybe. But not nearly as evil as providing a powerful development tool to people who are loyal to Google and then discontinuing it without any warning or regard to their users.

- EvilAPI

As for the title of the post, that's both my thought on this and a quote from the many, many entertaining insights on Gooliath in Uncyclopedia.


I know EvilAPI has been out since late last year, I've held onto my original Google Search API keys for a years now, but still I just love it when developers don't take stuff lying down.
