example of fetching data for a *public* repo

$ curl --user zalew:password https://api.bitbucket.org/1.0/repositories/zalew/django-inbox/
    "scm": "hg", 
    "has_wiki": true, 
    "last_updated": "2011-09-13 14:24:35", 
    "created_on": "2010-06-25 21:31:58", 
    "owner": "zalew", 
    "logo": null, 
    "email_mailinglist": "", 
    "is_mq": false, 
    "size": 21657, 
    "read_only": false, 
    "fork_of": null, 
    "mq_of": null, 
    "state": "available", 
    "utc_created_on": "2010-06-25 19:31:58+00:00", 
    "website": "",

    "is_fork": false, 
    "slug": "django-inbox", 
    "is_private": false, 
    "name": "django-inbox", 
    "language": "", 
    "utc_last_updated": "2011-09-13 12:24:35+00:00", 
    "email_writers": true, 
    "main_branch": "default", 
    "no_public_forks": false, 
    "resource_uri": "/api/1.0/repositories/zalew/django-inbox"
$ curl https://api.bitbucket.org/1.0/repositories/zalew/django-inbox/
    "website": "", 
    "scm": "hg", 
    "name": "django-inbox", 
    "followers_count": 1, 
    "owner": "zalew", 
    "logo": null, 
    "resource_uri": "/api/1.0/repositories/zalew/django-inbox", 
    "slug": "django-inbox", 
    "description": "Messages between Users."

is there a reason why created, last update, information if it's a fork, etc, are not shown? this data is public anyway.

    Hi Jakub,

    We have opened an bug for this. I am not sure when we will get to fixing it so for now you should hit the API as an auth'ed user if you can.

    Thanks for reporting,

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
