Access Wordpress/Buddypress Externally

I a setting up a website using Buddypress which has some neat social features such as an activity stream which displays all actions on a website ("John has added a new page. Sam has edited his profile.") Etc.

I would like to be able to access this activity stream and display it on an external PHP website. I am looking for an external API which I can use to access and display this data.

Please let me know your thoughts/ideas/suggestions!

Many thanks!

    Hey targetdir,

    I don't believe though that Buddy currently has an API like this. I could be wrong, but not something I've needed and so I've not researched it.

    There is another more simpler way though, XML. What about just using the RSS?

    When in your activity stream you should see the RSS icon at the top.

    You could then.. if using WordPress use something like the Autoblog:

    To make WP posts.

    Or WordPress has an RSS widget which will read and display that feed on your site.

    If your not using WP on the other site, there are scripts available which are open source from around the net.

    What do you think? :slight_smile:
