quandl badly formed URL

April 20, 2015

I’ve started working on some new code that pulls data from quandl, and I was getting this error…

 { "error":"Unknown api route."}

I was using the first example from quandl’s own API page

https://www.quandl.com/api/v1/WIKI/AAPL.csv

and googling didn’t turn up any answers. Fortunately the quandl folk responded on Twitter, and all’s well. The URL should be…

https://www.quandl.com/api/v1/datasets/WIKI/AAPL.csv

So I’m recording the issue here for any others that get stuck. Looks like “unknown api route”==”badly formed url”.
