Plugins & libraries

All your Akismet development needs in one convenient spot

API Documentation

The Akismet API is open and alternative uses of it are encouraged. We have documented the methods it uses here, and we'll be expanding the API docs based on feedback from the community. The WordPress plugin is GPL and fine for use as a reference.


We love developers. Lurve! If you want to develop the Akismet plugin or on top of the Akismet API, the best first step is to join the Spam Stoppers mailing list where all the magic happens.

If you want to get in touch with the Akismet team in a more personal fashion, contact support.
