Motivation The private API is a myth. Piazza has an internal, i.e., private, API. This gist is a proof of that concept. It is, of course, every self-respecting snooping user’s responsibility to publicize these. piazza-api (Click for GitHub) I wrote piazza-api a while ago when it was just essentially a more formal version of alexjlockwood’s gist. About a week ago I got an email from an Associate Professor from UMD asking about piazza-api (specifically, authenticating with “Share Your Class” demo users, and additionally if I had any further knowledge of Piazza’s API).
