Get list of categories via API or file to download


#1

Hey all, How can i get the list of all the product categories and subcategories. Is there any API that will be used to get that or any csv/excel file to download ??

You can use the browse tree report from the reports API.


#3

Any idea on how to get the list of variation themes for category via API ? I am able to download the categories in JSON by “Browse Tree Report (GET_XML_BROWSE_TREE_DATA)”

Nope. If I did I would have you other thread.

You can try writing a parser using the xsd’s. I started one but it got too complicated and I just resorted to doing it manually. I did manage to pull in all of the categories using the online xsd’s.

would you be able to share the mapping?

I don’t own the copyright for the code, so I don’t see how. I don’t think it is what you are really looking for anyway. We cherrypicked items to implement.

I would be interested in developing an open source parser for the amazon schemas if others would like to take on that project. I started work on this but got bogged down by the complexities of the schemas. I did successfully pull the schemas and generate a high level json object for each product type. This is written in TS and run in node.

To me the ideal library would allow pulling in the schemas in a usable format at will.
