Aether API for Bots

Other discussion fora, like Voat or Reddit, have benefited from bots. For example, Voat, which tries to avoid centralized big media, has a bot which appears when somebody posts a Youtube link and creates a link to view that content on a proxy, invidio.us, which doesn’t have the Youtube tracking.

An Application Programming Interface might make it easier to create tools which run on Aether. Is there anything like that?

Aether clients are local, the backend and frontend talk to each other via the API. Anyone can just run the backend (which is a separate binary) and use its API, so there is already one.
