Following a community member suggestion obtaining a VEL website API, Phil Taylor from Blue Flame IT donated his API/JSON script for the community use.
It is available at http://vel.myjoomla.io/ however the docs have yet to be written.
This JSON is provided for free, dont abuse this by hammering it with massive of calls please. The official VEL list rarely changes. Be nice.",
"The data here has blanks, and is only as good as the data of the official vel.joomla.org statements, we rely on their data"
The VEL team on behalf of the community thanks Phil.
The code is released "as is" and the VEL team are unable to provide support nor warrenty its suitability for use..
