Create Custom-Formatted eBay Search Results with the REST API

Save your favorite searches in your web browser as bookmarks.

As with “Create a Split-Pane Search Tool” [Hack #105] and “Receive Search Results via RSS” [Hack #106] , this hack retrieves eBay search results in a way that can be customized for a very specific application.

Instead of using eBay’s XML or SOAP APIs, this script uses eBay’s little-known REST API. The REST API is simpler to use, but currently only supports a single function: GetSearchResults. Fortunately, this is exactly the one call you need.

The first step is to retrieve a special REST Auth & Auth token [Hack #103] . The only thing different you’ll have to do for this hack is to click the “Include the REST token” checkbox.
