Imgur's API exposes the entire Imgur infrastructure via a standardized programmatic interface. Using Imgur's API, you can do just about anything you can do on imgur.com, while using your programming language of choice. If you're familiar with the APIs of Twitter, Amazon's S3, del.icio.us, or a host of other web services, you'll feel right at home. The full documentation is available at: http://api.imgur.com
If you want to fetch comics and metadata automatically, you can use the JSON interface. The URLs look like this:http://xkcd.com/info.0.json (current comic) or:http://xkcd.com/614/info.0.json (comic #614) Those files contain, in a plaintext and easily-parsed format: comic titles, URLs, post dates, transcripts (when available), and other metadata.
