The builds.sr.ht API allows you to insert jobs, monitor their progress, and access some information about the build system. Authentication to this API is brokered by meta.sr.ht. This API uses standard sr.ht error responses. All requests should be submitted via https://builds.sr.ht.

Notice: the builds.sr.ht API is due for an overhaul in the foreseeable future; be prepared for it to change. The changes will be announced in advance on the sr.ht-announce and sr.ht-discuss mailing lists.
