Hi, is there any API for historical dates on web that returns data in xml or json format. For example, I need to get importants events in history on todays day and show that events in my app. Is there any good place to do it? And if you know for some other useful API, you can also write it. Thanks in advance

Wikipedia has a nice API that can return values in a variety of formats. You'll have to process the wikitext yourself, though.

You can view the API reference at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php , read more at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API , and play with it in your browser at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ApiSandbox .
