• Do you develop themes? Great! Stand right here. Now listen.
We made a new Theme Management page. It looks nice and it’s been filled with useful numbers. Among them:
Your daily, monthly, and all-time install counts
A day-by-day graph of installs over the last 30 days
The 250 blogs which most recently installed your work
A chart of the relative performance of each of your themes (premium themes only)
Excited? Want to make a new theme just to watch it get managed? Go ahead and do so at tumblr.com/themes/new, which is another page we’ve gone and improved.

  • Hey there, cool theme developers!

    We added a simple file manager to tumblr.com/customize. It allows theme assets to be uploaded right from the Customize interface, so you’ll never have to visit the static file uploader again. You can also insert and automatically update the asset URLs in the source code for your theme. Yes!

  • Hello fearless Tumblr app developers!

    Today we’re pushing a few changes to our Application Developer and API License Agreement that we wanted to make you aware of. These changes likely won’t impact the majority of you.

    • We made a few cosmetic edits to soften and clarify language in the agreement.
    • We modified the terms to apply to those developers building applications using our data firehose. This is mainly a mechanical change to the document.
    • We added restrictions against modifying the order of content that we send you, and clarified that anything we insert (like sponsored content!) shouldn’t be removed.
    • We clarified our previous restriction on public re-display.
    • Location should reflect real, mappable geography.
    • We clarified our policy on collection of private information, emphasizing the need for user notice and consent when appropriate.

    As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please send an email to api@tumblr.com and check out our developer forum.

  • ATTN: fantastic theme developers!Tumblr users can now interact with posts straight from the blog index and permalink pages on your theme! This is super exciting news! Previously blog visitors could only like or reblog posts through the controls in the corner of post permalinks.

All you have to do is incorporate our new Like and Reblog buttons anywhere in your design — we’ll take care of the rest.
If you’ve been using other methods to add this functionality to your themes, you’ll need to update to the latest code. Visit our updated Theme Developers documentation for more information.

Last week, two of our engineers, Wolf and JC, got to stay up all night eating pizza with some really talented young hackers at two different hackathons — 2013 hackNY Student Hackathon at Columbia University and Photo Hack Day at Facebook HQ.

After a long day of hacking, pizza, sleep deprivation, more pizza, and some DIY tacos, participants demoed their hacks, including a few for the Tumblr API. We were absolutely blown away by the creativity and quality of the projects and look forward to seeing what you’ll build at the next hackathon!
