Hi Dan,

Most of CDash's information is available in JSON format. You can get this
by clicking the "View as JSON" link in the footer of the page. To manually
construct such a URL, you can prepend "/api/v1/" in front of the name of
the PHP script. So instead of "index.php?project=MyProject", you'd go to

For recent test results, I recommend the testOverview.php page. You can
access this page by selecting "Tests" in the "Dashboard" drop-down menu in
the upper right corner of the page.

For example, here's what it looks like for CMake's dashboard today:

And here is the corresponding JSON data that's used to render this page:

Please let us know if this doesn't do the trick for you.
