Unofficial API

The Unofficial API (also known as the Private API, or, as implemented by Kineme, as the "Skanky SDK") utilizes Apple's internal, private classes and methods to create quartz composer patches.

Unlike the official API, which is supported by Apple, the Unofficial API is not publicly documented, is not supported, and is subject to arbitrary changes at any time. This keeps Unofficial API developers on their toes, but also offers greater flexibility from within Quartz Composer. An outline of differences between the two APIs is available at Creating Quartz Composer Patches.
