Unity Asset Store API?

    I am quite new to programming, and one of the first website I would like to create is a search engine for sound effects.
    The idea is that the user enters a key word in the search bar like "guns" or "gun" sounds and my app would return the first 5 or 10 best gun sound packs from various platforms like Unity Asset Store, Unreal Market Place, and a bunch of other reliable platforms. There would also be additional search criteria like price and so on, and a nice user interface, but this is not related to my question here.

    I guess I can go about it in 2 different ways. Scraping or using API's provided by the platforms. I have looked but didn't find any for the Unity Asset Store, is there one?

    I am pretty new to all this, so please don't be mad at me if this question looks amateurish, or if it's completely inappropriate.

    ps. I am originally a composer and sound designer, and I sell my SFX packs in the asset store. No self promo, just saying that I am myself a contributor on this platform.
