for our planned spin-off ExoMatter we will reguarly use Materials Project data, which has been extremely helpful. Of course we will properly cite and credit the data.
It would be a lot more efficient and decrease bandwidth use to download data on all materials in regular intervals and keep our own version of the database instead of using the API all the time.
Our suggestion would be to pull the database once a month. Is this okay to do and do you have any suggestions on how to best approach this?
