Does the IDeditor have an api to upload GPX files?

I have a script that compares GPX tracks with existing OSM data. If the data doesn't exist in the OSM database, a small snipped of the GPX track is created. Is there a way to automatically upload that file to the IDeditor so I can edit it? Currently I use the drag and drop function but I'd like to speed up the process.

"edit" from the GPS trace list works. If I set my default editor to iD and do this:


I do see the specific trace (and waypoints) underneath it). Is this what you mean, or do you mean something else?

No I don't think this is what I mean. I am looking for an api to upload GPX tracks.

Different from http://www.openstreetmap.org/traces somehow? (i.e. upload to OSM, get the GPS trace number, then invoke iD with that trace number).

Yeah you can just drag and drop a GPX file into IDeditor without actually adding it to OSM
