Programmatically manipulate categories and discussions
We're a game aggregator and we're starting to integrate Vanilla.
We haven't decided yet whether every game will have its own category, or a shared category for all games with each game having its own discussion topic.
Either way, when we add a game, we need to be able to programmatically create a category/discussion -- and if we're creating it as a category, we need to be able to make its parent the category "Our Games".
If a game is taken off-line, we need to be able to disable that category/discussion.
I saw that Vanilla offers data retrieval via REST GET:
However, this seems more like a job for REST POST.
How does one programmatically login (as an admin) and manipulate categories and discussions? Do I have to write that functionality myself?
