thx. Kasper

This discussion is related to the API addon.

thx for the plugin - the description makes it sound great and potentially very useful.

I can't wait to try this out and dig into the code. (as soon as I get a block of time to give it the attention and justice it deserves) I am sure i will learn alot. :)

I'll be downloading it shortly :).

I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Slow and steady is the way to go. It helps keeping feature creep away, and maintain sanity. :)

  • Good work I hope to check it out. It is is good that you made it extensible.

    I agree with bd, keep it lean. then people can plug it.

    grep is your friend.

    kasper,

    my soapbox:

    I see you updated. It may only be a matter of time before people start complaining that you are updating and adding features too quickly :).

    For me, I like seeing updates for bug fixes and new features, rather than stagnant plugins.
    I figure it is the forum owner's responsibilityto decide to update or not from the free add-ons sections, and be glad that it is well-maintained, rather than whine about frequent updates.
    And they would be wise to use the most recent update of all plugins.

    so keep the updates coming.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • Thank you for the works you guys have done. I am new to vanilla, may I know how to get start to this application. I have installed and enabled it in my vanilla forum, but I do not know how to use it, how to get the data by access the restful API. Can you give me some tips? Thank you!

    @neugls:

    No worries, hope you'll find the app useful! It is however only intended for advanced use cases where language-agnostic integration is needed. Using it is as straight forward as can be: Send an HTTP request to an endpoint and you'll get a response. For documentation on the different API classes and their endpoints, generate and read through the docs using Sami.

  • Great idea - thanks for the hard work!

    I downloaded, but can't see how to start using it... is there a simple use case example ?

    Thanks for the compliments, glad you like the app!

    Using the API is about as simple as it gets as it's completely REST-based. You can read a bit about use cases and possible implementations here: https://github.com/kasperisager/vanilla-api/issues/2#issuecomment-18891734. To quote:

    [...] a common way to communicate with REST APIs is using jQuery and Ajax (http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajax/). Many also use PHP and cURL (http://php.net/manual/en/book.curl.php). The options are many! If you're in need of documentation on the endpoints, refer to the links in the settings page in your Garden dashboard.
