So the blow by blow commentary went out of the window about the time of the Lightning strike on the building… But we are back up and the Internet is going well and the code is going well so its time to introduce something that’s being demoed here at Hackday. I have been having fun playing around with the new API the documentation which is using the same style and layout of Flickr is sketchy but still allows plenty of experimentation some of the basic methods include:
Authentication is like most API’s token based, and certain methods can only be evoked based on permissions these include…
Obviously the various functions require some third party (i.e beyond your API code authentication) I’m sure some nefarious users will find a way round temporarily but the API is based on Flickr and I’m sure any holes will be plugged. Basic test console is provided allowing you to test methods and call backs, I will post my little test app in the next few hours, as I begin the graveyard shift.
