Why shoudn't we use the PumpIO API?

AA Alberto Aru Public Seen by 106

Diaspora* needs an API, it's a fact. Why don't use the PumpIO API as MediaGoblin is doing? I am not a developer, I have no idea about APIs and about Diaspora* code (I know D* is coded in Ruby, but nothing more).

I think it could be a good option, I mean, it's finished and it could be a good choice for pumpIO/GNU Social Connection.

Please, excuse my english.

The question is not what kind of api-endpoints we should be using. The question is who implements it.

Also there are existing discussions on API, please use the search. Opening new discussions just creates noise and won't make anything happen either.

@jonnehass I know, but they are nearly a year old.

But still active.

https://www.loomio.org/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&commit=&search_form[query]=API which one is active? lastest posts have months since they were wrotten. I don't consider them actives.

Whether or not you consider them active, they are active, even if there have been no contributions to them for a while.

Anyway, I didn't find the proposal of using the pumpIO API in anyone of these posts, maybe is not too bad idea posting that here. Now please, let's focus in the Pump API thing.

The pump.io API uses the oAuth 1 + automatic application registration model. Since oAuths trust model is designed around a central registry of applications, automatic registration pretty much defeats it.

Ok, do you think this feature is easy to change for a automatic registration?
