New version of API and new developer center

In: Announcements by: mathys

25 May 2010

Behind the scenes we’re working hard at a completely new version of Mobypicture. Not only the site gets a revamp, we also renew our API’s and developer center.

New API

Our current API is online since the beginning of Mobypicture and is missing some new features. API 2.0 makes a fresh start. Not only will it incorporate features like OAuth 2.0, OAuth Echo and a streaming API, the upload functions will be compatible with other Media Providers like twitpic and yfrog to make it even easier to develop applications for Mobypicture.

At this moment only the upload function of the 2.0 API is online. We wanted to release this feature as soon as possible with Twitter’s OAuthpocalypse in sight. At June 30 it will no longer be possible to use basic auth on the twitter API. We rebuild API 1.0’s postMedia to use the new OAuth Echo spec released by Raffi Krikorian and pre-released this the upload function on the API 2.0 to make the transisition as easy as possible. For more info on API 2.0, have a look at our API 2.0 documentation.

If you want us to Tweet about the posted media file, hold your breath. Together with Twitter we are working on a fix for that use case.

Current API

API 1.0 will stay online and will be kept up-to-date. The prefered way to talk to Mobypicture will shift to API 2.0 in the end, as it will incorporate Oauth 2.0 and a streaming API. Api 1.0 will not.

New developer center

Together with the first function of our new API, we launch a new documentation center for developers on http://developers.mobypicture.com. Better documentation and more updates from our technical team about developments and features. Check out our announcement about OAuth Echo and posting to Twitter for example.
