Wouldn't it be great to expose IP.Board data via REST API?

As developers we need REST API methods to send and receive IP.Board data is some format like JSON or XML.
As a matter of fact, at the time I'm writing this, it's hard to find popular web applications that have not yet decided to support these APIs and published their documentation/methods list!


Question - When IPS, Inc. intends to publish the REST API documentation and the full list of methods? Then the new opportunities would be wonderful! %7Boption%7D

Thanks.

We have the XML skin which you could use with REST to retrieve almost any data.
This topic, for example: http://community.invisionpower.com/xml.php?showtopic=308582

We also have an open XML-RPC API which you can use to develop your own APIs for retrieving or submitting data:

Is there something specific you're trying to do? I'm sure we could you point you in the right direction :)

Hi Mark, we would like to extend and integrate IP.Board with other popular web applications and vice versa. In this scenario the client is primarily the browser rather than a desktop application. An advantage of REST over XML-RPC is that each object has its own URL and can easily be cached, copied, and bookmarked. I think REST is the best with browser based clients.
What we would need is a nice list of methods (including GET/POST, etc.) along the lines of Twitter API Documentation. ;)

Consuming that would be crashtastic. You don't enclose your "text" element in CDATA blocks, resulting in XML elements being in the middle of the text.
