Consolidating Multimedia API Descriptions And Releasing New OnesSeptember 4, 2008
We are consolidating all of our Multimedia and Marketing APIs for web developers over at api.forsalebylocals.com. We still have a lot of work to do there (especially on the home page) but you’ll have a lot more ability to find information about the developers APIs that you need if we have a consolidated location for them off our blog. The nice part is that we have a uniform URL for being able find the right API and we’ll be adding a lot of supplemental information that will help web developers get the most from the API set.
With that, on Thursday we’ll be making a number of new customer facing APIs available. These APIs will form the basis for being able to organize content into folders, know what folders exist, create new folders, and move the content to different locations. We are also planning to give developers the ability to programatically add Youtube, Real Estate Shows, and Vidlisting content to folders via APIs.
The API overview documentation is already live on some of these APIs:
Get list of existing folders: This api can be found at http://api.forsalebylocals.com/docs/getlistofallfolders (API Call live at noon on Thursday)
Move content to different folders: This api can be found at http://api.forsalebylocals.com/docs/movecontenttofolder (API Call live at noon on Thursday)
Lots more API capabilities are coming online over the next month. Stay tuned….
