API Developments to Twapper Keeper


As mentioned previously JISC is funding developments to the Twapper Keeper service to reflect the interests of the JISC community – the higher and further education community in the UK. Since such developments are likely to be beneficial to all Twapper Keeper users suggestions for developments are invited from everyone.

Comments to this post should address developments to the Twapper Keeper Web site with suggestions and enhancements invited on the APIs used in conjunction with the Twapper Keeper service.

Note that a previous post invited comments on developments to Twapper Keeper’s user interface.

  1. Andy Powell Says:

    I’d like to see notebooks (of all types) available as both RSS and Atom (and possible JSON), using the same format/conventions as used by the Twitter search API, i.e. as per http://apiwiki.twitter.com/Twitter-Search-API-Method:+search . This would allow developers to use pretty much exactly the same code to interface to both Twitter and TwapperKeeper. Following the Twitter API pagination conventions would also be good – note however that Twitter’s current limit of 1500 tweets is way too low for TwapperKeeper – it should be possible to get all the tweets in a notebook via the API.

    I’d also like to see an RSS or Atom feed of newly created notebooks.

    I agree with Andy on mapping format/convention. A more advance search would be useful (thinking boolean operations).

    Having used the API I haven’t encountered any problems (apart from just missing tweets in the archive). Perhaps an algorithm to detect problems accessible from the API would be useful.
