API to integrate PHPBB with an Web application

Post by shachin » Mon Jul 09, 2007 2:46 pm

Hello:

I am new to PHPBB. I had a need to integrate PHPBB with my web application written in C#. Hence, I added a web API to PHPBB. I took the existing PHPBB code as the base and then modified that. This API has a separate set of files and does not modify any of the existing files at all. So, in a sense, this is not a 'mods' as this does not change the core functionality / code of PHPBB.

I think the API could be useful to others in the community as well and would like to share this with them. So, what are my options:

1) As per the GNU license, simply post the source code on my public website
2) Submit the API as a 'mod'
3) Create a new project on sourceforge and publish API there

I would really appreciate your thoughts.

Regards,

A SF.net project would be a good way to go.

Thanks a lot for this library! I will test it out now. :)

I am going to use it in my forum converter... Universal Conveter is still difficult to me.


Thanks a lot for your work. ;)

Hello David, It will not work with the version 3, but we created an API for phpBB3 that works with any web application. If you have any questions please PM us.
