Post by Geolim4 » Mon Jan 14, 2013 11:02 pm

  • MOD Title: phpBB API

      • (Possibility to exclude API table from DB management fro security reasons evenr with left/right join)
    *Thus being a "read/write" access

    **Repeat after me:
    Geolim4 wrote:I'll be very carefully during key's creation with database access. I'm aware that keys should be created only for remote managing, by human or program (bot). I also know well that database's access with advanced permissions can endanger API table.
    API will be managed through unique key, thus allowing a better management:
    • you can put limitation to requests' count, on day, week or month basis
    • you can force key expiration
    • you can limit access to one IP address or set of IP addresses
    This MOD let your board being accessible for developpers, like executing C/C++ programs for authentication, or using cURL/f(sock)open, and more.

This could be very useful.

There's also been discussions of a phpBB API in Area51 for 3.1. Maybe you should see where the dev team is going with theirs ;)

Is very interest. So a pity, that only you one create this mod.

Thanks for the update! I truly look forward to this... It would be a great step forward for phpBB!

On a side note, if you didn't see it already, you might want to sneak a peak at this RFC on Area 51.

The API will use a lot of awesome library/framework: jquery(UI), lazyload, easytabs, pChart 2.x, maphighlight etc...
phpBB API will probably require php 5.3.x: Anonymous functions, OOP, etc...

The link I posted was just an RFC... I don't think any progress has been made on it. I posted the link so you can see some of the comments/tips from the devs ;)

Creating a good API is not a simple thing. Have you considered all security issues?
Why are you creating a MOD instead of making this for 3.1? I personally think it would be more useful.
I am glad someone finally started with this. As far as I remember there was some attempt to create API by some phpbb.com team member, but he created only a skeleton. Maybe you could inspire from it too.

I will finalize the 3.0.x project as of phpBB 3.0.x still popular for long time...
phpBB 3.1.x isn't planned yet for the simple reason than i don't know the framework for now ;)

Another awesome new screenshoot from the stat page:

I will publish a test key coming soon ;)
