I'm a little bit tight on time at the moment but might jump on during the summer, for now I'll hold a close eye though ;).

Hi all,

I've decided to go ahead and flesh out the actual API before I get to coding it. This will allow for a more clearly-constructed picture of the way things will work, and allow for discussion surrounding implementations before it's too late. I will commit these documents to the docs directory in the git repository as I write them; I welcome comments (and even contributions) along the way from any interested party.

I am planning on creating the system using a somewhat modular API. Adding a new "module" (as I call them, see this document for more information on that) should be as simple as dropping in a new file, ergo, adding support for a MOD through this should be straightforward.

What a nice surprise to come home from vacation and find this topic. :) I'm excited to see what this could mean for phpBB's future on the mobile platform.

I've now pushed some initial drafts of the board (forum listing) and private-message modules. Please look them over and let me know if I've missed anything. :)

Am I correct in saying this does not come with any modules by default?

You are correct as this is a MOD in Development which means that you will need to install it.

Ah, could you expand on that? The instructions were to just upload it within your phpBB directory (for development.)

The MOD is still in development which means there aren't any instructions yet.
