I forked a copy of the plugin here:
I have started adding features, including the ability to select posts by category stub names (instead of having to process everything on the client side -- useful for large sites).
Great to see this is being kept alive. We're trying to do a JSON widget for bbPress, do you have any idea how we might go about doing that?
It would be done by duplicating some of the
get_posts code to be specific to the bbPress schema. I'd have to study the module code a bit to figure out how it would be done, but I'd assume that it would be moderately straight-forward if you based it off of some of the existing bits.
So, are you planning to commit your patches back to the original WP API plugin at some point? You could probably try get in touch with myflashlab as well as the WPORG devs and get SVN access right?
That way we might get our additions for bbPress in there as well once they're ready.
I'm happy to see that the API is getting to work better :) as Erlend said, that would be good if I can add you, jbuchbinder, to the contributes so users who have installed the plugin will be able to access it easier.
I'm so naive with working with my WP profile! please tell me how I can add you?
Honestly, I'm not sure. I'm more familiar with development on github, which is why I chose to start developing a fork there, rather than messing with the WP subversion server.
(For example, the ability to review pull requests is fantastic for maintaining software, as well as the simple branching/tagging.)
I'd love to try to roll the bbPress changes in -- please submit a pull request for me on github when you get the chance.
There's a bunch of tutorials on WP development on GitHub:
I really think fitting the WP SVN into your workflow would be well worth it. It makes the plugin so much more discoverable; I would have never found out about your plugin if it wasn't for the WP API entry here in the first place, and on top if that I had to go check out its forum, which most people definitely do not do.
I'll be in touch about the bbPress changes. It might be about 2 weeks still until anything can happen on that front.
quick question - does this support custom post types / taxonomies?
My fork does expose a lot of that information. If it's stored in the proper table, it'll be exposed through the interface.
sorry, i just picked the wrong thread to post something. have a good day.
