Diaspora API Dev Progress Report 11

It’s been a few days since I’ve been able to put some real time into Diaspora development but I’m back today.   Being back home from travel too means I can finally get past the blockers on the other branches.  I’ve actually gotten all of the branches I had been developing on to feature complete status, with full tests, and the test harness fully coded against it.  That means that through the API one can complete the entire Post, Comment, Like, etc. lifecycle for posts with all data types (regular, Photos, Polls, location, etc).  Conversations are also feature complete with full test harness as well.  Streams are also complete, however I haven’t tested with sufficient post volumes to test paging behavior.  Now it’s going to be the trick of getting past the tech debt of getting them merged together into the API branch.  Hopefully that’ll come in the next day or two.  I’m going to spend some time doing other Diaspora stuff besides that as I work through those pieces as well.  As always follow the progress on the API Progress Google Sheet.  After the merge I’ll be moving on to the Tags Endpoint, the first endpoint that is a full from scratch development for me.

In Summary:

  • Fully feature complete endpoints with full external test harness interaction completed are: Comments, Conversations, Likes, Posts, and Streams (except for paging behavior).
  • Ready for merging of the side branches into the main API branch
