API in MajorBBS 10

Post by dwagar »

I seen something before about an API being added to MajorBBS 10, I have it installed but is it available yet or is it still being developed or hasn't been started yet?

I have been looking at these forums for a while but lost my account when the site switched over a long time ago and just created a new account.

Thank you.

The API is still in development. All the existing API functions from WG remain as they were and can be used.

How do you access the API in MajorBBS 10? I never used the API in the pass for MBBS/Worldgroup.

MBBS is written purely in C/C++ and there is no existing C# API.

Having said that, a proof of concept was created which uses PInvoke that was able to call API functions. I will see if I can locate it.

The API in MajorBBS 10 is still a programmatic API, not a RPC type API. We do want to figure out REST (bi-directional!) of course, but right now the focus is the core platform as-is.
