Just posted the first few issues of the work that I can deem 'stuff that
we're doing as part of the Knight iniative'. They consist of API-related
tasks, some of which have had prior art but haven't been tested/completed
enough to ship. I'd like to get them done and shipped to make some
substantive improvement in the API.
The first three are:
* JSON formatting for API calls and GeoJSON for some of them. Basically
* Filtering the API endpoints, so that POI editors don't have to sift
through road data, and so on.
* A TagInfo-like API for 'commonly used tags'
( see on
There are a few more tasks to come - stuff like the possibility of an Oauth
2 client flow, a complete user API for stuff like user photos & stats. Some
of the tasks might not be necessary, some might be in need of technical
reframing (what should be done in cgimap instead?): if you've got
(constructive) input, please give it!
