Joomla-REST-API-extension-com_api-version-2.2-released-3

Last week Techjoomla has released a new version of com_api (version 2.2) which introduces some fantastic improvements to the base API system. You can read more about these changes here.

What does this mean for AppCarvers Apps ?

AppCarvers maintains its own API packages which you can download from the website. We shall be upgrading the packages to support the latest com_api version and also releasing new versions of ‘The Blog App’ and the  JTicketing Event Manager’s App to support these changes in the coming week. EasySocial app 5.4 already supports the new API.

If you are using all 3 applications from a single site, do not upgrade your API’s or request custom builds till the Blog App and JTicketing app are released. We’ll keep you updated via our blogs and social channels on these releases.

Google Docs to Joomla Addon - Hackathon Updates !

Google Docs to Joomla Addon - Hackathon Updates !

The last Saturday was one like any other working Saturday at the Tekdi offices - filled with learning, fun and exciting hackathons. This week we collaborated with members from various teams like Techjoomla as well as the Enterprise Joomla development team to hack together a proof of concept Google Docs application that would allow publishing content easily from a Google Document to Joomla using REST APIs. 

Since the Appcarvers team already has 'The Blog App' and APIs ready on our github for both Joomla core and EasyBlog, this was a perfect task for us to pick up. While there is still a long way to go, we were successful in showcasing a basic addon that allows text publishing in a matter of 3-4 hours !
