Application Programming Interface in the pipeline

For the past few weeks we have been designing an Application programming interface (API) for Cloudworks, to enable anyone to build their own programs using the Cloudworks data. We have a draft API document (currently in PDF format) that explains the conventions, error handling and each individual call to the API. We would like your feedback on all details of the interface, and we'll work them in to the code as it evolves.

The API currently only supports calls to get data. We plan to expand the API in future, and to provide more response formats. And I'll blog soon about some of the decisions we made about the design.

Please send any feedback to cloudworks@open.ac.uk . And naturally we'll keep you posted as the API becomes available.

Best wishes

Nick
