Question thread #48

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

Has there ever been any further effort toward moving the API toward something that could be usable for someone to develop iOS/Android/WindowsPhone apps? I understand that this is the major hangup in that area, but also that a lot of folks could benefit from a mobile solution.

Hasn't really been progress. I think it's a fantastic idea though and people have talked about it, just needs someone to take up the torch and push it forward. I'm happy to mentor/review.

(And if nobody does do it, it's on my 2017 list. I really would love to see what people can do given a better API!)

Has a design for a new, better API been come up with yet? Or are there any notes anywhere on what people have in mind?

ETA: Ooh, I have been pointed at http://dw-dev.dreamwidth.org/154266.html and http://dw-dev.dreamwidth.org/155046.html .

So a new metaquestion: Is there are place where I should know to go looking for discussion and design documents on DW development projects?
