Yesterday I said the paging API was complete but needed to be reviewed. The more I talked over some elements with people and in exchanges on Diaspora I realized there were a couple of tweaks I needed to do. The first suggestion I implemented was to have paging on any endpoint that returns multiple elements. The second thing was to have a parameter for specifying the number of elements requested. I was pleased that supporting that feature was really just two lines of code to change. However while in there I decided to beef up some other defense programming techniques in some other places.
After that was done I moved on to implementing the ability to vote on polls. There was no home for it but since it is interacting with a post I put it on the Posts Interactions endpoint rather than create a dedicated endpoint with just one method. It aliases to a path in the same way as the rest of the interactions as well so I think it’s consistent. That also required a little moving things around from the existing endpoint into a service and then having both calling that. Since there were no tests around that capability I ended up writing those as well. With that done it’s time to move on to the documentation and then start hitting up the OpenID review.
- Incorporated suggestions in the paging in the API
- Completed the Poll Voting method
- Moving on to documentation updates
