The long promised API

is in the works. The read part of it will be a fully fledged graph API that will enable developers to slice and dice all of the relations we can think of that exist between soup entities like users, posts, blogs etc.
The write part will probably be just some kind of http POST submission thing, enough to get started though.

In two weeks or so, we'd like to have some beta testers for the first version of the API, just to check if we are on the right track, get a feeling for the performance impact and, of course, to build up some initial developer relations.

We are a developer driven start-up and as soon as there is an API that allows us to give away access in an efficient and secure manner, we will let you know anyway. But it would be mighty interesting to include those of you who are really invested in their ideas in the process before the official release happens. We are talking not only Soup-only addons but also your own (probably already existing) webapp which you could feed content and users from soup. For bigger projects, we can even talk about financing your summer.

So, if you have ideas what you'd like to implement (or already implemented), please reply to this post or contact us at team AT soup DOT io. If you are in Vienna or could stay in Vienna for the summer, include that information too.

And before the holy war starts: there will certainly be no invisible or irresponsible invasion of your privacy like at facebook and friends.
