    JSON API

    Hey guys,

    I don't know if it exists already, I'm still an Umbraco newbi! Well, I think it would be cool if Umbraco has a little JSON server built in, and maybe a jQuery framework to talk to it. Reasoning being endless scrolling! And other cool features, a CMS I have seen strongly integrate this is http://www.firerift.com/. Although my only problem with that CMS is if the browser is incompatible no content is displayed. (Never a good thing) 

    So all of this functionality is out-of-the-box.

    Cheers / Ryan

    Hi Ryan,

    Its already possible to do this with Umbraco using the /Base - which is a REST interface for Umbraco.

    Have a read over Sebastiaan's blog post about using it with JSON: http://www.cultiv.nl/blog/2010/10/12/using-base-to-create-and-consume-a-json-string

    Cheers, Lee.

    What would you be expecting from a JSON API? 

    Would you expect REST end points which you can get/ post data to?

    Would you expect an OData end point which you can deep query into?

    As Lee has pointed out there is already the /Base API which allows you to create REST end points in Umbraco 4.x, but if there's something missing that you think should be in any future releases could you please elaborate.

    Hi slace,

    Sorry for the slow reply!

    Well as I keep mentioning, a CMS I like called Firerift uses this type of system for a simple brilliant templating architecture. I will not waist time re-typing the exact features out but you can see the main outline of the JSON features on this page.

    For a better understanding you can watch this screencast here.

    The only downside to that CMS is that its PHP and its made by a few people, so updates are pretty null and it has a very low user count.

    Hope this helps / Ryan

    I have developed a package which will enable you to call rest format URL then return published pages in JSON format. If that is you are looking for I can send it to you.
