I'm about 2 weeks into my OPW internship, in which I'll be evaluating
MediaWiki API client libraries in five languages against a standard
I've written and then contributing in depth to one of them. By now
I have a handle on using the API and the available client libraries
and I've written the standard I'll be using to evaluate these
Off-wiki, I've started writing a series of posts on getting acquainted
with the API. A few days ago I spoke at WikiConference USA on the
basics of APIs and API usage--slides are up on Commons, linked to from
my conference run-down.
If you have any comments on the standard, please leave them on the
talk page or grab me in IRC (fhocutt).
