Bridget

SMRC was an attempt to show that MOStlyREST could be easily mashed up with other web services and/or integrated into various web pages. Bridget, (Brilaps + Widget = Bridget), is a desktop widget built using the Yahoo! Widget engine. This is aimed at showing how one might extend MOStlyREST & MiaCMS into standalone desktop applications or widgets. The basic widget was coded in a just a few days with he goal of highlighting some of the MOStlyREST features like search, popular items, real-time who's online indicators, listing of sections and categories, etc. Below is a screenshot of the main widget page.

To run the widget you will need to have the widget engine installed. You can download it from Yahoo! here. It runs on Windows and Mac OS X. After installing the official engine you will need to download and install the Bridget widget. We are in the process of submitting Bridget to the official Yahoo! Widget Gallery, but in the mean time you can grab it here.

Once installed you will need to point it at a MOStlyREST enabled MiaCMS (or Mambo/Joomla) site before it will do anything. Go to the widget preferences screen and enter in the url of the REST enabled site and the API id you registered with (see the registration wiki page for more information on this process). For demo/testing purposes you can use ours if you'd like:
RESTful Site URL: http://mambo.mambojoomla.com
REST API Key: 6d3de928d82be8e391893aba0b07ed2324906f40

Last, but not least feel free to play around and customize the various preferences as show in the screenshot below.

MOStlyREST Examples


In order to build a REST client against MiaCMS you will need a valid REST API key. This key is unique to each product/site. Developers register for keys and site owners must approve them. More information of the registration process can be found here. Once a key is obtained the client development process can begin. To understand how to interact with the MOStlyREST API please see the following wiki page for parameters and sample responses.

We have put together several very quick and dirty examples of how one might use the MOStlyREST API to create unique and exciting external services and applications.

Sample Mambo REST Client (SMRC Download)

This client simply calls the MiaCMS website defined in the configuration file and retrieves the top 5 ranked articles. It then passes the content of these articles along to the Yahoo! Term Extractor web service which in turn then sends back what it feels are the key terms for each article. Once we have the key terms they are sent to the Flickr web service where a tag search is done for photos tagged with our key words. We look for photos which are licensed under Creative Commons. We display these related photos and key words below the original content and use a greybox effect to show full-size versions of the thumbnails (Note: Like we said quick and dirty.. meaning we are not verifying all the full-size image paths so some may not work, but most should. It's an example, not a production application).

Here is a working demo.
