Simon Fell > Its just code > (not)Echo API

Wednesday, July 2, 2003

There's a post on Sams blog about whether to use xml-rpc, soap and/or rest for the (not)echo weblogging API. And a raging discussion on the Wiki as well. Having implemented the Blogger API, Metaweblog API and RESTLog in the past, I'm all for a RESTful HTTP interface, no SOAP, no XML-RPC. No toolkit required. RESTLog (which follows that model) was by far the simplest of the 3 to develop / debug / get interop.
