The Lemming save us from bad documentation and people who talk at the theatre [Aug. 8th, 2007|12:57 pm]

I've been set a programming exercise of creating a fully-featured class to communicate with LJ servers, using both the flat and XML-RPC APIs. Problem is that the LJ documentation appears to be woefully out of date. Would anyone happen to have an up-to-date copy of the flat and XML-RPC API docs, or failing that, a list of everything that's different in implementation from the docs, including missing functions? Any information on possible differences/traps between LJ's in-use code base and their open source code base would be useful, too.

Thanks! Digging through the source of your client has given me most of the information I need for the flat interface component, and most of it should be fairly easy to implement. It's a bit annoying about GJ not supporting the Location prop, and LJ not seeming to use its protocol versioning at all in the API, but I'll manage.

Now I just need to work out the XML-RPC. It seems to mostly match the flat API, but it's still going to be "fun".
