API

There is a public API available away at http://api.briefly.co.nz/v1/articles.json. We'd love to see it used for something.

Roadmap

  • Create an 'Articles' resource
  • Extract the public and private controller logic into an Articles controller
  • Add in functionality for more admin user accounts
  • Smart scraper to create article drafts
  • Public API
  • Link-shortening and analytics via brfly.com
  • Twitter publishing
  • Facebook publishing
  • Caching layer
  • Drag and drop ordering of articles
  • Editor dashboard fed by scrapers
