Not sure what is the best way to suggest new data source, so I will just open an issue.

The roadmap wiki page has a point saying "What else" so I assume that suggesting more networks is welcomed.

Not sure how open the Foursquare API is but it should be similar to Twitter. I guess after Facebook and Twitter it is one of the most widely used networks.

bump for foursquare support, check-in visualization would be interesting.

I think just archiving check-in data would be a fabulous start.

This would be a great plugin! I actually have a PHP script doing this, but it uses the two feeds (RSS & KML) that every user has, and bakes them together with all the data. With the API, I guess it would also be possible to fetch comments and such on checkins, wich would be nice to have.

@AaronKalair is working on the Foursquare plugin in this branch. Hope to get it out in version 1.1.

Aaron Kalair Issue #718: Foursquare plugin
Pull request #1286 rebased on current state of master, 5/22/2012

TODO:
-----
Convert dashboard image charts to current style of JavaScript-based charts
Standardize terminology - UI uses both checkin and check-in right now
Improve/standardize look & feel of the checkins list (use relative dates, display user replies more like they're displayed for Twitter/Facebook/G+)
Add paging to checkin list
Proofread documentation
Question: how far back does the plugin capture checkins?

Possible bugs:
-------------
Looks like the plugin only gets comments on checking from me, but no comments from my friends

Aaron Kalair [DB MIGRATION REQ'D] Issue #718: Foursquare plugin
Pull request #1286 rebased on current state of master, 5/29/2012

TODO:
-----
* Page back through user's checkin history and archive old checkins; make sure each crawler run after that only requests recent checkins once archive is acquired
* Improve/standardize look & feel of the checkins list (use relative dates, display user replies more like they're displayed for Twitter/Facebook/G+)
* Add paging to checkin list
* Convert dashboard image charts to JavaScript-based charts
* Double-check test coverage (So far: missing DashboardController change test; TestOfFoursquarePlugin is kind of flimsy)
* Optimize new PostDAO functions by reducing SQL queries: combine 2 queries into 1 using a join to the links table.
* Verify test build passes
* Proofread docs
