I m not sure how many of the writer here is developer, and how many of you are trying to play with the 200wad API? I have been talking about want to build something to extend the 200wad features through API, since the product is almost ready for the beta launch, I guess I can start talking about it.

What are the features I would like to extend? The priority is something that I need, a way to send out a webhook when I have a new post, with feature like this a lot of things can do.

I want it to have a webhook to IFTTT so that it can forward all my new post Dayone service. Dayone is original an iOS/Mac based diary client, later part it integrates with online service, but there are very little endpoints to access it, you can only import new post through IFTTT.

My idea is every time if the system check that I have a new post, it sends IFTTT a webhook, it triggers and keeps my latest post in my Dayone service. I had this idea when I was building WebhookHQ, I even think of integrating these features in but give up at the later stage. Instead of having too many elements in WebhookHQ, I thought why not I build something specifically for the community to use, and it can just focus on how to integrate with 200wad.

These are the reason why I start to develop 'Extend 200wad', even if no one using at least it helps me to keep a backup for my posts.

    @knight Good stuff! I sometimes think a simple RSS feed being added to 200wad might help with some integration with other services.
    If there were separate feeds for "all new posts" "my new posts" "my following" and "my bookmarked" they could be fed into other apps.

      @knight I'm monitoring the usage but I can't guarantee I will be able to support your bot forever, especially if it's not only for your personal use. It's a good alternative though, until I implement the features myself :)
