JSON and Other Fun Stuff

March 8, 2007ByMark Slee

Tonight we added support for JSON as an alternative output format (just pass "format=json" to any of the methods). Hopefully this will make parsing things easier for some of you.


p> Along with this, we've made it possible to access Platform purely through Flash (via our new crossdomain.xml file) and/or Javascript (via the callback parameter). This means you can use Platform even if you don't have the ability to modify the code on your server - just use plain old html and some cleverly inserted &lt;embed&gt; or &lt;script&gt; tags.


p> Finally, we added some features you guys requested, including a bunch of new functions supported within FQL and the fields "is_app_user" in the user table and "size" in the album table.
