Thanks for this, I like it. The proposal's style is as clean and polished as other state of the art marketplaces; here are some screenshots: Apple Google Microsoft Mozilla On your proposal I would add: Authors: I like what Mozilla does, Author should be displayed. Votes: we don't have number of downloads or shiny stars. Votes number is our rating ...

Anything we should be showing and aren't? Attribution (i.e. keep the author name/link) My vote would be to drop the noisy reputation and last update time indeed, but keep the author name/link in the bottom right corner still, albeit with substantially reduced color/contrast (e.g. the last update color currently in use would probably do just fine): ...

Totally agree with this. (In fact, I would love to see the mobile site become a subdomain of StackOverflow.com!) There should be some sort of criterion for this, such as: The application should have at least x votes (maybe 10?) The application should have been in use for at least x days (maybe 14?) I like the idea of redirects - that way SO doesn't have ...

I would highly recommend using Stack.PHP, a library for the API that I wrote. Writing the code to access the API in PHP yourself will take a considerable amount of time once you add pagination, request throttling, etc. By using Stack.PHP, you needn't worry about any of that. Now on to your question: "...get all questions with a particular tag." This ...

It's a bit of a Catch-22. Work around it by making an app (or script) post for your app (or script), but put "(Placeholder)" in the title. Also, indicate in the post that the app is not yet ready for prime time. This has already been done a few times, for example: "Chatdump - a site monitor (placeholder)" "A small Stack Overflow browser for Android, for ...

I am the author of StackApplet and I can verify that the problem you are experiencing is due to a small bug that has since been fixed but hasn't made its way into the latest build for Windows. I will try to build the Windows installer again later and let you know when that is complete.

Now that we're actually into 2.0... Tag libraries that consume V2.0 with api-v2. It really is the only option that makes sense, metadata wouldn't be easily searchable and new questions aren't going to scream "V2.0 compatible" without a tag to that effect. I don't think there's any point in tagging older libraries with 1.0 or 1.1; the omition of V2.0 says ...

So, basically: Questions and Answers both use the same ID count. This means that the first question on a site would be ID 1. Then, the first answer is ID 2 and the second is ID 3. Then the next question on the site is ID 4. This keeps going. This means that if you take the most recent post (question or answer), the ID will be the number of answers and ...

The "Manage API Keys" link takes you to your list of registered API 1.x applications. Since the 1.x versions of the API are now deprecated, you won't be seeing anything new show up there. All new applications that you register for API 2.x will instead show on the "Manage your applications" page.

You're using my library, PHPStack. From what I can tell you're attempting to search via tags? It's a while back since I used it, but if I remember correctly this code should give you a basic example of how to use the search method: <?php require_once('lib/requestcore.class.php'); require_once('phpstack.class.php'); $so = new ...

There is no data dump of StackApps yet, it hasn't been around long enough. api.stackapps.com does exist, so you can query that but the throttle limits do apply - overly aggressive querying can get you banned.
