Submission Upload JSON API

From SoFurry
Jump to: navigation, search

NOTE: The API is currently being updated. This information is subject to change fundamentally shortly.

Prior to submitting content, users have to be authenticated either via http session or via the sofurry OTP authentication mechanism. Submissions are posted via HTTP POST to http://chat.sofurry.com/ajaxfetch.php with the following parameters (example):

accessLevel	0
content	test
contentLevel	0
contentPreview	test
contentType	journals
display	Y
enableComments	1
enableVotes	1
folder	none
group[100]	false
group[10]	false
group[117]	false
isHighlight	false
keywords	sofurry, tiger, wolf
name	This is the story title
order	none
timestamp	1271058686

This leads to the following POST request:

http://chat.sofurry.com/ajaxfetch.php?f=postPage
&accessLevel=0
&content=test
&contentLevel=0
&contentPreview=test
&contentType=journals
&display=Y
&enableComments=1
&enableVotes=1
&folder=none
&group%5B100%5D=false
&group%5B10%5D=false
&group%5B117%5D=false
&isHighlight=false
&keywords=sofurry
&name=test%20entry
&order=none
&timestamp=1271058686


The response is a JSON-encoded message that looks as follows:

{"id":138740,"success":true,"message":""}

ID is the resulting page id of the new submission. "message" contains an error message if success is not true.



When posting artwork, the submission is a two-step process. In the first step the image is uploaded, in the second step the other content is set.

file [binary data]
f	postBinary
id	[empty if new artwork, submission id if editing existing submission]
contentType	artwork
cb	496


The response will look as follows:

<script type="text/javascript">
window.parent.window.__UploadBinary_496({"id":138741,"filename":"\/art\/images\/toumal\/toumal_banner.jpg","thumbnail":"\/art\/thumbnails\/toumal\/toumal_banner.jpg","width":728,"height":90,"fileSize":35575,"success":true,"message":null,"origFilename":"banner.jpg","contentType":1,"name":"banner"});
</script>


The following post has to set the other parameters of this submission:

accessLevel	0
content	test
contentLevel	0
contentPreview	test
contentType	artwork
display	Y
enableComments	1
enableVotes	1
fileSize	35575
filename	/art/images/toumal/toumal_banner.jpg
folder	none
group[100]	false
group[10]	false
group[117]	false
height	90
id	138741
isHighlight	false
keywords	sofurry
name	banner
order	none
origFilename	banner.jpg
success	true
thumbnail	/art/thumbnails/toumal/toumal_banner.jpg?t=1271059035299
timestamp	1271059183
width	728

The response is the same as for uploading a text submission:

{"id":"138741","success":true,"message":""}
