  • 40. Gadgets Not widgets, not sprockets, not gidgets, not wadgets 41
  • 41. Gadgets A gadget spec: • s an XML file. I •  efines metadata about an OpenSocial app. D • s highly cacheable and does not need a high performance server. I Gadgets use existing web standards •  ML to define metadata. X •  TML for markup. H •  avaScript for interactivity. J •  SS for presentation. C 42
  • 42. Gadgets A gadget server: •  akes the gadget spec as input. T •  erforms optimizations on the gadget spec. P •  utputs HTML, JavaScript, and CSS as one document. O 43
  • 43. Gadgets A container: •  isplays the social network’s user interface. D •  pens an IFrame to the rendered gadget. O Containers and gadget servers are both run by the social network, but do not need to be on the same machine, or even domain. 44
  • 44. Gadgets Example gadget XML spec: •  ses HTML to print “Hello World”. U •  olors the text red with CSS. C •  ynamically adjusts the height of the gadget with JavaScript. D <?xml version=quot;1.0quot; encoding=quot;UTF-8quot; ?><Module> <ModulePrefs title=quot;Hello World!quot;> <Require feature=quot;dynamic-heightquot; /> </ModulePrefs> <Content type=quot;htmlquot;> <! [CDATA[ <h1>Hello World</h1> <style type=quot;text/cssquot;> h1 { color: #dd0000; } </style> <script type=quot;text/javascriptquot;> gadgets.window.adjustHeight(); </script> ]]> </Content></Module> 45
  • 45. Gadgets Requesting the gadget XML spec: 1. The client requests an app to be rendered. 46
  • 46. Gadgets Requesting the gadget XML spec: 1. The client requests an app to be rendered. 2. The container fetches the gadget XML spec from its host. 47
  • 47. Gadgets Requesting the gadget XML spec: 1. The client requests an app to be rendered. 2. The container fetches the gadget XML spec from its host. 3. The container renders the gadget into HTML, which is displayed to the client. 48
  • 48. Gadgets Requesting the gadget XML spec: •  ecause the gadget spec is simple, it can be cached easily. B •  aching reduces the load on your server, great when you have millions of C users. 49
  • 49. Gadgets Requesting a cached gadget XML spec: 1.  he client requests an app to be rendered. The container already T has a copy of the spec stored in its cache. 50
  • 50. Gadgets Requesting a cached gadget XML spec: 1.  he client requests an app to be rendered. The container already T has a copy of the spec stored in its cache. 2.  he container renders the gadget into HTML, which is displayed T to the client. 51
  • 51. Gadgets What kind of rewriting is done by the gadget server? •  ewrite links to use content proxies. R •  ewrite relative links to full paths (some containers). R •  eturn only content for the current view. R 52
  • 52. Gadgets What are views? •  adgets can render in different locations on a container. G •  endering area changes from small to large. R •  ertain pages might be public, some are private. C •  ontainers may have different policies depending on the page, C especially when the gadget displays ads. •  iews provide a way for gadgets to provide different functionality depending V on where it is rendered. 53
  • 53. Gadgets iGoogle quot;homequot; view: •  n iGoogle, the quot;homequot; view is a small, O private page that does not allow ads. 54
  • 54. Gadgets iGoogle quot;canvasquot; view: •  arge private view, allows ads. L 55
  • 55. Gadgets Working with views in the gadget XML: •  Content> sections are repeated for each view. < •  dd a view=quot;view namequot; attribute to each section. A •  ontent sections may support multiple views, for example C view=quot;home,canvasquot; <?xml version=quot;1.0quot; encoding=quot;UTF-8quot; ?><Module> <ModulePrefs title=quot;Hello World!quot;> <Require feature=quot;dynamic-heightquot; /> </ModulePrefs> <Content type=quot;htmlquot; view=quot;homequot;> <! [CDATA[ ... ]]> </Content> <Content type=quot;htmlquot; view=quot;canvasquot;> <! [CDATA[ ... ]]> </Content></Module> 56
  • 56. Gadgets JavaScript utility functions for gadgets: •  adgets.io.makeRequest() g Make cross-domain AJAX calls to remote servers. •  adgets.json.parse() and gadgets.json.stringify() g Native JSON support. •  adgets.util.escapeString() g Make text safe for display via innerHTML. •  adgets.util.registerOnLoadHandler() g Execute code when the page is finished loading. 57
  • 57. Gadgets gadgets.io.makeRequest(): •  ake cross-domain AJAX calls to remote servers. M Remote content: •  ost interesting gadgets will need to M work with content stored on different servers. •  JAX cannot cross domains, so you A cannot request content from your own server. •  SONP is only really good for one-way J data transfer. •  adgets with millions of users can G overwhelm a remote site. 58
  • 58. Gadgets Requesting remote content: 1.  he rendered app calls gadgets.io.makeRequest() to fetch T remote content. This call is sent to the container. 59
  • 59. Gadgets Requesting remote content: 1.  he rendered app calls gadgets.io.makeRequest() to fetch T remote content. This call is sent to the container. 2.  he container requests content from the specified URL. T 60

  • 68. The OpenSocial JavaScript API Working with people: • opensocial.Person - JavaScript representation of a user. 69
  • 69. The OpenSocial JavaScript API Request one person: req.add(req.newFetchPersonRequest(idspec, opt_params), quot;keyquot;); • idspec can be either “VIEWER”, “OWNER” or an ID number. • opt_params contains extra request parameters, such as which profile fields to fetch. newFetchPersonRequest responses: var owner = data.get(quot;keyquot;).getData(); alert(owner.getDisplayName()); • Data contains a single opensocial.Person object. • Person objects can contain lots of information, such as addresses, companies, phone numbers, favorite movies, and thumbnail urls. 70
  • 70. The OpenSocial JavaScript API Methods available on an OpenSocial Person: • getDisplayName() Gets a text display name for this person; guaranteed to return a useful string. getField(key, opt_params) Gets data for this person that is associated with the specified key. getId() Gets an ID that can be permanently associated with this person. isOwner() Returns true if this person object represents the owner of the current page. isViewer() Returns true if this person object represents the currently logged in user. 71

  • 73. The OpenSocial JavaScript API Request many people: var idspec = opensocial.newIdSpec({ “userId” : “OWNER”, “groupId” : “FRIENDS” }); req.add(req.newFetchPeopleRequest(idspec, opt_params), quot;keyquot;); • idspec is an object that can represent groups of people. “userId” can be “VIEWER” or “OWNER” or an ID, and “groupId” can be “SELF”, “FRIENDS”, or the name of a group. • opt_params contains extra request parameters, such as which profile fields to fetch, and how to order or filter the returned people. newFetchPersonRequest responses: var owner_friends = data.get(quot;keyquot;).getData(); owner_friends.each(function (person) { alert(person.getDisplayName()); }); • Data contains a Collection of opensocial.Person objects. Iterate over these by using the each() method. 74
  • 74. The OpenSocial JavaScript API Working with data: • Persistent data gives apps key, value storage directly on the container. • String only, but conversion to JSON allows for storage of complex objects. • Storage per app per user - scales well with growth. • Ideal for settings, customizations. 75
  • 75. The OpenSocial JavaScript API Set persistent data: req.add(req.newUpdatePersonAppDataRequest(idspec, key, value)); • idspec can only be “VIEWER”. • key is the name under which this data will be stored. • value is a string representing the data to store. 76
  • 76. The OpenSocial JavaScript API Fetch persistent data: var idspec = opensocial.newIdSpec({ quot;userIdquot; : quot;OWNERquot;, quot;groupIdquot; : quot;SELFquot; }); req.add(req.newFetchPersonAppDataRequest(idspec, keys), quot;keyquot;); req.add(req.newFetchPersonRequest(quot;OWNERquot;), quot;ownerkeyquot;); • idspec is an object that can represent groups of people, the same as newFetchPeopleRequest. • keys is a list of persistent data keys to retrieve the data for. • The owner is requested because the data returned is indexed by user ID and we want the owner’s data. newFetchPersonAppDataRequest responses: var app_data = data.get(quot;keyquot;).getData(); var value = app_data[owner.getId()][key]; 77
  • 77. The OpenSocial JavaScript API Fetch persistent data: • Data is returned as an object indexed by ID number, then as an object indexed by key name, even if there is only data returned for one user! { quot;1234567890quot; : { quot;key1quot; : quot;value1quot; } } • One person, multiple keys: { quot;1234567890quot; : { quot;key1quot; : quot;value1quot;, quot;key2quot; : quot;value2quot; } } • Multiple people: { quot;1234567890quot; : { quot;key1quot; : quot;value1quot; }, quot;2345678901quot; : { quot;key1quot; : quot;value2quot; } } 78
  • 78. The OpenSocial JavaScript API Working with activities: • API to post information about what users are doing with your app. • Many containers have support for images and some HTML. • Channel to grow your application. orkut MySpace hi5 79
  • 79. The OpenSocial JavaScript API Post an activity: function postActivity(text) { var params = {}; params[opensocial.Activity.Field.TITLE] = text; var activity = opensocial.newActivity(params); opensocial.requestCreateActivity(activity, opensocial.CreateActivityPriority.HIGH, callback); }; • Assign the activity text to the TITLE field. • Call opensocial.newActivity() to create a new Activity instance. • Call opensocial.requestCreateActivity() to post the activity to the container. 80

  • 83. RESTful and RPC protocols REST: •  esources are URLs. R Example - People: • All people connected to the given user: /people/{guid}/@all • All friends of the given user: /people/{guid}/@friends • Profile of the given user: /people/{guid}/@self • Profile of the authenticated user: /people/@me/@self • Supported Person fields: /people/@supportedFields 84

  • 88. RESTful and RPC protocols REST has some disadvantages: •  atch support requires multiple HTTP requests, or a contrived URL B scheme. •  pecifying multiple users via querystring is difficult. Is S ?uid=1234,5678 the same resource as ?uid=5678,1234 ? 89
  • 89. RESTful and RPC protocols RPC: •  ne endpoint - parameters specify methods to call. O •  atch support. B •  pecify collections of users through passed arguments, not URLs. S Example - Fetch current user: • Request • Response POST /rpc HTTP/1.1Host: HTTP/1.x 207 Multi-StatusContent-Type: api.example.orgAuthorization: application/json{ quot;idquot; : quot;myselfquot; quot;resultquot; : <Auth token>Content-Type: { quot;idquot; : quot;example.org:34KJDCSKJN2HHF0DW20394quot;, application/json{ quot;methodquot; : quot;namequot; : { quot;unstructuredquot; : quot;Jane Doequot;}, quot;people.getquot;, quot;idquot; : quot;myselfquot; quot;genderquot; : quot;femalequot; }} quot;paramsquot; : { quot;useridquot; : quot;@mequot;, quot;groupidquot; : quot;@selfquot; }} 90
  • 90. RESTful and RPC protocols Authentication: •  oth protocols use OAuth to identify users and apps. B •  epending on what the application needs to do, it can use two-legged D or three-legged OAuth. Two-legged OAuth: •  he application authenticates directly with the container. T •  erform non-user specific operations: P • Update persistent data for app users. • Can request information for users who have shared their profile information with the app. Three-legged OAuth: •  he user tells the container to give profile access to the application. T •  erform user specific operations: P • Post activities. • Fetch friends of the current user. 91
  • 91. RESTful and RPC protocols Client libraries are being created for PHP, Java, and Python. •  elp you connect to OpenSocial containers, and work with social H data on your server. Sample: log into a container: 92
