    • Birds of a Feather: Working with the Lotus Connections API Sacha Chua ( [email_address] ) LivingAnAwesomeLife.com Opinions here are my own and not my employer’s. No warranty, express or implied.
    • Goal: Get you excited about what you can do with the Lotus Connections API!
      • You can do incredible things with the Lotus Connections API
        • I made a Community Toolkit that had a newsletter, metrics exporter, and data exporter. People found it really useful.
      • Good news! LC 3.0 documentation has more examples than the LC 2.5 InfoCenter (and it’s a wiki!). The examples will come in really handy when you build.
      • We’ll go on a quick tour of some things we’ve built informally, and then open it up to a discussion :
        • What are you working on?
        • What would you like to build?
        • What questions do you have?
        • What can help you build better?
        • What have you learned?
        • What can you share?
    • You can do pretty cool things with the Lotus Connections API!
    •  
    • Data available for Communities in Lotus Connections 2.5
      • Components: Blogs, Wikis, Files, Bookmarks, Feeds, Forums, Activities
      • Number of entries
      • Unique contributors
      • Average per community member
      • Average per contributor
      • Percentage of contribution (unique contributors / number of community members)
      • Views (blog – all time) / Downloads (files)
      • Comments (blogs) / Replies (forum)
      • Unique contributors in community

    • Tools

      • Member activity breakdown
      • ATOM feed exporter (title, body, author, e-mail, date, link)
      • Community management (creating, updating, renaming, copying)
      • Member management (adding or removing members)
      • Bookmark list export
      • Bulk Profiles tagger
      Ideas
    • Lessons learned working with Lotus Connections 2.5
      • You can do a whole lot with the Lotus Connections API!
      • The service document doesn’t list everything. If you need to work with anonymous APIs, you will need to customize some of the URLs.
      • Trust, but verify. Systems and documentation sometimes disagree.
      • Not everything is available through the API. For example, I haven’t figured out the API way to get the structure of a wiki. Maybe in 3.0?
      • Community news feeds don’t work for private communities.
      • New wiki entries require valid XHTML, with an enclosing element. If everything else gets created except for the wiki body, that’s why.
