In preparations for our upcoming launch of FlattrPlus, we are refactoring our internal system structure which in some cases means that we need to make rather large changes to how the system operates. In this particular case ‘things’ as a concept must go.
We will no longer allow the creation of things. In fact we will no longer store most of the data that is now presented as a thing. For most users, this mean nothing. The new system has already dropped all lists of things, the thing pages has been stripped down and you can’t edit the information for a thing. All this because we have understood that things would be dropped as a concept in the future, that is now.
But, if you are a developer building an application that either relies on the creating or fetching things endpoints in the current API you need to know what these endpoints will soon be deprecated. We have checked and already contacted all developers of registered apps that we see are are using these endpoints. But if you are building something that yet has not seen the light of day we can’t know that.
Since fetching or creating things are not necessary in order to Flattr a URL we would want to know more about how you are using the API and how we can help you transition to another solution. Please contact us and we will help you out.
