Retrieve the markup for a post.

The _rev is returned for updating. To include the _rev info, the user's logged-in info must be submitted on the query string along with text=markup.

This will not include the _rev info.

To include _rev info:

curl http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/posts/profile/?text=markup\&amp;author=MrX\&amp;session_id=50ff8f05c0f5d95aabbe7c5d810340c1

Stream of Posts from a Search Request

String search

Currently, a GET request is used. I may change this to a POST request.

A string search is comprised of one or more words.

Search on "beer":

curl http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/searches/string/beer

Search on "craft beer":

curl http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/searches/string/craft%20beer

Elasticsearch notes: It seems that when entering a text string surrounded by double quotes, then an exact string match is conducted by Elasticsearch. When a plus sign separates words, then it seems that an 'OR' Boolean search is conducted.

Tag search

Search on the hashtag "toledo":

curl http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/searches/tag/toledo

Returned JSON for a hashtag search on "beer"

{
  "status":200,
  "description":"OK",
  "next_link_bool":0,
  "posts":[
    {
      "author":"MrX",

    }
  ]    
}

To-do : Maybe add the "TAGS" API command.
curl http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/tags/beer

To-do : Add advanced search options, such as Boolean searches by exploiting Elasticsearch's more sophisticated features.

String search on a hashtag

curl http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/searches/string/%23scarf

Login

Create and send the no-password login link

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" --data '{ "email" : "x@x.com", "url" : "http://veeryclientperl/nopwdlogin"}' http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/users/login

Returned JSON if successful:

{    
  "status":200,
  "session_id_rev":"1-073335f570d5cf202bac424e0b05cb9b",
  "system_message":"A new login link has been created and sent.",
  "user_message":"Creating New Login Link",
  "description":"OK"

}

The session_id_rev name=value is only included in the returned JSON when debug_mode equals 1 in the API's YAML config file.

Activating the no-password login link

This will create the user's login session.

curl http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/users/login/?rev=12345

Returned JSON:

{
  "author_name":"MrX",
  "session_id":"50ff8f05c0f5d95aabbe7c5d810323c8",
  "status":200,
  "description":"OK"
}

Get Author's Info

At the moment, the submitted author name is case-sensitive with regards to the lookup within CouchDB.

The function is useful to determine if the author is logged-in.

curl http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/users/MrX

Returned JSON:

{
  "is_logged_in":0,
  "status":200,
  "name":"MrX",
  "type":"author",
  "description":"OK"
}

If valid login, then additional info is returned:

curl http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/users/MrX/?author=MrX\&amp;session_id=50ff8f05c0f5d95aabbe7c5d810340c1

Returned JSON:

{
  "_id"  : "abbe7c5d810006f8",
  "_rev" : "12-90b9a5ae6c32d",
  "type" : "author",

  "is_logged_in":1,
  "email" : "mrx@mrx.xyz",
  "current_session_id" : "5aabbe7c5d8103411c"
}

Update Author's Info

At the moment, only the email address can be updated because little else is stored within the author's doc that can be modified.

curl -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" --data '{"author": "MrX", "session_id": "5aabbe7c5d810346cb", "id": "2384849494", "rev": "45454554", "new_email" : "new@new.com", "old_email" : "old@old.com"}' http://veeryapiperl.soupmode.com/api/users

  "description":"OK"
