CreeperPing, the WordPress Plugin rebooted

Dec 23 2014 Published by under MediaCreeper

Yeah, about that…
I’ve started to code on it again, after being busy with lots of other stuff in my life, like having a son, getting married .. that sort of stuff.

The core parts are pretty much done, working on some authentication parts now and adapting/adjusting the plugin with the rewamped API.

In short; media houses will not able to block traffic to MediaCreeper – as some actually are doing to avoid showing up on lists on MediaCreeper. A visit from a media house on a blog where the CreeperPing plugin is installed, will be transferred directly from the blog-hosting server to MediaCreeper, without passing the media house so there is nothing for them to block or filter.

A few selected friends will be beta-testing after the holidays, or whenever I had the time to complete the code and internal testing.

Request for suggestions

Jun 15 2011 Published by under MediaCreeper

It’s been a while since I had the time to really do something constructive with the code, the project has been put into a maintenance phase, not moving in any direction, as I’ve been caught up in work — quitting employment, beginning a new.

I’ll put this request for suggestions out; what would you like to seen added and/or changed on MediaCreeper? All suggestions will be taken under consideration, I’ll even blog about each suggestion and evaluate it, with argumentation for/against inclusion into the code base.

Issues that is already on the roadmap..

  • Optimize database-connections (in transitional work for moving off MySQL to a non-sql database in the future, probably MongoDb)
  • Make web site more dynamic, add ajax to update listings
  • Clean up code base to prepare for public release, as open source
  • Sync API-calls with WordPress plugin CreeperPing
  • Adding full support for IPv6 — currently spotty support

.. there is possibly more issues that I’ve forgotten about, adding them as they bubble up.

Maintenance update

Mar 13 2011 Published by under MediaCreeper

Just updated a lot of code and templates of the CreeperFramework, preparing for further updates. No new ranges in this update but I’ve got serveral up my sleeve.

Some optimization, prettification, validation of HTML, tweaks on SEO-stuff, javascript and will turn on compression in the next update.

I’ll put some effort into completing the WordPress plugin, CreeperPing .. as the project has gone stale. Need to put this one out the door.

Have given evercookie‘s a thought ..

API considered stable (enough)

Mar 07 2011 Published by under MediaCreeper

The MediaCreeper API (http://api.mediacreeper.com/) has been online for a couple of weeks now and are considered stable. It has been linked on the Swedish OpenData-site, a sort of repository of links to open APIs and data collections.

The MediaCreeper API is licensed under CreativeCommons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike or CC BY-NC-SA for short.

There are a non-public part of the API that isn’t completed yet, the CreeperPing. It’s a WordPress plugin that will interact with MediaCreeper over a Server-to-Server protocol, capable of circumventing blocking and blacklisting of CreeperFramework (MediaCreeper and variants).
