API Reference Utility 1.00

Post by Kent Briggs »

I have a released a new utility program for programmers:

http://www.briggsoft.com/docs/pmavens/U ... htm#apiref

This program is a handy reference utility for programmers that make use of the Poker Mavens API. Not only does it display all available API commands and calling parameters (including obsoleted ones going back to version 2.10), it can make a live connection to your poker server so that you can submit individual commands and get a live result back in either JSON or legacy format. You can then study that output to determine how you will handle it in your own code. Non-programmers can also use this utility just to get an idea of how the API works and what its capabilities are.

Or typing in long URLs in the browser for "GET" testing. Even I finally got tired of doing that, especially since that required hand encoding reserved characters like "#", which are in all my table names. This utility does that for you automatically.

Just because I'm lazy, could you add in a copyable field of the URL of the API request?
This makes it really easy to build a URL but I still have to retype it if I want to use it elsewhere.
Being able to copy it directly would help immensely.

It's making the calls internally via POST parameters. But I'll consider adding a function that builds a GET URL for export purposes.

Can you get a screenshot of that and send it to me? It's obviously a false positive. The current file is APIRef112.zip. Inside that is APIRef.exe and has my digital signature on it (which you can test with Windows Explorer).

I submitted a false positive report to malwarebytes:

I noticed I had an account there so this apparently isn't the first time this has happened.

Wow, they responded already and claimed it is fixed. Can you verify that?
