    Hello PocketMine, please add XenAPI!

    Now why do I want this? Firstly, the resource manager here at PocketMine (the plugins page) is lacking usability. The main issue is finding resources when searching and imagine the HTML scraping you would have to do in a plugin to get anything useful out of it.

    My suggestion adds a REST API that has many possibilities, but the reason I want it is because it has a read API for XenForo Resource Manager. Why would you need this? It is MUCH easier to get a resource through a plugin, tool and so on. Imagine how much easier it would be to maintain a plugin update tool etc.

    I REST my case. :cool:

    I'll be honest, that is kind of messy. Does it allow categorization, limiting the amount of results shown, getting everything by a specific user etc?

    You would have to ask @shoghicp, I don't think so. But that API is much better than DOM scraping.

    Ignore this, the API does support it after all. It was just badly communicated.
