Telligent Community SDK

This question has suggested answer(s)

Guys,

I need to develop a desktop based application that will fetch and post messages to selected group on telligent communities hosted on my organization's  server. What is the best way to accomplish this? through REST API? Correct me if I am wrong, as I understand there are more than one way for my application to talk to telligent communities. Do I need a telligent evolution developer SDK?

Is there a sample application that demonstrate interaction with telligent community 'group'?

Looking forward to the reply.

Regards,

Usman

  • Hi,

    I would say REST is the way to go if it is an external application running outside of Telligent. There are 3 types of APIs in Telligent:

    Public API (only available inside the context of Telligent)

    Widget API (only available inside Telligent Widgets)

    REST API (rest based web services).

    I once build a desktop app using Adobe air to pull desktop notifications of activity and messages in groups but I am guessing you are talking more like a Console app in C# to do this?

    I'm not sure I understand your requirements fully but hopefully this helps.

    thanks

  • Hi Adam,

    Thank you for the reply.

    Yes, I intend to develop standard windows based application in .NET. From your reply, it seems REST is a right way to go. Is there an external sample application that demonstrate typical collaboration workflow like logging in, subscribing to a group, posting a message etc. using REST API?

    Thanks,
