Our technical call is on for the usual time (10:00am US Central) tomorrow (Friday, January 13th, 2022). This week we’ll discuss the steps needed to wrap up a 1.0 Preview release. I’ll also go over two important changes that I’ve now merged into the main branch: I’ve added the message code concept and list to… Continue reading Technical Call Agenda 2022-01-13
I’ve updated the documentation with several new developments that rose out of the API work for plan proposals and approvals. The main branch now contains a description of the methods available to initiate or modify a plan, as well as a description of the plan statuses available. I also updated the exchange negotiation description and… Continue reading Documentation Updates for Plan Proposal Worfklow
I’ve cleaned up and resolved the divergences between the branches in the GitHub repository. I also finished an initial first pass of the documentation, so now there’s no more need to rely on an old PDF. Thanks to Jim Young of ETE Reman for giving us some good fundamental advice on Git workflows. Going forward… Continue reading Merged Documentation and New Git Approach
Just a quick note to mention that the documentation is now available on the Sandpiper GitHub, in the unstable branch. This is where we’ll be coordinating the work to update and finalize this last critical piece of the puzzle, now that the API seems pretty well established (though as we bring testers online I’m sure… Continue reading Documentation Now Online on GitHub
We’ve been chugging along defining the API endpoints. The file linked below is last week’s efforts, though it rests in an incomplete state; we’ve come to the limits of comfortably defining things like JSON responses and HTTP methods within Excel. You can count on the endpoints, HTTP methods, and meanings themselves being well set at… Continue reading API Endpoints WIP 2021-07-15 & New Tech Teams Link
Last week I made several critical changes to the database schema based on work done building a template plan document generator in Python. This fixes bugs in some foreign key fields and adds linking directly to the plan_slices table. Full changelog and download below!
Luke and I have continued refining and updating the API in our working spreadsheet.
First of all, if you’re joining us from ACPN, hello! Welcome to our site. Now, the boring/fun stuff (depends on your perspective): I’ve bundled up the latest version of the XSD schema spec for Sandpiper, as well as the first release of our reference SQLite database schema. The database schema is provided as an SQL… Continue reading Sandpiper Schemas 20210518
We’ve finalized the first stable schema used for the plan document in Sandpiper. The plan document, in brief, describes the state of the actors in a Sandpiper agreement, and their relationship to one another. It encapsulates these in an implementation-neutral XML format that the two partners independently generate from their own internal ledger for that… Continue reading Sandpiper Plan Schema 0.9.4
We’ve updated the Sandpiper reference document to 0.9.0. This large update finally handles the plan document and adds sections that will be used to tie the API documentation in as we build it (our current effort).
