== Initial task ==

We need an API that will power the mobile app used to bookmark websites and group them into groups called 'clustirs'. You would start by creating a very simplified version of such API in your favorite PHP framework, that would support the following 4 methods over JSON:

Create a Clustir
This method will add/create a new clustir in the database when given the following:

• Clustir Name
• Clustir Description
• Owner Id
• Subdomain
• Icon
• Privacy (Public/Private)
• Topic Id (folder/location where clustir will reside)

• Clustir id
• Subdomain (returns the same subdomain entered if this subdomain is unique)
• Date Clustir was created

Add object to a clustir
When using this method, there are two scenarios:
- you're adding an object to an existing clustir
- the clustir doesn't exist yet, so you have to call the other method "Create a clustir" before adding an object
This means “Clustir id” (wherethat object will be "connected to") is required for an object to be created.

• Clustir id
• Object Title
• Object Type (website, app, post, photo, audio, video, post, book, Q&A)
• Object URL (for websites, and apps, posts, photos, audios and videos, books, Q&A found online)
• Object File (for posts, photos, audios, videos, and Q&A uploaded from the phone/browser).
• Object Description
• Optimized for Mobile (boolean value whether website is mobile-optimized)

• Object id
• Date Object was created

Search/List existing clustirs
This method will display a list of public clustirs and relevant information to each one.

• Search String
• Token (only authorized/logged in users can perform search)
• Scope (all clustirs, person's clustirs)
• Sorting (alphabetical by name, chronological by most recent date, numerical by most number of objects)

• Clustir Name
• Description
• Clustir's Subdomain
• Owner

Retrieve Objects from Clustir
This method lists all objects (and pertinent data for each) belonging to a clustir. Output is a multi-dimensional array/nested JSON:

• Clustir id
• Auth Token (if clustir is public, auth tokens can be from any registered user, otherwise, if it's private, only the owner's auth token is accepted)

• Object id
• Object Name
• Object Description
• Object Type
• Object Icon
• Number of Comments
• Number of Likes
• Popularity
