== 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
