Initial API created
After a couple of days of reading up on APIs, checking what was out there already and thinking about what would make it really useful I’ve just deployed the first version. It is read only, and only for people. But extending it should not be hard:
The next steps are to allow access to the organisations and positions through the API. And then editing, which will go hand in hand with making the front end easier to use (less switching pages, more in-place editing).
The gritty details of the API design decisions can be found at the top of https://github.com/mysociety/popit/blob/master/lib/apps/api.js
