Presentation sites

  • Further development of a generic presentation site
  • We don't track our users with e.g. Piwik because of privacy reasons, annoying cookie disclaimer and the like but what about the presentations sites? -> will be decided individually on demand
  • How to proceed with CONNEC? -> should be concluded in May
  • Additional frontend developer? E.g. for Shahi new presentations site -> yes


  • #1675 API: 0.3 stable, 0.2 deprecated:
    • Renaming of endpoints for stable version 0.3 (/type_entities/ or /type_entities_all/ -> /entities_linked_to_type/ or /entities_linked_to_type_including_subtypes/)
    • Rename parameter and endpoints with camelCase - instead of _ (Source)? -> We decided to not use camel case or underlines but hyphens for word separation
    • If endpoint names changes, I will do a redirect for a short time (probably 1 or 2 releases)
