commented on How can I find a list of a nation's membership types?
Hi Kev, how do I change this to a feature request? It’s really limiting for third party integrations to not be able to get a list of memberships, my only real option is to request everyone’s memberships and take the union.

commented on People Credentials
Arion does that let us identify a particular user? I think what’s being asked is: if I have a staffer in my Nation named Fred, can Fred come to my third party app and log in with his NationBuilder credentials?

Oauth would let me link my application to my nation, and if the user is an admin, make API calls. I suppose I could get people to try and authorize my app anyway and throw away the key after which would tell me they belong to my nation and have control panel access, but I don’t know how I’d ever identify them. And I don’t think I want them authorizing the application every time they want to log in.

commented on Theme API to Support Easy Theme Creation / Updates
We’ve found the theme editor to be unusable when there is more than one person as it’s too easy to overwrite someone else’s changes. A public API would at least let us have some command line tools to manage synchronization.

commented on Does Nationbuilder have a Rails 4 API gem in the works?
The API is pretty nice, so far I’ve been getting by with a concern I mix in to my models. e.g. to save a survey:
def save
    nationbuilder "post:survey_responses", { survey_response: {survey_id: id, person_id: person_id, question_responses: response_array} }

commented on Google Universal Analytics vs. Classic Analytics
We implemented Universal Analytics on our site, I wrote up how we did it while still keeping the NationBuilder integration with goals.

commented on Can't create a new contact; getting validation error
Reading my own post (after I posted it for all to see) I realized I was sending my internal ID for the person, not the nationbuilder ID. Changed it, and it works. Doh!
