As we continue to make com_api the platform of choice to add REST API support to Joomla, we added an interesting feature that makes it very easy to add Social Login to Mobile Apps based on Joomla.
JFBConnect from SourceCoast is one of the easiest to use social login tools. When a recent project called for a seamless social login across web and mobile we had to enhance com_api to natively allow JFBConnect as one of the ways to perform the login.

In the past few weeks we have made incremental upgrades to com_api, our REST API extension for Joomla. For those who are not aware, com_api is a quick and easy way to add REST APIs to Joomla. Extensible via plugins, you can easily add support for more Joomla extensions. This blog details the changes & improvements done from from 2.0 to 2.2.
The key change is support for SEF URLs, which will enable you to create better URLs for your API endpoints, like /api/articles/article/34. Till now, the API endpoints could only be accessed by Joomla non-sef URLs, making the URLs look clunky.
Few other changes include support for the Authorization header, and being able to override the response envelope for the resources. Also a few bug fixes around viewing logs and a performance improvement for sites that had a lot of API consumers.
We have revamped our documentation to make it easy for developers to write their own API plugins. You can find it here : http://techjoomla.github.io/com_api/
Version 2.0 and onward introduces a backward compatibility break in the default output structure of the response. AppCarvers customers please check the blog on appcarvers.com before you upgrade.
