As part of our internal "Google+ Joomla" developer challenge to create Joomla Products using the new Google+ API in a full day coding session, we asked interested Devs to use the API & create new or improve our existing products. Here's what they came up with ..
Profile Imports for JomSocial
A while back we developed a Extension to allow users to Import their LinkedIn Profile to JomSocial (either as part of the Registration process or later via a button) . This hasnt been released yet.. But this was a nice starting point to extend the extension to support the Google+ API to allow you to import your Google+ profile into JomSocial.. Manoj took up this one & managed to get quite a bit of it done ! Read on for a walk through of how it works..
A. Decide which Social Network to import from
B. Authenticate using Google+
C. Allow Access , Fetch Data & Push into JomSocial & Redirect to your site
Google+ Activity Stream Display Module
This nifty module allows you to display your public Google+ Activity stream on your Joomla Website. Yogesh was the one to put this together ! This module can be either used by the admin to Show his activities on the site.. Or Every user can create his own instance & show it on hi or her profile..(CB/JomSocial)
What else will we have coming with Google+ Support ?
1. Broadcast Integration
2. Invitex Plugin ( when the compatible API becomes Available)
3. Find People with similar interests & much more !
