Hmmm, have a read of recent tweets for better API design ideas.

First thing for me: create a new host and at least give you some stubs to work against. That won't get done today. Perhaps over the weekend, if time permits.

In the meantime, show me what you want returned for a the simple search request. That way, I have something for the stub which meets your expectations.

I think we need a new host for this, specifically for just this type of operation. www.freshports.org is for users. I want to put other stuff elsewhere. But of course, the hard part is naming the host. We'll figure that out later. Do you want to do this via http? Like you said on twitter: /ports?name=git

I think I want to handle that via rewrite, and caching. Lots of caching.

Let's try to design the server with future uses in mind.

Perhaps /ports/summary/?name=git&descr

FreshPorts is my website. Julian and I are discussing this via Twitter.
