COGS #2 by Z-GrimV
We are happy to announce the release of an improved API. After many years the api had become a little confusing and was not keeping up with changes to its backend systems. We therefore decided to redesign parts and fix some of the confusing naming and behaviour.

These changes are versioned so if you are using version prior to 20150416 there will be no change in behaviour, we plan to support the old api for around a year.

Summary of Changes

The folderid and stashid fields have been replaced by stackid and itemid respectively, this change applies to all endpoints.

These endpoints were removed and their functionality is provided by newer ones

  • /stash/folder
  • /stash/media
  • /stash/metadata
  • /stash/move/file
  • /stash/move/folder

New endpoints to manage stacks

  • POST /stash/move/{stackid} - moves stacks
  • POST /stash/position/{stackid} - change the position of a stack within a parent stack
  • POST /stash/update/{stackid} - update stack details (title, description)
  • GET /stash/{stackid} - fetch stack details, returns stash_metadata object
  • GET /stash/{stackid}/contents - list stack contents, supports pagination

New endpoints to manage items

  • GET /stash/item/{itemid} - fetch an item, returns stash_metadata object
  • POST /stash/delete - delete an item by itemid

Stash Metadata object

  • Renamed fields folderid and stashid
  • Removed is_folder
  • Replaced keywords with tags

Any problems can be reported on the GitHub Issue Tracker.

This latest update is crap.
You've completely destroyed any recognizable functionality.
I am unable to even look up ANYTHING I had dailies for.
All I get is stuff I DIDN'T ask for and if I do manage to find something I can't tell if the artist produced more since my last visit.
I'm not a prolific artist.
I do however love to comment and encourage artists.
You're drive to make DA streamlined while admirable is alienating.
I'm old and stuck to using a cell phone now.
Cutting me off from this is like kicking a cripples crutches out from under him.
I don't even know if I'm even in the right place to be complaining about this BS.
As far as I'm concerned you guys have failed and failed HARD.

Hello! I found a virus when I open a picture in Stash. Someone else with the same problem?

I'd like to pass on a short conversation I had, regarding the makeup of the HTML of this site (with the start of the note at the top):
electricjonny said the following:

Hi :)

I've been styling the message centre (to have the Original replies appear better) and it seems like Eclipse has a lot of random classes and other selectors. I've seen more and more sites do this, rather than use human-readable classes. Like instead of .header, I'll see .3dui-s2 or something.

Do you know why sites do this? I'm guessing that the site structure and style is being built by a program rather than by hand. But wow, it sure makes it harder to manipulate with Stylish/Greasemonkey or whatever! And there's also a lot more nested divs and other elements in the page. Basically just a lot more random selectors and DOM elements. I was just curious as to why that is, if you happen to know :)

This is what I have currently, by the way I want to tighten things up and see if I can better organize things, but as you know, this will be a big work in progress =P

rotane said the following:

Oh god, are they really doing that nonsense too? :facepalm:

As to why? Nobody knows, but there are a few possibilities that i can think of:

When using this obscure way of naming your classes, it's usually (i would think) to prevent someone from copying your code, or from preventing the user to modify it (this would make sense on, say, Facebook, where you want to make it as hard as possible to hide your sponsored content). Or, as you say, it's all machine-generated (would make sense when using Wix's tools).

I haven't looked at the code myself (obviously), but since there's a whole lot of nested divs and stuff, this would explain why the site is overall rather laggy compared to the current site. Which makes me so sad, because the current code looks very much hand-crafted, and as a result is properly optimized. So i'm guessing Eclipse won't be. :sigh:

Oh well, what's a bit more disappointment by this point?

electricjonny said the following:

Haha, funny you should mention Facebook and removing sponsored posts. I've been working on that over the last month or two, and they sure make it a pain to hide. Even other scripts/styles from other people don't reliably hide them. The HTML and structure of Facebook is miserable to work with, and Eclipse is similar.

I just saved my profile page using Eclipse, and the old version.

Old version, total file size: 7.05 MB
Eclipse version, total file size: 13.7 MB

So nearly twice as big, and I've taken a lot of widgets out of my Eclipse userpage. I'm not thrilled with these changes, but oh well — I've sort of stopped caring about this site. It feels as though the soul of this site is gone. They sold it to make it bigger and get more money, and that's the worst Eclipse change of all :/
