Sam Rust explains benefits of API for DMPonline

DMPonline has a REST API to enable you to query some statistics about your organisation, download your guidance, check the templates in the tool, and even create plans for your users.  This blog post will detail some clients to use APIs in general, the data you can pull from our api, and run through a more detailed example.  We will also talk about some of the planned extensions to the API to enable you to run your own queries on your organisation's data.

Roadmap back to school edition

Summer activities and latest (major 2.0.0) release
The DMPRoadmap team is checking in with an overdue update after rotating holidays and work travels over the past few months. We also experienced some core team staff transitions and began juggling some parallel projects. As a result we haven’t been following a regular development schedule, but we have been busy tidying up the codebase and documentation. 
 
This post summarizes the contents of the major release and provides instructions for those with existing installations who will need to make some configuration changes in order to upgrade to the latest and greatest DMPRoadmap code. In addition to infrastructure improvements, we fixed some bugs and completed some feature enhancements. Read on for more details about all the great things packed into the latest release, as well as some general updates about our services and of course machine-actionable DMPs.
