Several months ago, the folks over at 37signals added multiple-lists-per-page support to Backpack, their simple personal organization tool, but didn't update the (otherwise quite excellent) Backpack API documentation, so I didn't update backpack.el.

Fortunately, a resourceful developer posted his own documentation for the new and updated API methods to the Backpack forum. I've updated backpack.el accordingly: backpack-api/page/items/list and backpack-api/page/items/add now each take an optional list-id argument. In addition, there are four new API methods: backpack-api/page/lists/add, backpack-api/page/lists/update, backpack-api/page/lists/list, and backpack-api/page/lists/destroy.

  1. Is there an error in backpack-api/page/lists/list? NAME is not defined but is used in the body. Or am I calling the wrong function?

    I’ve been using this a bit, thanks for putting it together! I’ve just started with some simple interactive stuff with completion using the api, will post as it goes along.

  2. Hmm. It looks right here; perhaps I haven't pushed out all the relevant changes.

    Yeah, I've got bits and pieces of UI stuff (completion, caching, ERC integration, etc.), but I'm holding off on committing any of it until the new interfaces settle down to something I can live with. :)
