Development update December 2016

Quick Development update before Christmas kicks in properly.

As you may know, we've been working on new API functionality this year. This feature allows Jomres to receive incoming requests from outside it's traditional browser based framework. Secondary to the API is the Webhook functionality, which allows Jomres to send information out to remote services. The two features go more or less hand-in-hand. Imagine one Jomres site being able to update another Jomres site, or the data that's shared between Jomres and a Channel Manager.

We already have the Beds24 Channel Manager plugin, but it's highly specific to Jomres <--> Beds24, so we've been working on building a more generic feature ( Webhooks ) that'll be able to transfer data to other services through what we're calling "Integrations".

Anyroad, you'll be pleased to know that the first iteration of the Webhook functionality is done. It still requires work, and the Integrations library will need work too, but it's a step further towards being feature complete.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was released as a commercial project. Since then Jomres has become the world's oldest online booking plugin for any PHP CMS. It has been used in Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 2.5, 3 & 4 and WordPress 4, 5 & 6.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. Between 2010 and 2018 he was an integral part of the project and made many significant contributions.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and Vince have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous Valentina Template Override Package.
