Jomres REST API Endpoint Documentation

The Jomres REST API documentation has been updated.

Up until now the endpoints have been available on our manual, here. Given that I do a lot of testing of the API through Postman, it makes sense to take advantage of Postman's functionality, which is way better than mine that's built into Jomres, therefore from now on the endpoints can be seen on our new server

Quickstarts updated 9.8.21

The Jomres Quickstarts have been updated.

We don't update them for every version as it's a huge job, so this is something that's done every few months.

In a departure from our normal process, all of the Quickstarts now come pre-installed with encoded versions of the plugins, instead of the unencoded ones.

This allows us to offer the Quickstarts to Trial users too. If you're a full license holder just enter a full license key in Site Configuration and in the plugin manager click the button marked "Reinstall all installed plugins" to get the unencoded versions of those files.

Write any valid SQL query in the administration of this component and combine such queries into multiple Excel worksheets/workbooks. The query is executed when a user clicks the downloadlink (frontend or backend) and the current result of the query is delivered to the user as a downloadable Excel file (or any other of the below listed document formats).

Why is Jomres a plugin for Wordpress and Joomla?


I've been writing and maintaining Jomres as a plugin for Joomla since 2005. Ever since then, especially around 2008-2009 when there were doubts as to the security of both Wordpress and Joomla, I've had plenty of people ask "Why is Jomres a plugin? It's big enough to be a standalone system". Indeed, it is and for a while I offered functionality in Jomres to make it standalone, but when in that format I felt that sites built with it lacked a certain something.

New Beds24 V2 plugin Alpha testing

As you may be aware, after months of work our new Beds24 ( V2 ) plugin is almost ready, and I'd like to invite our users to help us in the testing process.

The Beds24 (channel manager) v2 plugin has been completely re-written to take advantage of new functionality in Jomres, most notably the REST API and Webhook features. If you´re not familiar with this new functionalty, don´t worry about it, most of it happens in the background however it provides us with significant performance and feature benefits.

If you are willing to help us test V2 of the plugin, there are a few things you need to know.

Jomres 9.8.25 has been released

I consider this something of a milestone as it's the version where the REST API and Webhooks functionality are both fully integrated into the Core where appropriate.

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.

vince picDeveloped and maintained by Vince Wooll, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

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 formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

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.
