    For me it would be great to use the App Drafts on iOS to move notes into Workflowy or sent email to bring stuff in from outside

    Adding my vote for a public, REST API. Some use cases:

    1. Creating custom integrations with other platforms (e.g., Airtable)
    2. Sending things to Workflowy (to a specified bullet, etc.) from other apps
    3. Sending things from Workflowy to other apps

    Hi there,

    I'm currently playing a bit with the API for a little pet project, taking both the workflowyPHP library and this node library as starting points.

    I've noticed that a few things seem to have changed: notably, a 'castle_client_id' is now required (I guess it's for castle.io) to successfully use the endpoint to log in.

    I just wanted to check: is it still fine to (respectfully) play with the API? Are there other channels you'd prefer to communicate/discuss things? (I remember someone mentioning they exchanged some friendly and helpful messages with developers)

    Regarding my API experiments: re-using some castle_client_id generated in the browser seems to do the trick, but I'm wondering how likely this is to break? If this is indeed for castle.io, should I play nice and generate random compliant IDs? I'm using my own paid account and don't want to get banned either :)

    Kindly,
    Julien

    Hi Julien! 

    You can reach out to developers directly via the Slack group and see what you can glean:

    You can tag @jay or @anatoliy :-)

    Hi @Frank - is there a general invite link to that Slack group available? That link seems to have expired but if possible, I would love to similarly get in touch with other folks working with the API
