just to let everyone know that development of the Web/Network API
plugin for QGIS Desktop (purpose described here
is now well underway. So far all commits have gone into the plugin
For those interested, the README contains instructions on how to
install/test the current development versions of the plugin. In
contrast to Barry Rowlingson's experimental 'pqgisr' R package
approach taken by the GSoC project separates the 'server' side (plugin
providing programming language-independent interface to QGIS
components+data) from 'client' implementations (e.g. an R package
making use of that interface).
For the first two weeks coding has been limited to the plugin side so
there isn't much ready-to-use functionality yet, however if anyone
would be interested in testing early client versions and has any
suggestions/requests on what components/functions I should focus on,
such feedback would be most welcome!
I'm currently developing the plugin against the QGIS 2 API, but with
QGIS 3 in mind for easier conversion later on.
