Before you begin using the NPR Story API, you might be wondering what an API is and how it works. We've put together a handy guide to provide you with some of the more basic concepts of an API and we'll share the reasons as to why it's an important tool for your station and npr.org.
NPR Digital Services is pleased to announce a change to our Audio Streaming service.
A streamlined, simplified and more cost-effective audio streaming pricing policy will go into effect April 1, 2013. The new model is based on data usage per stream. This approach will result in a cost effective way for stations to deliver streamed content to a growing digital audience without having to worry about audience spikes.
As part of the Core Publisher on-boarding process, stations can import archived content into their new Core Publisher site. Because of the station effort required to prepare content for import, DS recommends that stations run a content analysis to determine how actively end users are accessing their archive.
Digital Services has released a plugin for use with the WordPress content management system. Released in November of 2012, this plugin will allow stations to interact with the NPR API through easy to configure plugin features that work with the latest versions of the WordPress CMS.
This plugin is hosted on GitHub https://github.com/npr/WP-DS-NPR-API and available to any user of the NPR API . To use the plugin an organization should already be set up with NPR API access.
We will not be holding our bi-weekly sprint review webinar this afternoon. All fixes and features will be going live via hotfixes over the next few days. In addition, some of the work covered in this sprint does not require a code change.
We are pleased to announce that after a significant investment of time by several Public Media entities, the Public Media Platform project has begun. Look for several future announcements on this exciting collaborative media project.
