The YAMU post on Ministry Of Crab, now with Foursquare comments.
Janith is here and he’s dev’d a nice integration of YAMU and Foursquare. Now, on any post with a matching Foursquare entry, you’ll get the comments other people have posted. As you can see above, our review of MoC is matched with what ye masses have said on 4SQ. It doesn’t work for absolutely every post (some don’t have entries, some we haven’t matched the name exactly) but it works for most. Check it out. It doesn’t work for the first entry which is a small bath kade, but it works for most.
The code works roughly by first having a Foursquare API account and then matching the name and address we have with their database. That gives us the venue ID. Then we can use that venue ID to pull the comments from them. Presumably you could enter the venue ID manually, but this is simpler for the people inputting places, AKA me.
The site is also mostly Sinhala and growing more Tamil, thanks to Ajith Jayasinghe (highly recommended), Thameera, Neranji, Ushan, and Irshath, who volunteered via Facebook to translate into Tamil. Working working.
