I should have written an article/tutorial on how to implement/use Shindig to convert your SNS into and OpenSocial compliant SNS. Time, however, has prevented me from doing it so far. May be sometime later.
For now, you can have a look at my presentation on the same topic. I had presented it at Barcamp Bangalore 7, and PHPCamp Pune. It was recommended by Dan Peterson, Google, on the Shindig developer’s mailing list. 🙂
For those who don’t have an idea what I am talking about; I have been (officially) working on OpenSocial for quite sometime. OpenSocial is a specification developed by giants like Google, MySpace, Ning, etc. to provide a common platform (API) for social app developers. Shindig, an Apache incubator project, is what can help your site become OpenSocial compliant.
By the way, I am referring to the Six degrees of Separation in the initial slides. 🙂
