SuperNET API testers and bounties!

I had a long chat with James/jl777, felt a need to ask some questions on behalf of Nxt + SN investors.

The interview is being edited atm and will be posted on NXTER.ORG, then translated and spread all around.
We all need to take into account the consequences of the SN-NXT break-up and talk to each other again. Both projects are important, IMO.

I’ll post some of our talk here. Do act on it. :)

It must be hard to prioritise what capabilities of SN you should work on.

jl777
not really. i prioritize by what has a tester ready to test
simple as that
it is 10x more efficient for me to work on something with an active tester so I get feedback right away, instead of months later (or never)
(…)

I was planning to do an active tradebot for the SuperBTC market
but not sure if NXT people’s will use it
they could use it via AE, just by using AE

apenzl
I think they will. SuperBTC is getting more and more attention, some asset issuers started using it for dividends too.

jl777
the tradebots accumulate a way to specify some long term action
you would be able to say buy 10,000 NXT at anything lower than .000025 over next week
and it will keep checking the orderbook and submitting orders when it sees it can do this
this is what I am testing this weekend and will use this to create a SuperBTC market in the AE

CALL FOR TESTERS

jl777
Responsive API testers are what is needed the most
people dont realize that testing takes a lot of time and effort and right now guess who is having to do all that testing?
and the testing doesnt require coding, just common sense
if you can fill out a form from the API page, you can test the API

apenzl
Just the word “API” scares most non-coders.

jl777
ok “web form testers” then
it is a web form

apenzl
Haha, such re-wording might actually work

jl777
all the fields are there, fill them out, click the button
then the hard part is to interpret the results…
but no coding, all via web page form

apenzl
Good. Let’s try to get people involved in filling out web forms then.

jl777
We have funds to pay testers
but nobody steps forward
I just think very few are technical at all and most just want to have things magically work

1 BTC NXT PLUGIN BOUNTY

jl777
now one thing that a NXT plugin dev could do is see if iguana will run as a NXT plugin
if so, then it will mean iguana can become a NXT plugin
since it is html theoretically it can, but it is nonstandard and I fear asking the NXT core devs as they will probably say that is improper usage of NXT plugins (…).

1 BTC NXT exchange support bounty  [See update* below]

[Also,]
if some NXT dev wants to help, then he can make a NXT exchange support by coding the exchange specific file for NXT

I used to have all the NXT stuff direct in the main code, so I never needed a NXT exchange module
it is about 300 lines of code for most exchanges

those are two very specific things that would be massively accelerated if some NXTer would step up

the latter I can always do in a day or so, but which day, that is the question
the former is outside my expertise. maybe it is easy or impossible, have no idea

apenzl
Bounties available?

jl777
of course
1 BTC worth for either of those

but I might just end up doing the NXT exchange module myself as part of the market makers
so they need to check to see if it is already done or not

UPDATE*

jl777today:
i made the nxtae exchange support in iguana.
