Is there existing .net api for cashboard?

    There has been a public API for Cashboard available at https://api.cashboardapp.com for a couple of years now.

    I've written Ruby and Javascript API wrapper implementations, but there is no public .NET implementation I'm aware of at this time.

    However, our API is a simple REST implementation, so it should be trivial for you to write a wrapper in the language of your choice.

    Documentation for the API is here.

    I am finalizing .net api library and would like to test it without polluting my production account. Is there any chance you could set me up with a test account?
    After I am done I will make the .net API public.

    Cool, sounds good Lukasz - but I don't have any "test accounts". Just sign
    up for another account and use the 14-day trial to test your API. If you
    need further time, email me and I'll extend the trial for a few months for
    more testing.

    I created a test account, and everything seems to be working fine except project lists.

    here is a request I am sending:
    POST https://api.cashboardapp.com/project_lists/ HTTP/1.1
    Authorization: Basic YXBpdGVzdDpIMU4tOEVMLTVWSi1HWkQ=
    Accept: application/json, application/xml, text/json, text/x-json, text/javascript, text/xml

    Host: api.cashboardapp.com
    Content-Length: 167
    Expect: 100-continue
    Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate


    And I get a response - project does not exist:

    [["project","does not exist"]]

    Any thoughts?

    Can you send the original JSON you're sending to the app? To me it looks like you're not namespacing it properly.

    For instance, JSON should look something like...

      project_list: {
        project_id: 123,
        title: 'my list title',
        // etc...

    you were right it was a namespace issue.
