00:17 <swulf--> Hmmm. GET /1/location/last returns me 404/not found (when acting as an application). I've tried ?user_id=XXX /location/last/XXX as well as posting {'user_id': XXX}... still can't get a user's last location as an application
00:20 <swulf--> even tried using ?username=XXXXXXXXXXXXX and still get error_code 400, 'missing_user'
00:26 <swulf--> http://developers.geoloqi.com/api/console?method=location/last well crap even this returns 404 not found

09:33 <Anthony> Hey there
09:33 <aaronpk> good morning
09:33 <Loqi> good morning! Clear and 62 degrees
09:33 <aaronpk> b0nz: hello, sorry I didn't see you earlier
09:35 <Anthony> Quick questions about the data on the api... I want a website/app that shows the cafes and bars in chicago. Is there a way I can hide certain results from the data that geoloqi shows? For example, I want to only show bars that are part of my website
09:35 <Loqi> ACTION gives Anthony a website
09:36 <aaronpk> Anthony: you'd have to import that data from somewhere, we recommend using Factual as a good place to get that kind of data
09:37 <aaronpk> if you import the data you'd be putting it on a layer in your app, and so your app would only show data that you imported
09:38 <Anthony> Ok cool, i'll take a look at their data then. Just trying to stay away from foursquare
09:38 <aaronpk> ah, foursquare has good data too
09:41 kenichi joined #geoloqi
09:41 <Anthony> which one would you prefer? I've used fsq for an app and it seems like the api calls change all the time.
09:42 <aaronpk> well the Factual API is made for this kind of thing. the Foursquare API is more for building apps that use foursquare somehow
09:53 <Anthony> alright thanks aaron, going to request download with factual and go from there

12:28 <b0nz> Aaron are you still here?
12:30 <b0nz> Im building location based app and I'm getting the location from the users to my servers all the time
12:30 <b0nz> Can i use geoloqi and still give advanced location based logic in my server?

13:01 <patrickarlt> aaronpk: ^^
13:02 <aaronpk> b0nz: hello. Yes, you could send the data from your server to the Geoloqi API so that you can use our geotrigger features
13:07 <b0nz> you still here ?
13:07 <aaronpk> yes hi
13:07 <b0nz> Hi :)
13:07 <b0nz> Today my server gets all the location from the users
13:07 <b0nz> even when app in background with iOS
13:09 <b0nz> and when the user run "Find" my server analyse all the locations he has and give the user answer
13:10 <b0nz> It's not exatcly geotag
13:11 <aaronpk> ok
13:12 <b0nz> can i still do it with geoloqi ?
13:12 <aaronpk> do what exactly?
13:14 <b0nz> Ok lets say I have an app that shows me all the users with smartphones around me
13:14 <aaronpk> ah, ok
13:14 <aaronpk> yes, we have a way to do that with the geoloqi api
13:15 <b0nz> but wait
13:15 <b0nz> theres another layer
13:15 <aaronpk> ok
13:15 <b0nz> I wanna show how happy each user around me by what he initialy put
13:16 <b0nz> so i have user profiles in my apps that shows how happy the user is
13:16 <b0nz> so when the user will open the map
13:16 nohorse joined #geoloqi
13:16 <b0nz> i would wanna ask for all the locations
13:16 <b0nz> and how "happy" each user is
13:17 <aaronpk> Ok yes, you can use our "groups" for that
13:17 <aaronpk> if all the users are in a group, you can retrieve the location and user profile of each user in the group here: http://developers.geoloqi.com/api/group/locations/:token
13:18 <aaronpk> notice the "extra" parameter in the user's profile, you can store custom data there, such as how "happy" each user is
13:18 <b0nz> but geoloqi would ask my servers for the user profile ?
13:18 <b0nz> how would he know which groupd dynamicly
13:19 <b0nz> ?
13:19 <aaronpk> no, you'd need to store the user profile in the geoloqi api too, or at least a copy of it
13:21 <b0nz> So if the user wanna change his mood i would update my server and then update yours?
13:22 <aaronpk> yep
13:22 <b0nz> and if i understand correctly my servers would not know where the users are?
13:23 <aaronpk> correct, but if you did want to your server could ask the geoloqi API where the users are
13:24 <b0nz> around specific point or all of them ?
13:25 <aaronpk> the API method I linked earlier returns all users
13:28 <b0nz> So to summarise it, if i will let geoloqi to track my users and then when a user opens the app and wants to see all the moods of people around him
13:29 <b0nz> i will send me servers the user location, then get all the user near him from geoloqi with the method you should me, then get their profiles from my server
13:30 <b0nz> and show them to the user
13:33 <b0nz> :) did i ask to much
13:33 <b0nz> Its just hard to understand how you system work from the website
13:33 <b0nz> your*
13:35 patrickarlt joined #geoloqi
14:12 <aaronpk> b0nz: actually we don't have an API method to return nearby users. only for returning nearby places. That's a great suggestion, though.
14:14 <b0nz> so if i would want to do it now i would have to get all the people in the group and figure it out with my servers who's nearby?
14:15 jonfrisby joined #geoloqi
14:16 <aaronpk> that sounds right
14:17 <b0nz> and what if i have 100,000 users
14:17 <aaronpk> then let's talk and see if we can get that added to our API :)
14:17 <aaronpk> we already have the data in place for that, just need to add an API method to query it
14:18 <b0nz> but regardless of "group" i want all my users in one group
14:18 <aaronpk> right
14:19 <b0nz> can i store uniq username for each user in your system ?
14:20 <aaronpk> yes, you can use the "key" for that
14:20 <b0nz> Ok that starting to sound much better
14:21 <b0nz> so i would keep all the business logic in my servers
14:21 <b0nz> and when user wants to see nearby people
14:21 <aaronpk> yep, and you can just use the geoloqi API for the location storage and querying
14:22 <b0nz> he will ask my server for nearby people then my server will ask geoloqi for nearby users and my server will return it with business logic layer
14:24 <aaronpk> sounds right
14:24 <b0nz> Very good
14:24 <b0nz> I hope I'm not missing anything
