Whiteboard

With the upcoming refactor about to land, that could easily be done with a plugin. -Scott

OK, thanks. Do you have any idea how you might implement this? And I think that if you include it by default, it would be a good idea to include it as a bundled plugin, so that a user could disable it if they wanted to. -MW RPG

There is no (public) official pandora API. The only API is an unofficial one at http://pan-do-ra-api.wikia.com/wiki/Pan-do-ra_API_Wiki. For those legal reasons, it could not be bundled with beatbox. However, it looks pretty easy to use and shouldn't be to hard to implement. -Scott

Ok, thanks. But when you say "legal reasons", you don't mean that it's illegal, right? -MW RPG

Well it's an unofficial API which means that Pandora themselves never released one which means that somebody reverse engineered/hacked that API together. So yes, I'd say it is. -Scott

Technically it is legal. -Jack
