Description

Smuxi needs to replace the .NET Remoting API with a Web API as .NET Remoting is deprecated , is not supported on mobile .NET platforms (like MonoDroid and MonoTouch) and limits frontends to a .NET based or enabled programming language. For this reason a modern and cross-language web API is needed that makes use of current web standards like HTTP, REST and JSON.

ServiceStack and SignalR are candidates to reach this goal.

A playground which interfaces this web API needs to provide can found here: https://live.gnome.org/Smuxi/Protocol/Zero
