Brickset API change requests

RexfelisRexfelis Snohomish, WAMember Posts: 4
Apologies if this isn't the correct place to request this, but I wasn't wondering if the following could be added to the Brickset API:
1. If possible, addition of theme “logo” image/thumbnail (like those displayed on lego.com). It would be nice to be able to display these when listing themes. I've found a bunch on Wikipedia, which I could bundle with my application, but it would be nice if Brickset had those images somewhere with the URL in the database.
2. Service for fetching a set by UPC - currently there is no easy way to be able to scan a UPC from a mobile device and look it up using the existing Brickset API (that I could find).
3. Service(s) for displaying/editing a users’ profile, so a mobile app could have native UI for displaying/editing a users' profile information (after logging in, of course).

For context, I'm (slowly) working on (yet another) Brickset iOS App, so all of these requests are related to that.

    1. We used to store and display them but found it hard to keep up with them all and in some cases our themes do not align with LEGO's e.g. Advanced Models.

    2. I believe you can pass a EAN or UPC in the query field of the main search endpoint.

    3. Good idea, that should be possible.

    Ah, bummer. It's okay, though, I'll work around it. Or design around it.

    Excellent! Thank you.

    Thank you!

    Now hopefully I can get enough time to get something into the App Store in the next few months...

    @Huw Any ETA on getting API for viewing a users' profile?

    WIP on a profile screen:
    (apologies for borrowing assets/lack of design...I have yet to rope a designer into helping me out)

    Not yet but I usually do dev work over the winter so I'll try and get it done this season.
