Hi Nico,

just want to add my 2 cents to this [conversation on twitter](https://twitter.com/nzgb/status/523158046885703680):

I’ve created LamerNewsAPI because I was really bored at that time and had nothing else to do. Its only use case was to build an [alternative EchoJS client](https://github.com/sbruchmann/echojs-desktop-reader). Although there were ambitions to implement the full API, I’ve abandoned this project because of a lack of time and interest.

I’ll go ahead and deprecate the [npm package](https://www.npmjs.org/package/lamernews-api) and point users to your package, if you don’t mind.

Hey,

Yeah I saw yours, and I didn't mean to "overthrow" your package or anything, but the only piece of functionality I was really looking for was publishing news.

Unifying our efforts sounds like a good idea. I could add you as a collaborator :)

nice to see. last year, I started working on a port of LamerNews to NodeJS https://github.com/mulderp/echojs - still the encryption of credentials seemed not 100% compatible, and I did not delve too deep into it.

So far it just logs in, posts or edits news, removes news, and retrieves news. Do you think there's use cases for the rest of the API?

(getting comments, posting and removing/editing comments, updating your profile, voting, password reset, creating an account, logging out)

Nice to see the example using EchoJS :D

Getting comments I guess could be useful to following what people think about an article I posted.

Removing/editing comments could be useful for an admin to moderate, like replacing bad words, or automatically delete comments in case of plain obvious jerks (remove comments with racist slang, etc)
