The Developer Portal also outlines developer guidelines and lets developers manage their apps and view analytics such as app usage, views, download numbers, and payments.

by Elballesta3D

It had a "Shopping List" design which a few days ago was no longer available, I can only see it when I log in with my profile.
What could have happened?

"Save & View" doesn't save and show summary edits

by Nico_mmie

I've been trying to post a Thing for several weeks. But before publishing it, I would like to save the information filled in and see it as it will be displayed when published. Obviously, the pictures, the files, and the printing parameters are saved correctly. But the summary is not saved. I specify that I edit the summary in Markdown language that I just copy/paste via the Markdown Monster software.

Until a few weeks ago, Thingiverse had no problem saving my Things in this language. Of course, I tried to fill in the summary without any formatting, but the problem remains.I've tried editing Things with other browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Edge) and using several different computers and operating systems (Windows 10 and iOS) but nothing works.

Do you have a tip to help me overcome this problem please?

Updating thing description / summary returns "null"

by Chrismettal


currently writing an automatic project deployment script, but getting hold up on the thing description patching.

I am able to upload most of the data specified in the API reference (name, license, category, is_wip and tags) as well as upload and delete files of all kinds, but uploading the description does not work, as the description always gets set to "null" after patching.

I am using the following params block for patching. All types are strings except "is_wip" which is bool, as defined in the API reference.

params = {
"name": thingdata["name"],
"license": thingdata["license"],
"category": thingdata["category"],
"description": thingdata["description"],
"is_wip": thingdata["is_wip"],
"tags": thingdata["tags"]

thingdata["description"] is meant to hold a markdown string, but for now I am just using the string "Autodeploy" for testing, which still isn't accepted, so my description will be "null" again.

Did the implementation of the description object change and is not just a bare string, or are there new, undocumented API objects for the new summary blocks etc. that I need to write instead?
