Using ASE with your.flowingdata

As of ASE r16, python-twitter is included with Python. There is a bug that prevents it from working (the fix will be available in r17).

ASE r15 and r16 Released

I skipped release notes for r15, so I'm rolling them into the release notes for r16. So, what's new? Features: Cupcake support is back by popular demand. Built-in API browser. In the script editor, open the menu and tap "help" to see a list of all available ASE Android APIs. python-twitter package added. Anonymous usage tracking. Want to support ASE and increase development activity? Enable usage tracking! New sendEmail API supports pre-filled form fields. More and larger font sizes available for the terminal. Under the covers: Huge refactoring of the AndroidFacade and RPC classes. Without this, the built-in API browser would not exist. Thanks, Felix! In the works: Shorter time between releases. Voice-to-text support. Email attachments. More APIs. Visit the  ASE project page  to download the latest APK.
