Hey @cantonic, yes, there is an API well underway, and it'll be a pretty core feature of Loomio going forward. As Mix mentioned, we've agreed to do several integrations with other platforms in the pretty-near future, so work will continue on making the API flexible and accessible. :sparkles:
Once it's a bit more mature, there'll be a chunk of work around documenting and publicizing the API for more widespread use, but it should be useable now if you're an early adopter type.
@elimisteve, hmm.. a cool idea, for sure.
Loomio doesn't currently have private messaging, so you'd be sticking to at-mentions / people you've replied to, I imagine; there are events in the system for these things, and they'd probably be exposed through the notifications endpoint, so potentially possible?
