API for user preferences

Reported by: Immanuel Scholz Owned by: Tom Hughes
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: api Version:
Keywords: Cc:


A way to store and retrieve user preferences settings would be cool. The applet and other offline editors could use this to store (and share) online user preferences.

Simplest, yet enough would be a user defined string in the user-table which can be read and set by the user using XML interface itself (and is visible only to the user).

Next comfort is, of course, a table of key/value pairs like every other property in OSM.

Note that this is better than a cookie, since it is stored on the server, so it is shared accross different machines.

Only concern: Do users want this? (Maybe privacy issue?) I'd say: they want it! (They even don't care about passwords transfered and stored in DB as clear-text ;)
