Hey Michael,

The doodle3d API looks pretty cool - I actually hadn't seen this one
before. Here's my take:


   - in active development (Tegh is no longer being developed unfortunately
   - I've stopped development to focus on my day job)
   - restful (simple, stateless, web and mobile devs are already familiar
   with it)
   - simpler JSON payloads then Tegh (less nested JSON)
   - no need for broadcast-based service discovery (ie. mdns or upnp which
   in my experience less developers are familiar with)
   - has an API for printer configuration (Tegh did not)
   - compatible with tons of 3D printers


   - centralized/needs to be connected to the internet (depends on
   http://connect.doodle3d.com/api/ for printer discovery)
   - only supports a single hotend/extruder (AFAIK?)
   - larger json payloads for status polling (compared to Tegh change
   - no websocket or long polling api => no realtime events (developers
   have to implement ajax polling if they want something approximately the
   same however it's generally less efficient and in my experience a good way
   to kill cellphone batteries really quickly)
