Write your own HTTP API wrapper

Hey there! I'm currently working on a CLI tool to deploy WordPress apps to DigitalOcean. Check it out! It's free and open source.

Write your own HTTP API wrapper that throws exceptions — come on, you’re a programmer, do what programmers do: make a personal, convoluted abstraction layer. :-)

Andrew Nacin on WP_Error

Which is a nice read on wp-hackers by the way, about how WP_Error is used and why it shouldn’t be replaced by PHP5 exceptions, which I never liked. If you’re really thinking of writing an HTTP API wrapper, please don’t :)
