It was originally conceived by Lisa Dusseault, and is currently being developed and maintained by Grant Baillie.
Its primary client is the Chandler Sharing Project.
Zanshin works at the level of resources and properties of resources, rather than HTTP requests and responses.
This, coupled with careful thought about what data to persist, will hopefully lead to an easier-to-use and better performing API than what you get by making the obvious 1:1 mapping between Python method calls and HTTP requests.

We hackers love our keyboards, but you probably find yourself more efficient with your hands on the keyboard as much as possible.
That's why we crafted Zanshin carefully to be completely drivable from the keyboard.
We added shortcuts to add tasks, move them to a project or a context, navigate, etc.
