### The public API for sbws
As required by semantic versioning, the public API for sbws will not change
without a major version bump. The public API is
- **The available configuration options and their defaults**. New options may
be added without a major version bump, but no options will be removed, nor
will defaults be drastically changed. Examples of drastic changes to defaults
include obvious things like changing the default URL for the file to download
or a location for data storage, but also more subjective things, such as
increasing the target download time significantly (6s to 60s). Examples of an
insignificant change include changing the default client nickname. Rule of
thumb: if it is likely to affect results or sbws behavior significantly, it is
a major change.
- **The name and function of commands**. The command you run to perform certain
actions will not change in a backward incompatible way without a major
version change. For example to generate a v3bw file you will always run `sbws
generate` unless there is a major version bump and the release notes indicate
the command has changed.
- **The format of output**. Results (stored in `~/.sbws/datadir` by default)
will not change their format in a backward incompatible way without both a
major version bump and a bump in the result version integer. The v3bw file
generated with `sbws generate` will not change its format without a major
version bump. *Log lines and the output of `sbws stats` are exceptions to this
- **NOT the name, location, signature, or existance of python functions**. Sbws
is meant to be ran as a standalone program. It is not at all meant to be
treated or used like a library. Users of sbws do *not* need an understanding of
how its code is laid out. Therefore the code may change drastically without a
major version bump as long as the way users interact with it does not change in
a backward incompatible way.
## The `.sbws` directory
By default is `~/.sbws`.
