A modern API that uses industry standards (oauth, rest, json) for Lightroom cloud

The current CreativeSDK for creating software that interacts with Lightroom cloud is a huge pain to use. I have been looking at it for the last few days because I want to create a few simple scripts to improve my workflow. It is badly documented, locks you down to specific languages and platforms. Basically, it is the worst developer product I have ever seen.

Please provide a modern API based on industry standards. That is OAuth, REST, JSON and well documented (in the same way that every other modern API is documented). Preferably make it a swagger API so that generating libraries for various languages can be done automatically.

I just worked my way through the first few Creative SDK examples. It was poorly documented and painful to get working.  Based on the paucity of updates at Github and on the Adobe.io Web site, it looks like the Creative SDK is dead or dying.
