So you’ve just finished writing your document, but you need to add supporting data.  Use WebMerge.  The newest API to join Mashape is an amazing tool that lets you easily combine documentation and data sets, and share the customized document internally or with 3rd party users.

The WebMerge REST API, found here, allows 3rd party applications to pull and integrate document and data routing information into their system; then send data to each document via webhooks using a unique URL.

Once implemented you simply setup a template using a fillable PDF, Microsoft Word document, or use WebMerge’s online editor.  Next, generate a customized document with data from a trusted 3rd party or upload your own content.  Each customized document can be shared via email or sent to a cloud storage service; additionally, you can use a webhook to send the document to another API or applicable service.

Also, the WebMerge API allows you to use one feed and push data to different documents based on predefined values.  As an example one form can be used for multiple solutions, such as lead generation, where different user answers prompt specific PDF formatted responses.  Ultimately, you can map a user’s document fields to the data in your application, and then automatically merge the document for them.

Mashape is thrilled to have WebMerge join our community, and we think you’ll appreciate their solution as well.

Vufind’s Predictive Intelligence Solution Joins Mashape Posted 3 months ago


We’re excited to have Vufind, a social and visual intelligence utility for maximizing marketing and ecommerce conversion, join our community. 

Vufind is a mobile personalization and predictive intelligence solution based on their Interest Graph (vuGraph); which analyzes and aggregates a user’s opted-in social activities, including visual analytics on photos and videos, to compute the richest persona profile for each user that reflects true intent.

The platform’s visual analytics engine is not domain-constrained, meaning Vufind’s solution can focus on any object from any genre, natural or man-made, and deformable (food) or non-deformable (logo, purse, long dress, high-heels, dining room, Disney Castle, Golden Gate Bridge, etc.)  It can also capture higher-level concepts such as “modern décor” or “outdoors.”  The Vufind engine is configurable to show only tags when classifier confidence is very high; therefore, mitigate false-positive rates, or be aggressive and show as many tags as possible even when the classifier confidence is low.

Vufind’s API enables the relevance revolution and serves the intersection of personalized commerce, behavioral and contextual ad targeting, and image-based contextual commerce.  etailers and app publishers with social login and media-rich content use the Vufind API to power combined behavioral and contextual relevance to boost engagement, conversion, and monetization. 

You can consume Vufind’s API endpoint in any programming language (made even easier by our Unirest HTTP client) or with curl as in this example:
