It’s the the most wonderful time of the year! In 2015 Mashape
launched several products and open source projects, plus we’ve acquired Gelato from an incredible team. To bring in the the New Year we’d like to share with you all the new developments.
Open-Source API Management Layer
In just 8 months and 500,000 downloads Kong became the most adopted API proxy and #1 starred API tool on Github
. Based on NGINX and with over 20 plugins, Kong can replace any legacy solution for free.
API Analytics Platform
Thousands of API engineers &…
new design reflects our mission and the multi products company that we have become during 2015.
In 2011 we launched the first API Marketplace,
which has grown to over 15,000 APIs and 200,000 developers in the community. Since then we’ve built a lot of useful tools for ourself. Last April we decided to spin off several products and make them available to everyone. Starting with open-sourcing Mockbin
we most recently released Galileo
for API Analytics. Late last year we acquired Gelato.io –
our family is now bigger than ever and it was the…
Buzzlogix is Smart Social Media Management software and has recently released the engine behind their tool. Their recently released Text Analysis API
based on natural language processing and machine learning, is quickly finding a way into developers’ toolboxes. Buzzlogix allows app developers to integrate into their applications for free (there are also other plans available for larger or growing enterprises.) A key component of this API is the use of natural language processing – a branch of artificial intelligence that deals with understanding the language, or languages humans use to interact with computers. Essentially, this technology allows users to analyze…
At Trooclick, we’re passionate about the news. That’s why we just launched a groundbreaking new app to make life easier for news and publishing professionals.
In an environment where time is scarce, producing quality news content is no mean feat. Knowing “Who Said What” about big issues is essential, but quotes and details can be difficult to come by. Imagine an app that delivered structured data about a person or issue of your choice, without the arduous task of searching hundreds of sources; Trooclick’s
game-changing new API does just that.
Our NewsData API
automatically extracts quotes and related details from…
During our last post, we discussed a few use cases for leveraging the technology of the Slice API
to its full potential. In this installment, we will take you through how integration with our API has enabled developers to create their own unique user experiences.
The great thing about the Slice API is that our technology empowers developers with endless opportunities to create experiences that help users with all aspects of the post-purchase experience. We’ve worked with startups like Gone
that help customers manage their purchases, with help from our item level data. Our real-time shipment tracking also…
Ah, weather apps. Often imitated, often duplicated. There are literally hundreds of weather apps out there pulling the same weather data and they’re all basically the same… right? What if you could make an app about weather that wasn’t a weather app though? Travel, lifestyle, sports, bridal and many other types of apps using weather, that would be pretty cool right? Well that’s what we’re doing.
Sure, weather apps are great and can definitely benefit from our forecasts. In fact one of the most popular weather apps on the market, 1Weather, recently started including our long range forecasts. But for…
In our last post, we introduced the Slice API and shared with you a bit of the journey that inspired us to offer a public API for developers to retrieve purchase history from their users who have opted in. We touched on a few of the use cases, but didn’t go into much depth on what we see as the potential reach of our technology. So today, we’re going to describe a few of the most compelling concepts that we’ve seen for our data integrations that we’ve seen at hackathons or mocked up internally and haven’t had time to build…
The Slice API provides developers with item-level purchase history for their opted-in users, enabling enhanced and personalized experiences with online shopping data from more than 500,000 merchants. Once a user has opted into our service, we draw primarily on the purchases contained in their email inboxes, and provide extremely high-accuracy data on spending habits, which merchants a user tends to buy from, how much a user spends on different types of products, and so on, as well as up-to-date information on the status of any shipments that a user has in flight.
We power apps that deal with all aspects…
It is with a great pleasure that we introduce Mockbin
, service to help developers mock, test, and track HTTP calls with ease!
As maintainers of the popular Unirest HTTP Library
and Mashape API marketplace
supporting more than 10,000 APIs, we’re always testing against edge cases, and a variety of HTTP calls. Instead of relying on a random collection of services and tools to test different capabilities of an HTTP client and debug API requests, we created Mockbin in order to streamline our code and test with just a single source with guaranteed results, all while being able to…
Users of the Mashape Marketplace
enjoy access to automatically generated code snippets for every API listed in the market.
Today, we’re sharing the love with everyone: Announcing APIembed.com
a free service to auto-generate embeddable code snippets in many programming languages for your website, blog or API documentation.
We’re starting with a number of languages/cli tools including: cURL, Go, Java, Python, HTTPie, Node.js, Objective-C, OCaml, PHP, Wget,
with more to come as we expand the service.
The service is open-source
, so you can contribute your favorite programming language as well. We’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions!
