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!
There is no secret there: we love cool t-shirts, and our laptops are covered with stickers. Since the last two years, we have a new yearly tradition at Mashape: creating a new t-shirt and sticker design related to Mashape, the API world, or our lovely mascot, Jason. This year, we want you to be part of the creative process!
We already have a bunch of ideas: “Got API?” and “API now, REST later” are some examples. They are great, but we would like you, Mashape users, to suggest to us what t-shirt you would be proud to wear at work,…

The Mashape Team…
Hi API lovers, my name is Frédéric Harper, and I’m a new Mashaper. Starting in 2015, I’ll join the fantastic Mashape team as the Head of Developer Relations.
A bit of background
Mashape has been on the road a lot last month, in fact we’ve travelled over 9500 miles collectively to raise awareness around the beautiful world of APIs.
AWS re:Invent 2014
As you might know Amazon organises an annual conference where they announce new Amazon products for the cloud, partnerships and also converges developers from all around the world in a large expo hall. With 13000
sponsors over a period of 3 days who attended the conference, this was the largest conference Mashape has ever attended!

Our first trip started in…
We are an API Hub where over 100,000 developers can consume more than 10,000 APIs. We’ve been building this business for over 3 years, and there are a lot of things that we’ve measured throughout the process which we will be sharing in this post.
Over the past 3 years, we have been working relentless to grow the API community, business and economy. We’ll be sharing some of our key metrics in this post and how we achieved them.
Growth of APIs
In the Mashape API marketplace, we host a variety of APIs which span across distinct categories and use…
Open-Sourcing Mashape’s Guardian. OAuth solved.
At Mashape, we support thousands of APIs. Over the years, we have learned a lot about different authentications and the complex world of OAuth. Today, we are happy to officially release Guardian.js
, the open-source gatekeeper that removes the OAuth dance with a single request.
In the past, the community has shown lots of love and support for our previous open-source projects: OAuthBible
. As we continue to develop new API tools, we’ll continue to share our work with the developer community!
We hope you like it,
The Mashape Team
