Mashape Updates

    Python, Objective-C and Java client libraries
You can now consume any component in your preferred language. Along with PHP and Ruby, we now support five auto-generated client libraries! You can use the Objective-C client to build iOS apps, or create new exciting apps on Android in Java. If you create a component, you now support all these languages from day 1, giving you a wider distribution.

When Mashape pivoted, we needed to create a brand new data access object (DAO) implementation. There were two main constraints: flexibility and development speed. Flexibility meant a schema-free solution, to keep pushing features even if they required major changes in the database structure. Speed meant a library or a framework that could easily help us during the implementation. Previously, we were using MySQL + Hibernate. We were not able to iterate fast enough on the database as we were stuck with all those tables, columns and migration issues. Hibernate is a good product, but it’s a whole new…

Mashape Updates

    A new PHP server library
The PHP server library has reached version 0.6, with many improvements and bug fixes. An improved compatibility and security, by moving the server key setting from the XML description file to the implementation. We’ve added support for custom routes to make nice RESTful URLs, and the Guide has been completely rewritten with plenty of sample code.
    Auto-generated client libraries: PHP and Ruby
We’re finally taking advantage of the standard…

Good Morning folks, it’s 7:30 am (PST) and today is an important day for us – we’ve launched the Mashape API Marketplace v0.2! Mashape is a frictionless online API marketplace for developers that want to consume, generate or distribute any kind of service via APIs. We provide “RESTful JSON” APIs and traction to any application or service that runs somewhere on a server – instantly. A warm thanks to the hundreds of developers that have used our product and have helped us with feedbacks, bugs and pointed us to the right direction. In particular, a big recognition goes to Tom,…

Applications created on Mashape can be included into other apps created on the platform, but their components can be also called from the outside using our API infrastructure. This means that a published application has its own APIs and also the client libraries to call them using different popular technologies. For example, your app can be called from:
    Web Applications Desktop Applications Native Mobile Applications Wherever it’s required
Your app is programmable inside and outside Mashape from day 1! You don’t have to care about building the wrappers around the APIs, it’s our job. And also, the Mashape Client libraries…

Hey World, We’re very excited to announce our First Angel Round funding.  Almost all startups have to pass over this step. So there is nothing surprising with that. But our story till now wasn’t so easy. Most of the time Americans don’t understand how harder is to achieve the same milestones if you are outside of this world, than in the USA, if you are just a little guy with a big dream 7000 miles away from San Francisco. You have to get into the network when nobody knows you. We grew up in Italy; it’s not the kind of…
