Today marks an important milestone for Mashape
. We’re excited to announce that we’ve closed an $18M Series B funding round, led by Andreessen-Horowitz, with previous investors CRV and Index Ventures participating. It represents all the hard work by the team, our dedication to building the best and most open API Gateway for the enterprise, and Kong
going mainstream around the world.
This round is important for many reasons:
1) APIs play a central role. The Industrial Revolution of Software is happening. Many years ago, we had a vision of how software was going to be built. It looked a…
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

We’re thrilled to announce the acquisition of Gelato.io,
makers of the popular API Documentation and Developer Portal,
with an aim to expand and provide the service to everyone: from individual developers looking to document their API projects to Fortune 500 corporations requiring a secure and highly customizable on-premises solution.
When I met Nik
(and Adam) a couple of months ago, it was clear to both of us that we could do much more for the API economy together, and so we decided to partner almost immediately.
The first thing you will notice is an acceleration of feature development. We’ve already…
Mashape demo at Gluecon
Last week at Gluecon 2013
, we had the opportunity to show some cool demos that demonstrate the breadth and sophistication of APIs you can discover and use in Mashape. We focused on Machine Learning
, Natural Language Processing
, and Sentiment Analysis APIs
Below are links to demos shown during the presentation, as well as links to relevant news and references that point out to the growing popularity and importance of machine learning in the API realm.

Into APIs now, Yoda
Watch Jeff Kramer’s (@jeffk
on the… “history of agents and bots, and how we design and develop bot platforms for the future. We touch on MUD and IRC bots, Weavrs, Siri, Google Now, the Internet of Things, PaaS architectures, the API of Me, Xenobi and a bunch of other things”
On Mashape, Jeff makes an interesting point on the purpose of an API Marketplace to facilitate the transferability of processing units through APIs. He uses the Chatterbox Sentiment Analysis API as an example.

After an intense 24-hour coding stint that started 16th Feb for the MusicHackDay SF 2013
at the Tokbox office, we have picked our Mashape category winner, “Nightingale
”, for mashing up a bunch of APIs from Mashape, including Text Processing
, and Word Cloud Generator
, to name a few. Congratulations to Nightingale developer, Vivek Agrawal, for winning the $500 prize from Mashape! (He was also awarded the best Musixmatch category :)).
Nightingale creates a song playlist based on your tweets. (e.g. I got a bunch of “Flo Rida” songs after Nightingale analyzed my Twitter account). If…
