Rumors aboard Mashape's spaceship

The following is a guest post from Simply Wall St, an Australian-based startup backed by AWI Ventures. Simply Wall St aims to simplify investing for everyone. The most daunting aspect first-time investors face when entering the market can be choosing the most appropriate stock to buy, particularly if the user is unfamiliar with complex tables and dense financial reports. Simply Wall St addresses this by presenting stock data in a new, visual format, one that can be easily appreciated by the new investor and veterans alike. The result is the Snowflake, a graphical interpretation of live stock data, which…

  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…

Last week, we introduced the Breezometer Air Quality API. This week, we have a second guest post from Breezometer on how to create an Air Quality and Weather API mashup. The goal of this post is to demonstrate how easy it is to integrate BreezoMeter’s Air Quality Data through Mashape platform. There are endlessness use cases for Air Quality data, and this is just a small example on how we used Mashape’s awesome API service.   In the example below, we decided to use PHP foundation of WordPress that will combine our API with the Simple weather API on…

Rest Api con @orliesaurus http://t.co/DhMsqZgCC0 pic.twitter.com/7gXAFFIfMy — Michele Nasti (@micnasti) March 27, 2015 Mashape recently had the pleasure of speaking at Codemotion, a developer-led conference held in Rome on 27th-28th March, with our Mashaper, @orliesaurus, in attendance. The conference, held at one of Rome’s many universities, was jam-packed, with a huge crowd of talented developers in attendance. Most of the attendees poured into Rome from all over Italy, with many even flying in from abroad to participate. IoT, 3D printing, microservices and remote working were just some of the hot topics the conference focused on.

The following is a guest post from Breezometer. Don’t forget to consume the Breezometer Air Quality API on Mashape! Recently announced as “the most promising startup company in 2014” by Global Entrepreneurship Week, BreezoMeter’s unique API has just landed on Mashape. BreezoMeter was invented to make air quality data as simple, intuitive and actionable as weather. The company’s core technology is in mapping air quality – historical, real time and projected – at street-level resolution. This is unique and valuable information that has many interesting use cases for many types of businesses and people.

Every March, college basketball fans find themselves deep in the throes of March Madness, even President Obama gets in on the fun. Here at Mashape, we were disappointed to find that developers were not invited to the party. The NCAA has no official APIs available. In fact, we couldn’t find any free public API out there! Something had to be done, so we made our own just in time for the Sweet Sixteen. Unfortunately, the NCAA and other sports leagues have yet to embrace open data and the innovations it can spur. Imagine a bracket predicting engine, real-time matchup-based…

This is why we often participate and sponsor hackathons. Most of the time we sponsor a category prize; where to win, you must use one of the 10,000+ APIs in our marketplace. We strive to find cool prizes you’ll enjoy, such as Arduino or Raspberry Pi starting kits, RC Quadcopters, Android tablets, and more. Since teams usually consist of four members, we always have a prize for each…

Every other weekend, there is a hackathon to attend. Not all hackathons are the same though. Attendees, food, sponsors, ideas, and location all vary constantly and bring a unique vibe. Engineering your idea from 0 till the time you demo to everyone else on stage is a unique feeling. If you’ve never been to a hackathon, you should go. In my life, I have attended tons of hackathons around the globe. I used to go to one a week in my earlier days; sometimes, I split myself between two hackathons too! I have always been impressed by the passion…
