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.

Today Tinypay.me, one of the biggest European e-commerce platform, launches its API through Mashape. We are very excited to be part of this! I think their API is the first ever that allows any developer in the world to add e-commerce functionalities in a day – yes, in a day. Tinypay.me has chosen to create and distribute their API through Mashape, allowing developers to easily create e-commerce applications (web, mobile, desktop) in a couple of hours. Developers can simply let other users login to their application with their PayPal account, and let them put both physical and digital…

Reposted from the Tinypay blog If you’re reading this, my guess is that you didn’t get to have a Valentine date tonight. No worries. At least you have enough time at hands to check out our API that’s launched in private beta today! You can check out all the details of our API on our newly launched developer blog. But first, let me tell you a little story.

The story of our API

The ideas of our API go way back. We’ve started working on it back in July 2010, when we didn’t even know which way to go…

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…

SpeedFuning – Angels Den 21 June 2010 – WinsfordImage credit: https://flic.kr/p/8crjfb Silicon Valley is changing rapidly in many aspects. Today I want to highlight two related trends in the web/tech industry (non-biotech). The transformation of high tech, sophisticated companies into something that “just works”. This scenario is causing the end of the due diligence process for seed investments as there is no longer anything to dig into anymore; you just have to share a few signup numbers, active users and growth rate. You don’t need more than 2 hours! 10 years ago, companies like Google were running on powerful proprietary…

“.. almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” – Steve Jobs Quote from Steve Jobs…
