Be reminded with Beeminder, now on Mashape! Posted 8 months ago

Do you have problems setting new goals and sticking to them?  We’ve just discovered your solution and, guess what, it’s available in an API.  Amazing!

Your goals can be anything quantifiable — weight, pushups, number of cigarettes, or how long it takes you to bike to work.  Answer with your number when Beeminder asks — or connect a physical fitness monitoring device — and the API will show your progress and a Yellow Brick Road to follow to stay on track.

If you go off track, you pledge money to stay on the road the next time.  If you go off track again, Beeminder charges you.  Nothing like an API to keep you fit and your bank account strong.  Try it on Mashape today.

GoSquared real-time traffic monitoring joins Mashape Posted 8 months ago

image

GoSquared is a real-time traffic-monitoring app that provides an overview of a website’s visitors in a single glance.  The GoSquared API lets a developer see which pages are most popular, as well as granular information on every visitor currently on their website.  GoSquared displays how a visitor is browsing, including their origination point, what type of browser they’re using, operating system, and screen size of the visitor.

To help distribute GoSquared’s API they selected Mashape’s API marketplace.  We pride ourselves on having an easy integration solution and robust analytics for our community of developers and API providers.  “APIs make the world go round for us and we understand the importance of being able to get up and running in minutes. That’s why we were drawn to Mashape,” said Hugh Hopkins of GoSquared.  We’re excited have GoSquared join our community.

Mashape Rocks a Thursday Night Posted 8 months ago

Thanks to our friend Mustafa Khan and everyone at Innovation Endeavors we got an early start to the weekend.  Last night DJ Effit kept the party going and chef Mark Mullan prepared the best guacamole and quesadillas we’ve every tasted.  Thanks guys!

Artist George Lin dropped by Mashape’s office and created an amazing cityscape of San Francisco.  We asked our guests to sign their names and add a little color to the mural.  Looks incredible, don’t you think?

Have a great weekend – party like a Mashaper!

#HumanAPI hackathon finishes with 30 health-focused apps Posted 9 months ago

image

Last weekend we had the privilege of being a sponsor to the launch/hackathon of Human API.  The Human API is a platform that lets developers easily and securely integrate health data into their apps.  It lets you aggregate all your health information from other providers/APIs and selectively access health information in groups (e.g. Activities, Blood glucose, etc).  This gives developers a holistic view of a person’s health information that can be used to contribute to the progress in the medical/health industry through apps.

The 24-hackathon ended with 30 creative projects ranging from a 'Mommy' app (that constantly nags you to get into exercise mode) to something more practical like the 'Patient Intake Forms' which takes out the pain of filing out forms repeatedly.  You can check out the whole list of projects here.

Here are some teams that used APIs that are listed in Mashape.  Needless to say, they are our favorites! ;)
