We are Web people, and we believe in the power of creating connections online: Twitter
, and Google+
. You name it, we have a presence there so you can always reach us. We also think that as great as our relationship can be online, nothing will replace face-to-face interaction. Being present at user groups and conferences are a great way to meet new people, and strengthen virtual relations.
Now, there is an easy way for you to request for us to speak at your conference, mentor your hackathon or sponsor your event.…
Here’s a list of resources on how to make REST calls in different languages. (We also have this list of 40+ tutorials on how to create an API in different languages
If you dabble with one or more of these languages in your different projects, we highly recommend that you check out Unirest.io
, an open source lightweight HTTP client library. It’s goal is to provide a consistent way for developers to make HTTP calls across different languages (node.js
If you have suggested additions to…
After the successful launch of Unirest
, an open source lightweight http client library, we received a lot of requests for a C# .NET port on Windows Desktop and Windows 8. Even before we got to work, we’ve received contributions from the open source community who ported Unirest to .NET.
This tutorial will show you how to use the Windows 8 (RT) port of Unirest
in your application (We will follow this up with the Windows Desktop port
in a later post, but it will follow pretty much the same steps). Let’s get started!
NOTE: We will be updating this…
In this short tutorial we will use Python in our Mac Terminal
to consume one of the Machine Learning APIs in this list
. Let’s pick DuckDuckGo
DuckDuckGo lets us define people, places, things, words, and concepts. It also provides a list of related topics. This is very useful if you want to get some context on a certain text.
Although we’re picking DuckDuckGo, note that the steps below also applies to the rest of the APIs in the Machine Learning APIs
list, and all Mashape APIs
. That means you can swap in and swap out APIs for…
This video tutorial shows how you can add billing to your API in minutes, through Mashape’s Billing Addon.
How to Monetize your APIs in minutes using Mashape’s Billing Addon
from Chris Ismael
UPDATE (Dec 10, 2013): The instructions below are outdated. Please head to this post on how to call Mashape APIs in your Android projects.
One of the ways that Mashape facilitates easy consumption of APIs is by offering auto-generated client libraries for several programming languages, for each of the APIs. You can see these as a row of buttons lined up in the middle-right section of each API page in Mashape.
Auto-generated client libraries
This saves both the API provider and consumer / developer a huge amount of coding time and manpower, which allows them to attend to more important…

Raising venture capital is like adding rocket fuel to your business. For most businesses this is not warranted, creates the wrong incentives and even if it was successful, the dilution resulting from multiple rounds of VC funding means that the founders do not make enough personal money when the business is ultimately sold.

We came across this article by Jacob Kaplan-Moss
titled “What to write
“. The article shares some great tips on writing great technical documentation. We’ve reproduced some parts of the article and summarized some main points below which we think would be the most useful for Mashapers.
Formats of a technical documentation
A well-documented project needs to provide many different forms of documentation. At a high level, you can break down the different types of technical documentation you need to provide into three different formats:
Overviews and topical guides to the various conceptual areas of your project, …
