Open-Sourcing Mashape’s Guardian. OAuth solved.
At Mashape, we support thousands of APIs. Over the years, we have learned a lot about different authentications and the complex world of OAuth. Today, we are happy to officially release Guardian.js
, the open-source gatekeeper that removes the OAuth dance with a single request.
In the past, the community has shown lots of love and support for our previous open-source projects: OAuthBible
. As we continue to develop new API tools, we’ll continue to share our work with the developer community!
We hope you like it,
The Mashape Team
Get rid of…
As proud contributors to the open source community, nothing makes us happier than getting feedback and support from developers who like to make things better.
Shortly after we released Unirest.io
, we received a ton of feedback from developers who would like to get a Windows 8 and .NET port. Before we can even get to it, we received contributions from Michael Azarkevich
and Michael Sync
who ported Unirest to the two platforms. To the two Michaels, a HUGE THANK YOU! You rock m/
We have officially rolled them in with the rest of the Unirest libraries here
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…
UPDATE: We’ve got a lot of comments and suggestions on the ‘Unicorn’ naming. We apologize for the confusion and are working on finding a new name. Have a suggestion? Tweet us @mashape
UPDATE #2: We picked a new name, unirest.io
is up and running.
UPDATE #3: Check our latest post on “Unicorn has become Unirest
Here at Mashape, we use a lot of open source. Our tech stack includes a lot of popular frameworks and libraries which have allowed us to rapidly iterate and develop what we feel is the best cloud API proxy and marketplace the universe…
In a shocking announcement Google has announced the end of Google Reader
and its associated unofficial Google API after 8 years.
So, on July 1, 2013, we will retire Google Reader. Users and developers interested in RSS alternatives can export their data, including their subscriptions, with Google Takeout over the course of the next four months.
You can certainly appreciate the reasoning, it apparently wasn’t a popular product and drained valuable resources that could be used on products that actually turn a profit. Still many people are grieving the loss
of a beloved service, while others believe
with Google out…
