, the king of open-source API management platforms, is in my (totally not biased) opinion an extremely cool tool.
From startups to enterprises, companies have tons of APIs (growth of APIs
within Mashape) and they need to be managed in a simple and effective way.

instead of the boring stuff.
Microservices just like sushi
When I was explaining microservices to my cousin, and why they’re cool, I told him to imagine microservices like awesome…
We’re happy to announce that the Unirest library for .NET
and RT (“windows 8”) has been merged! This was possible thanks to Lionel Ringenbach’s
Lionel is a C#/XAML developer based in Switzerland. He enjoys developing for Microsoft platforms (mobile, tablets, desktop). He loved to code because “it is the most creative tool that has been given to me – you think, create, and make everyday a better day!”
We’ve asked him to write the post below. Enjoy!
The Unirest HTTP request library was ported sometime back for the classic .NET platform and WinRT. They were packaged in 2…
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

Yesterday, we released our newest open-sourced project, which we named Unicorn. Unfortunately, that was also the name of two existing open sourced projects. We really dropped the ball, and have been working hard to clean up the mess. Our apologies to anyone in the Ruby or Python community who was confused or pissed off. Hopefully you can look past our mistake and see the value in this project.
Since yesterday, we have decided on a new name, Unirest, which we think is a great fit for the project. We also made a new website
, changed out all the…

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…
UPDATE (Oct 28, 2013): The post below is already outdated. To consume Mashape APIs through node.js, we recommend that you use Unirest for node.js
UPDATE (Feb 27, 2013): Please note that we have improved the way authentication keys are handled in Mashape. The header value below will be replaced by either the new Testing or Production Keys. Read this post to learn more.
Hi guys, here’s a short example on how you can call APIs in Mashape through Node.js / REST. It’s pretty straightforward. You just need to remember that you need to make a secure call using https://,…
