The goal is to get you to navigate around Mashape in less clicks.  We heard your feedback, and made it faster for you to access your Inbox and Documentation in the header.  We also added a “visual cue” to access your Dashboard with the globe icon on the left, and moved the Add an API button to the right.  It’s also worth revisiting the user-related pages you can access when you click on your username.

The footer was also updated.  (Click here to view in fullscreen)

Mashape Updates Posted 3 years ago

Hey mashapers,

Since we’ve released Mashape, we’ve added new interesting features:

  • 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 interface that every component implements thanks to the server library, by auto-generating a super-easy PHP and Ruby client library for every component. This means that every developer can now easily consume a component natively in PHP or Ruby. Python and Java support is on the roadmap. To get started, take a look at the updated Guide.
  • A better JSON API
    The existing JSON API has been improved to return more standard responses. The error messages generated by Mashape are now standardized with the others, so that they can be handled nicely in your application.
  • Private messages
    You can now chat with other developers using the private messaging feature. You can ask them to add new features to their components, or to fix some bugs. Go to your Inbox to read messages.
  • Social user profiles
    Get more social by linking your Facebook, LinkedIn, GitHub and Twitter accounts to your Mashape profile, and stay connected with your developer friends.
  • Be a contributor
    Mashape has made a lot of improvements thanks to your feedbacks and your efforts. This has made us proud of our community, and this is why we’ve added a new Contributors page where are listed all the hackers that gave us a valuable feedback.

We’ve a full roadmap to make Mashape a better place in the following months. The next feature will be the billing, thus you’ll be able to sell the components to the community. Along with it we’re improving the component’s profile with a new Issues section to notify bugs or defects to the developer, and a component’s reputation that’s a rating that shows how reliable a component is.
