Mashape: The API Marketplace
Mashape, which launches in private alpha today, is an API marketplace for developers and web app owners.
For people running a web app, Mashape gives away an API library so you can drop it into your app and instantly allow developers to begin building mashups with your service. The infrastructure is available for PHP now, and they’ll be adding Ruby soon.
For developers, Mashape helps pull together APIs and hold them in one spot. It’s easy to browse and find new capabilities to use. And since all of the web apps are already running the Mashape infrastructure, your Mashape API key works with every service. Give yourself more time to build an app and less time getting started.
Mashape is in private alpha, so use the invite code MINISPROUT when you register to jump to the head of the queue.
