Thanksgiving is one of those times of the year when everyone naturally gets a little more retrospective. With that in mind now is as good a time as any to reflect on what developers should be thankful for in 2012. To that end, arguably the thing that made developers in the last year more productive than any time in recent memory was RESTful APIs. After all, the value of any application rises in almost direct proportion to the number of other applications it can be integrated with. RESTful APIs have made it easier to integrate applications than ever.
Of the many APIs we published this week, seventeen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those seventeen, which included the Anime News Network Encyclopedia API. The Anime News Network holds a database of over 14,000 titles, from over 10,000 companies. The API allows developers to request general reports and detailed information about anime titles, for up to 50 requests at a single time.
Nimble, a social CRM and SaaS provider, has just announced the launch of a new Contact API and App Marketplace making it possible for developers to create engaging third-party applications using the Nimble platform.
