This is the official Shopify Ruby Gem that allows developers to programmatically access the admin functionality of Shopify stores. Developers can create apps for themselves through their own admin access. All API usage happens through Shopify applications; shop owners can create applications for themselves through their own admin. Developers are given functionality across articles, assets, customers, events and more. The API uses a RESTful interface and responses are formatted in XML and JSON.
Prosperent (quickly growing ad network) and CloudFlare (content delivery network focused on low touch app launches) have announced a partnership aimed at quickly monetizing websites without complicated development work. The partnership is simple, seems obvious, and should intrigue developers across many markets. Most importantly, the partnership should create new ways for anybody/any company with an online presence to make money. Check out the PW profiles for the Prosperent API and the CloudFlare API.
Consumer Notebook just launched their API at PyCon. The Consumer Notebook site allows users take products and add them to lists and grids. Lists, as you’d expect, allow you to group common products. For example, gift ideas for friends, or books you’d like to buy. Grids provide a way to rank and compare a set of similar products. Perfect for planning your next cell phone upgrade, or deciding which trampoline best fits your lifestyle.
Consumer Notebook [is a] product comparison site that combines the best features of Open Comparison, Yelp, Consumer Reports, and Pinterest.
The API is REST based, and provides data in JSON format. Currently the documentation only references read access to the principle resources: Users, Products, Lists, and Grids (a comparison of products).
