Pinterest is essentially a virtual pinboard where users can post and share images, which are referred to as "pins." It can be used to collect recipes, project ideas, clothing items, vacation destinations, and pretty much anything else found online.
This unofficial API was developed at a time when Pinterest lacked their own API, circa June 2012. It has recently run into some difficulties since Pinterest made changes to their backend, but it is still capable of retrieving pins via REST calls.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
