The Mates API was created to introduce and connect individuals based on the intersection of physical location and other properties they might have in common. Physical location is determined by either user input or statistical analysis. The current version of the Mates API is geared towards academic settings and works to connect people based on course registration and academic interests. However, the publicly available source code means that Mates could easily be tweaked to fit other situations.
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.
