Rainmaker is a service that allows users to enhance their Google Contacts by retrieving public social information about their contacts. Not only does Rainmaker enhance Google Contacts, it also allows users to manage their contacts from the Rainmaker interface; any changes made to contacts in Rainmaker will be reflected in the user's Google Contacts.
Rainmaker also has a RESTful API that developers can use to integrate Rainmaker into their own creations. The API takes an email address as a parameter and returns available public data about the address, including social profile data, in JSON or XML format.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
