The Stream API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of Stream with other applications and to create new applications. Some example API methods include adding and deleting activities, retrieving activities, and managing user information. Stream is an activity stream and newsfeed service. Activity streams and newsfeeds built with Stream can be implemented at scale.
Stream.io provides developers with tools for adding scalable feeds, activity streams, and chat functionality to their applications via the Stream API. The company has recently announced a new SDK that aims to streamline the addition/creation of chat functionality for iOS applications.
The company Stream announced recently that it has changed its core service language from Python to Go. The company uses Go for all performance intensive code, and it still uses Python where its programmers feel makes sense. Stream is an API for building, scaling, and personalizing activity streams.
Switching from one programming language to another can be a monumental step for any team. This past year, the team at Stream switched its primary programming language from Python to Go. Leaving Python behind was a big step for us, but using Go gives us advantages we couldn't ignore.
