This client acts as a Python library for 5 map-related Google APIs. Using the library, developers can create geocoding applications that consume the Google Directions API, Distance Matrix API, Elevation API, Geocoding API, and Time Zone API. The client is community supported, and requires Python 2.7 or later as well as a Google Maps API key for use.
Readme.io, a service that greatly simplifies the process of documenting technologies like APIs, is taking its popularity with API providers to the next level in a new offering called Build. Working off that tradition of simplicity, Build simplifies the design, provisioning and consumption of APIs.
We recently wrote about a post from CodePen.io that suggested a way of keeping API keys private when publicly sharing code samples. This time, we've gone back to that idea, given a try, and dogfooded it. We used JSBin to not only show how it works, we've embedded the "bin" in our tutorial.
