Greddit is a wrapper for the Reddit API written in Groovy. With this wrapper, the OAuth function can be implemented. Greddit uses a request scheduler for asynchronous calls and to allow the library to enforce a two-calls-per-second limit, which can be disabled. Authored by Steven Smith, documentation can be found on GitHub.
Three months after its initial launch, much-talked-about data portability service Gnip has released version 2.0 of its API, as well as the first glimpse of a business model. As we covered back in March, Gnip's goal is to "connect Data Consumers to Data Publishers in a low-latency, highly-scalable standards-based way." Gnip is a sort of proxy that makes data from diverse Publishers--services like Delicious or Twitter, which create activity content--available in a unified format, and notifies Consumers--like FriendFeed or Plaxo--via a push interface when new data is available. The new version of the API adds full data delivery, XMPP support, and advanced data filtering.
