This is a Ruby library to access the Zillow API created by Matthew Vince. API capabilities can access real estate and mortgage data. Home valuation, property details, neighborhood data, and mortgage calculators are some of the features that can create members' mini real estate portals. Ruby language has the potential to facilitate such personalized experience in mobile and desktop apps.
Back in May I wrote about the race for either unified APIs or API standards to bridge the growing number of APIs in specific industries or areas. Unified APIs are created by a third party provider to bridge multiple APIs, while API standards would potentially create an industry-wide standard of how APIs should operate.
