Google continues to churn out releases to its platform-as-a-service Google App Engine API. Since the beginning of the year, there have been new releases every 4-6 weeks. The latest is out with focus on bringing parity between its Java and Python releases, a couple of new APIs that allow writing applications that monitor incoming live data and read/write files, and some task queue/cron updates.
The lemonwhale API comes as a two part REST API that features JSON: one public and one private, each with separate endpoints. The public one downloads public information about videos. The private API is for altering your videos, like changing the title, or creating a new live broadcast. Authentication is required for the private API.
