What could you do if you were spidering two billion web pages per day? Whatever your answer is to that hypothetical, you might as well do it now. The 80legs platform lets you write your own web crawler and sell your apps to users (our 80legs API profile). And if you can build it fast, there's an 80legs contest looking for your entry.
Our API directory now includes 46 research APIs. The newest is the Globus Online Transfer API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the Mendeley API. We list 3 Mendeley mashups. Below you'll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of research APIs.
When it comes to mashups submitted to our directory, those helping users search for and discover new music consistently rank among the most popular. The number and variety of music services including metadata, social and streaming continues to grow and give developers more tools with which to build their apps. The list below includes some of the recent mashups of note.
