Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
First an API for cars, now there's one for the places that sell them. A new service from GOSO creates a standard interface to report real-time inventory and other car details. Any developer can now tap into this data and let users know where to find that blue Camry.
Stage of Life, loyalty marketing agency, has launched its Coupon API. The API pulls from the Stage of Life Merchant Network. The network includes hundreds of national brand merchant offers, coupons, and discounts. Access through the API gives developers the flexibility to enhance current loyalty programs, or build stand alone applications.
Consumer Notebook just launched their API at PyCon. The Consumer Notebook site allows users take products and add them to lists and grids. Lists, as you’d expect, allow you to group common products. For example, gift ideas for friends, or books you’d like to buy. Grids provide a way to rank and compare a set of similar products. Perfect for planning your next cell phone upgrade, or deciding which trampoline best fits your lifestyle. Consumer Notebook [is a] product comparison site that combines the best features of Open Comparison, Yelp, Consumer Reports, and Pinterest. The API is REST based, and provides data in JSON format. Currently the documentation only references read access to the principle resources: Users, Products, Lists, and Grids (a comparison of products).
