This is the part two of a three-part series covering KPIs for APIs, based on John Musser's presentation at the Business of APIs Conference. This post covers developer funnels and potential KPIs, measuring the app ecosystem, and how developer experience can make or break your API.
Fhoster's Livebase API is a built-in REST API supporting HTML5, JSON and XML that allows users to create databases in cloud. Details on the API guide you through 5 steps. First is accessing a cloudlet. Fhoster defines a cloudlet as "A small piece of cloud just for you. It contains a dedicated MySQL database and everything you need to execute your models." The second step is accessing an application within the Cloudlet. Third is access a class within the application. Fourth is retrieving a structured object.
