Mashape is the Cloud API Marketplace; where developers can easily consume Cloud APIs to integrate in their next project, and where existing APIs can be distributed to the community and monetized.
It's really easy to start using public API's on mashape, and we have made it even easier to power your next app with our Unirest project. Unirest is an open source library that does HTTP REST really well, ported to multiple languages. More languages will be coming soon (send us suggestions). Although we make use of Unirest to make HTTP requests here on Mashape, it can be used with any API.
If you already have an API we make it simple to distribute and monetize your API. Even better, you remain in complete control of your source code, server and pricing. Just by adding your API to mashape's marketplace you get instant exposure to our growing userbase and a search engine optimized profile page for your API. For free. We don't charge developers a dime unless they are utilizing our billing system and making money themselves.
Mashape APIs can be consumed using our own Unirest library, curl, or however else you want.
Add an API on Mashape, configure the cloud proxy, then keep it private or unleash it to the public.
