Mashape Public Launch. Now open to every Developer and API.

Hello Mashapers,

We’re super excited to announce that we’re now officially open to public for every API and developer in the world. We’re now powering more than 400 APIs and thousands of developers are relying on Mashape APIs everyday. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts and feedback in the coming weeks.

To be part of the movement, you can simply join us on Mashape.

We're open sign for public launch

Hacker note: for developers who were using the API (for face detection), we now have an amazing free replacment created by Lambda Labs –

Mashape has also launched some useful features in the last year!

For API providers:

  • ready-to-go billing system for their APIs with custom plans for private customers
  • ability to charge for specific objects (SMS, MB, calls, data points, etc)
  • auto-generated documentation and client libraries
  • issues system in case the API is malfunctioning
  • powerful distribution via a community of developers.

For API consumers:

  • unified place to consume multiple APIs
  • subscribe to any API using just a single credit card
  • consume APIs using just the Mashape Keys
  • analyze the usage of all APIs consumed through the consumer console

We have a lot of surprises in the pipeline and we’ll stay focused on improving the happiness and the experience of the Mashape community.
