Last night I went through 25 of the top Application Programming Interfaces (API), and documented what type of services they offer as part of their API Ecoystem. I’m trying to get a handle on best approaches to delivering an API. I’m still processing this information but so far I have these API Ecosystem building blocks:
Account / Developer Related
API / Code / Applications
|Resources / Informational
Other Tools / Not Categorized
This list represents most of the tools provided to partners, developers and API consumers through existing top APIs. It is interesting to see how different players approach this area of their business. Some its their only business.
