Finding APIs for your projects

If you want to start looking for APIs to use in your projects, I recommend you begin with these fantastic resources

  • Todd Motto’s list of public JSON APIs for use in web development is a perfect start
  • Abhishek Banthia’s Public APIs has an equally extensive list of APIs from round the web.
  • - an experimental API Search service to help discover APIs on the web.
  • - has a searchable categorized list of APIs on the web
  • You can also search ruby gems to find out if there’s a gem/library for ruby that makes it easy to interact with an API too.
