inkdroid » Blog Archive » APIs Suck

One thing that bubbled up at code4lib2009 last week was the notion that APIs Suck. Not that web2.0 APIs are wrong or bad…they’re actually great, especially when compared to a world where no machine access to the data existed before. The point is that sometimes just having access to the raw data in the ‘lowest level format’ is the ideal. Rather than service providers trying to guess what you are trying to do with their data, and absorbing the computational responsibility of delivering it, why not make the data readily available using a protocol like HTTP? Put the data in a directory, turn on Indexes, do some sensible caching, and maybe gzip compression and let people grab it, and robots to crawl it. Or maybe use something like Amazon Public Datasets. It seems like a relatively easy first step, that involves very little custom software development, and one with the ability make a huge impact. - for all your unAPI needs

Safe C String Library v1.0.3 (January 30, 2005)

The goal of the SafeStr library is to provide a rich string-handling library for C that has safe semantics yet interoperates with legacy library code in a straightforward manner. Additionally, porting code that uses standard C string handling should be straightforward. The library should work on all modern Unix-like platforms, as well as any 32-bit Microsoft Windows OS. The overt security goals of the library are as follows: 1. Buffer overflows should not be possible when using the API. 2. Format string problems should be impossible when using the API. 3. The API should be capable of tracking whether strings are "trusted", a la Perl's taint mode. The API is meant to provide rich functionality and be easy to use, all the while improving security.

by 1 other (via)
The AJAX Libraries API is an attempt to make Web applications faster for developers in simple ways: * Developers won't have to worry about getting caching setup correctly, as we will do that for you * If another application uses the same library (much more likely), they there is a much better chance that it will be already caching on the users machine * The network and bandwidth of the users systems will not be taxed.
