TeamLab: Benefit from Web Integration with REST API

Dear tech-savvy users!

We are glad to inform you that TeamLab launches the application programming interface (API).

From now on you will be able to:

  • import and export necessary data,
  • build applications on top of TeamLab
  • integrate TeamLab tools into existing programs and services
  • create javascript widgets.

Implemented as the representational state transfer (REST) architecture over the HTTP protocol, TeamLab API processes the standard requests with the GET/POST/PUT/DELETE commands and supports JSON/XML data formats. All the module elements, like posts or comments, have their own URLs and can be requested separately allowing users a flexible choice of features for integration depending on their needs.

Along with that the quick access to larger amounts of data is also possible. If an application needs the ability to retrieve data and make changes to several objects at once, TeamLab API provides a batching option to submit instructions for several operations in a single HTTP request.

To get use of TeamLab API, please go to http://api.teamlab.com

    I would be really interested if some of those clever people out there could give some examples of api’s that they are going to build. How can we use this tool? And will there be some sort of app market where we can select apps to plug in to Teamlab?

    Thanks guys, this really sounds like a great feature!

      An apps market sounds awesome if that happens! In the mean time, if anyone does anything clever with sharing/synching contacts between TeamLab and Maipchimp that they’d be prepared to share/discuss please get in touch!
      Thanks

    Will this eventually be implemented in the open-source version also?
