What are Tools for Mashups?

John Musser, January 17th, 2007

Mashup Camp 3 kicked-off today here at MIT in Cambridge (a two day event follows on the heels of the Mashup University earlier in the week). One of the first sessions was Mashup Dev Tools, a discussion lead by Dave Nielsen of StrikeIron. It was a very interesting discussion where one of the primary challenges was the breadth of what “mashup tools” means: is it for developers, non-IT end users (client-side), middleware services (server-side), code libraries, data scraping, ajax frameworks, widget platforms, or other? Dion Hinchcliffe covered 8 of them last year. As the sampling below shows there’s a wide variety of things that could be considered mashup development tools.

There are certainly more so feel free to add other examples in the comments.

Atlas is another example. It’s a mapping tool for publishers that we (Faneuil Media) just launched.

I missed the first day of Mashup Camp, but will be there tomorrow …

While the artifacts are not yet available to the public, our research project dubbed “WIPER” and “JDA” may be of some interest. You can view video demonstrations at http://foundry.maya.com/jda/

Synthasite is another great example of a widget enabling platform. The launch version of Synthasite will effectively be a Web Development Environment, catering to Widgets, Mashups, Plugins, API’s and the like.

I am sorry we (Teqlo) couldn’t make it to mashup camp. We are in the process of wrapping up our Alpha3 release and all hands on deck are focused on this one objective. We would look forward to the opportunity to participate in a future event, and at that time we will certainly have some hands-on stuff to make available.

[...] Mashup Camp 3 at MIT in Boston wrapped-up yesterday. It was another well organized, well attended, very successful event organized by David Berlind and Doug Gold. The week began with two days of Mashup University. Lots of good, interesting discussions, some of which we’ve covered here: What Are Tools for Mashups?, and Making Money from Mashups. But there’s a lot of other good coverage of the event out there: [...]

What are Tools for Mashups?
Our favorite tool to create mashups is a visual software called iMacros: I love it because I can create mashups visually and use any programming or scripting language to process the data. Compared to the Perl scripts that we used before, imacros makes it very easy to extract data from complicated websites like salesforce.com or all the travel sites.
