The last 1,000 APIs in our directory were added in the shortest time ever. It was just over three months ago that we reached the 5,000 API milestone. What’s new? The trends are actually getting harder to spot, like trying to explain the difference in the weather between now and five minutes ago. Previous trends, such as social and mobile are certainly continuing. And business uses of APIs are increasing, both in terms of those listed in the directory and our discussions with developers and providers.
We now list over 5,400 APIs and 6,500 mashups in our directory. It would not have been possible to reach this point without the wonderful sponsors that made it all possible. We’re pleased to offer you this chance to learn more about the companies that help us make our site the resource that it is.

Our API directory has hit another major milestone. We now list 5,000 APIs, just a short four months since passing 4,000. No longer is the web simply about links connecting one site to another. Instead, developers are using tools to connect data and functionality from one site to another site. It’s an incredible transformation that has happened over a very short period of time. APIs are at the heart of Google’s strategy and they led directly to the growth enjoyed by Twitter and Facebook.
As we put a bow on 2011 and welcome 2012, it’s a good time to reflect on what has been a year of tremendous growth for ProgrammableWeb. We now list over 4,700 APIs and 6,300 mashups in our directory. Our team continues to grow in order to bring you all of this new content along with the latest news and trends about the web as a platform. All of this is made possible by our sponsors and partners. We take this time to say thank you and offer you this chance to learn more about the companies that make our site possible.

Today we’re marking another milestone in our API directory: we now list 4,000 of them. It’s only been six months since we toasted the 3,000th. And, as we’ve said before, the site ended its first year, 2005, listing only 105 APIs. The whole web as a platform has come a long way and done so very quickly. There are some areas, such as social, which are incredibly popular. There’s also a lot of room for expansion, as industries like travel and retail have yet to fully embrace APIs. How soon will we mark the 5,000th?
The fall issue of GOOD uses data from our quickly-expanding API directory to show its growth over time, including some important APIs along the way. In the same infographic (below), you can also see promenant open government data initiatives from around the world.
This week we saw the ProgrammableWeb mashup directory pass the 6000 mark. Maps, specifically Google Maps, maintain the largest percentage of mashups as has been the case since we started six years ago. However in a continuing trend from the last couple of years, social mashups have steadily increased in popularity. They now comprise 9% of the directory making them the third largest type of mashup represented.
