Public API

Stan Bright @StanBright

I'd like to announce that SaaSHub has a simple public API now. There are two endpoints as of now. In general, that should be sufficient for some basic integrations; however, the API could be extended in the future.

The API is free and, all you need is a SaaSHub user account.

In essence, you can get all the alternatives to a given product through a simple GET query

You can find the relevant docs here

If you decide to use the API and need any help or have an idea how to improve it, please don't hesitate to ping me. Thanks!

    What was the reasoning putting your api key passed in via a query parameter instead of headers?

      It's a touch easier.

    Congrats! Did you find any gotchas when building a public API?

      I wouldn't say. Given that I already have an "internal API" used for some of UI functionality and that the backend is in Ruby on Rails - it was straightforward. A few hours job.
