Mashape vs ProgrammableWeb: What are the differences?

Mashape: Open Source API Platform for a Cloud Native World. Kong is a scalable, open source API Layer (also known as an API Gateway, or API Middleware). Kong controls layer 4 and 7 traffic and is extended through Plugins, which provide extra functionality and services beyond the core platform; ProgrammableWeb: API directory and community. ProgrammableWeb is more than a directory and community, it's programmable. Our "API for APIs" gives you a simple and structured way to access the powerful registry and repository capabilities of PW. Use your favorite language to search and retrieve APIs, mashups, and other data from our catalog. We've got samples in PHP, Java, .NET and JavaScript to get you started.

Mashape and ProgrammableWeb can be categorized as "API Hub and Management" tools.

Some of the features offered by Mashape are:

  • Logging: Log requests and responses to your system over TCP, UDP or to disk
  • OAuth2.0: Add easily an OAuth2.0 authentication to your APIs
