The Ajax APIs Playground with Save & Export Features

Posted · Category: Code, License Free

Sometimes, documentation isn’t always enough to learn about APIs. We need examples that I can play with. That’s why Ben Lisbakken released AJAX API Playground for teaching developers how to use Google’s JavaScript APIs.

The AJAX APIs Playground is currently loaded with over 170 samples for 8 Google JavaScript APIs (Maps, Search, Feeds, Calendar, Visualization, Language, Blogger, Libraries and Earth) that you can edit and run to help you explore what Google’s APIs have to offer.

There are also save and export features. The save feature allows you to hold onto an edited sample so you can continue working on it later, while export lets you modify a sample and publish the code to a permanent url.

    Ben rocks! I’m trying to convince him to create a Google Movies Search API, but it still needs more supporters :)

    Support it here:

    Thanks people! :D

    Very useful.. specially the calendar, I never thought that I could retrieve data that way :)


  • Ive always wanted to try one of Googles’ API, now I now where and how to start.

    I’ll have to look for a worthwhile application for these APIs.

    Thanks again.
