Are you asking about programming libraries to interface
with the API, or about people using the API? In terms of
libraries, I list one in the API docs, but I don't know the
status of it. The API is just json objects, so it's
(supposed to be) straightforward to use.
In terms of people/companies, there are a couple that I
know about. An analytics firm does some sort of message
analysis on behalf of one of our enterprise customers using
the API. Another has built/is building a dashboard on top of
the API. I think there may be a couple more, but because I
don't require any sort of specific registration to use the
API, I don't really track it.
That answers the question sufficiently, thanks. I can totally see
designing the API for internal purposes but was curious as to what
external applications there might be.
