Wrappers for Pingdom’s new REST API
As you may know, we recently launched a new Pingdom API. It’s a powerful, easy-to-use REST API that lets you do anything from accessing your Pingdom monitoring history (for example for constructing charts, etc.), check the current status of your websites, add new monitoring, edit contacts, set up notifications, etc.
Basically anything you can do from within Pingdom’s control panel, you can do via the API. We encourage you to check it out if you haven’t already (we suggest you start here).
The new API has been very well received, and it didn’t take long before third-party wrappers started to show up for various languages, created by enthusiastic users.
Needless to say, we think this is great.
If you’re interested in using these wrappers, or maybe even contributing to their development, you can check them out on Github:

Did we miss any wrappers? Are you working on one? Let us know in the comments.
P.S. We should point out that these are unofficial wrappers created by third parties and not directly affiliated with Pingdom. But don’t let that stop you contributing or using them. This is a perfect thing for open source.
