Google Base API Now in the JavaScript Client Library

Posted by Eric Bidelman, Google Data APIs Team

Today, we launched a new version of the JavaScript client library that includes the Google Base Data API.

The Base API is great for creating interesting JS mashups. With this new release, it's much easier to build gadgets, mashups and JS applications that reuse the content in Base. In addition, you can interact with your personal items feed to create, modify and delete existing items.

To get you started, we've published a new Interactive JavaScript Developer's Guide and created two samples that demonstrate the library's capabilities:

Base Items Mapper
A read-write mashup that lets users update their geocoded Base items using the Google Maps API.

Jobs Finder from Google Base
An iGoogle gadget that returns a list of nearby jobs. The listings are catered to the user's search preferences.
