Backpack API

I’ve been using Backpack for a few days to attempt to organise my life a bit better. It’s a very impressive service and I think I’m getting a bit more organised :)

And then this morning I see that they have now released a web services API so that you can access (and change) your Backpack pages programmatically. As an example of what you can do with this, take a look at the O’Reilly Radar books page and Rael’s explaination of how it’s built using the web services APIs provided by Backpage and Amazon.

Update: I’ve started work on a Perl wrapper for the API. There’s a Backpage page about my experiments.

Update 2: First version of Net::Backpack is now available. It only covers part of the API, but more will be added soon.
