Streaming Conversation Using The Disqus API Platform

After bench-marking APIs we’ve published to the API Gallery we go through each of the individual API paths and identify the ones that have the high potential for turning into real-time streams, for use in dashboards, mobile applications, training machine learning models, and other applications. After we’ve StreamRanked them, we publish to a special listing of APIs and make sure we profile individually here on the blog. Next on the list of valuable data APIs is the commenting and discussion Disqus API platform .

Disqus is an online discussion and commenting service for websites and online communities that uses a networked platform. The company’s platform includes various features, such as social integration, social networking, user profiles, spam and moderation tools, analytics, email notifications, and mobile commenting.
