Rackspace took a lot of feedback in terms of its cloud API and we are seeing a fair amount of activity around it. Here are a few submissions to our cloud tools site and in GitHub that will make building other tools for our cloud a lot easier:
Compass Cloudfiles PHP API: Cloudfiles PHP API runs on the Zend Framework.
Elastic Rack: Java API for the Rackspace Cloud.
JClouds: Cloud storage interoperability API in Java.
RightScale Ruby Gems: Ruby client library with full programmatic access to Rackspace Cloud.
Ruby Cloud Files: Ruby API Library for Cloud Files.
LibCloud: a standard client library for many popular cloud providers, written in Python.
PHPRackCloud: PHP client library to use Rackspace CloudServer API from inside your PHP application.
Rackspace Cloud PHP library: PHP5 client library to talk to the Rackspace Cloud API.
I’m sure I’m missing some here, so we’d really appreciate it if you’d drop links to other APIs and client libraries in the comments of this post. You can also check out many other tools for the Rackspace Cloud at our GitHub account.
If you already have a tool that works with our API, feel free to submit it to our tools site by.
