  • I wanted to develop a SO app, and I have no prior web programming experience.

  • I know C, C++ and a bit of Perl.

Is there an wrapper for the API in one of these languages? If not, what do you suggest?

For the record, I thought it was a great idea. – Nathan Osman Sep 12 '10 at 19:00
Yes, it should be definitely there in the side bar, would have saved me a day. – Lazer Sep 12 '10 at 19:20

I wrote a C++ wrapper. You can find details about it here:

One doubt - Once I am able to fetch the results using your API, how do I convert the thing into an "app" can can be used from a browser? – Lazer Sep 12 '10 at 20:06
@Lazer: I'm afraid that I don't understand what you're trying to do. – Nathan Osman Sep 12 '10 at 20:11
Please ignore my comment for now. I'll try things out. – Lazer Sep 13 '10 at 14:54
