Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.
  • 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?

Yes. A list of libraries can be found here: http://stackapps.com/questions/288/list-of-libraries.

Someone suggested that link be placed in the side bar, but apparently no one with the juice to make it happen thinks that is a good idea.

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:

you wrote the only c++ client library. –  Sky Sanders Sep 12 '10 at 19:25
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
