A library should take an app key, not have an app key. Don't register it. Also, make absolutely sure your wrapper demands an app key at initialization. You don't want a user locked into the No Key request limit erroneously. If libraries had keys an application abusively using your library (through no fault of yours) could get every application that uses ...

Remember, you should only publicize your app if it can actually be used! I'm working on an idea for an app. In true "customer development" fashion, I'd like to publish the idea, with a screenshot of what it will look like, to see what kind of reaction it gets and what features people want it to have. It's not difficult to implement, but I'd rather ...

Historical Note StackList is no longer available - the features that made it an attractive supplement to listing your app here have found their way into Stack Apps itself. This answer remains for historical purposes. Don't forget to also publish your app on stacklist.quickmediasolutions.com (404 Not Found) The site is shaping into a nice ...

Here is my entry. It basically allows you to embed the open-source ads from Meta in your blog, etc. It is simply a .js file you can include on the page. My evaluation: Soapi.js is a very intuitive library for JavaScript. And by that, I mean the methods are laid out in a way that you would expect them to be. The whole thing is relatively self-documenting ...

No need, the "apps" tag pulls anything tagged "app" or "library" already. Alternately, just click library and browse all the libraries. (sorry, this change has been in for a while, we just hadn't deployed.)

StackOverflow.Net uses the technique you described of having the API calls return the object or list of objects you are interested in. For example, GetQuestions() returns a list of Question objects. So if you like to read C# check it out.

Honestly, I don't think it is a big enough deal to warrant all of this attention. I don't see why posting code samples should be Community Wiki, but if a Moderator believes that they should be, then that's fine. It was getting a bit annoying to see C# code samples posted all over the active question's page. I think a few is ok, but in my opinion, it was ...

As Jeff mentioned in the comment of my other answer, this information would be best put elsewhere... so... I have set up a MediaWiki installation for this here: http://stackoverflow.quickmediasolutions.com/wiki/ Update: The stackoverflow.quickmediasolutions.com subdomain appears to have been dead for a while. Here's what's left of the wiki at the Internet ...

Having earned some rep. from the "dev-tip" questions myself, I can honestly say that I probably would not have put in the effort knowing I would never get rep. from it. I think the CW-requirement needs to be relaxed :)
