In the era of cloud computing there are numerous Platforms as a Service (PaaS) that allow developers to integrate with existing, thriving ecosystems like Facebook or Salesforce. While planning code related building blocks consider these platforms, and the possibility of providing platform specific development kits.
Every API that deploys will suffer from a lack of developers. Building Platform Development Kits (PDK) can help an API go from zero users to an active community of developers by embracing these existing providers. There are many different incarnations of these platforms, such as Facebook, Wordpress, Drupal, Salesforce and Heroku--spend the time and get to know which platforms may best suit your API.
