I’m excited to publicly share the API documents for much of the Yahoo! Open Strategy (Y!OS). Y!OS is a platform at it’s core, accessible via an API layer by applications that can be built by anyone and run on or off of Yahoo!. We’re using Y!OS to completely rewire Yahoo!, putting an open architecture at Yahoo!’s core and adding a horizontal social dimension across Yahoo! and beyond.
We previewed many of the interfaces for these APIs (as well as the Yahoo! Application Platform, which is the framework for deploying apps onto Yahoo! property pages) at Open Hack this past weekend on Yahoo! campus and got great feedback from participants. Now we’re publishing the API docs publicly. The interfaces will follow soon enough!
If you have feedback, questions or comments on the docs below, please check out our new YDN Forum for Y!OS.

Enjoy! More coming soon…
