High fives to our open source community

by Sunir on August 14/2009

In 2007, we released the public FreshBooks API to give our customers a richer experience with their own data. We are extremely fortunate that many talented developers are FreshBooks customers and partners, some of whom have volunteered to build and maintain open source projects built on our API. The very least we can do is give them a hat tip to thank them, for no other reason than it is long overdue.

If you’re interested in working with the FreshBooks API, you may be interested in looking into some of these fantastic projects.

FreshBooks Applications

FreshBooks also tries to release the integrations we build or contract out as open source if we can. Here are a few.

If you ever forget where to find these, we will continue to maintain this as part of the list of Sample Code which you can find on the FreshBooks Developers website.

If I missed anyone, please let me know and I will update the list.
