Step-by-step guide to authenticate with the SME API using Python

SME multi cloud storage API updated to version 0.7

We have updated our multi cloud storage API manual to version 0.7. Our multi-cloud API provides a single rest based interface to access over 10 cloud providers including Amazon S3, Microsoft SkyDrive, RackSpace Cloud Files, Mobile Me, Box.net + more.


This update has now had more detailed examples added as to the request and response of each of the API functions.


All our client tools are built on this API, as is our forthcoming iPhone application which should be in the App store in January.


In January, as well as this REST based API, we will be putting on Google Code a complete library of .Net classes that provide the same API functionality but in C#.We will also release the Objective C libraries used to build the iPhone application at a later date.
