Today we're excited to announce the API for Zoho Projects where any developer can extend the project management and collaboration capabilities through our APIs and can build their own customized applications for their business needs.
We've tried to make the API follow the REST (Representational State Transfer) principles and generate a XML/ JSON object which allows you to access / read / write Zoho Projects data from third-party systems like Google/Yahoo gadgets, web sites, billing & invoicing systems, other web-based products and do much more.
How can you access and use this API ?It's simple. To help you get started with Zoho Projects APIs

Typically this opens up a new chapter for Zoho Projects, and it’s just a start. Zoho Projects API is new and primarily for developers whose imagination is the limit. With this you will be able to build a customized CRM system with Projects, billing systems, document management, time tracking tools and other web-based products.
