As part of the Yahoo! Social Platform, we are offering a set of SDKs that provide easy access to the Yahoo! Social and Data APIs. All of the Yahoo! Social SDks come with functional examples and documentation. The SDK makes it easy for developers to: authenticate with OAuth, fetch user profiles and connections, fetch and insert updates, and execute YQL queries.
Before you begin, we need to let you know that SDK code and samples are provided free of charge, subject to the Yahoo! Social SDK License, unless otherwise noted.
To get started, you'll need to set up an application in order to obtain an application ID and OAuth consumer key and secret.
Easily add social capabilities to your website or web application using the PHP 5 SDK.
Easily add social capabilities to your website or web application using the Python SDK.
Easily add social capabilities to your website or web application using the Java SDK.
Integrate the Social APIs with your Flash, Flex and AIR applications using the Actionscript 3 SDK.
The Yahoo! Social APIs for Cocoa is a framework for easily integrating social interactions in your Mac and iPhone applications.
OpenSocial defines a common API for social applications across multiple websites. Write your Open Applications using OpenSocial APIs to tap into the social data of potentially millions of Yahoo! users. Source code, complete documentation and examples are provided on the OpenSocial web site.

If we do not offer the SDK you are looking for, you can develop one using any of the pre-existing OAuth libraries. If you let us know about it and we like it, we may feature it on this page.
