Introducing the Mem API

Build custom Inflows for Mem

Yesterday, we launched the Mem API into public alpha.

The Mem API is a way for people to develop integrations and flows for Mem. It's currently geared toward software developers, but over time, we aim to make it possible for anyone to use tools like Zapier to build an integration without writing any code.

A‍t its core, the Mem API will enable a variety of information—text messages, sound clips, videos, contacts, projects, emails, documents, tasks, calendar events, you name it—to flow into and out of your Mem knowledge graph: the place where your information is connected, contextualized, and automatically structured into an intelligent, assistive database.

If you're interested in the story behind API and our future plans, check out the Introducing the Mem API blog post.

If you're a software developer and just want to get started building with the API, read on...

Get building with the API today

We're excited to see what inflows begin to get built on the Mem API. Getting started is as simple as one line of code:

await memClient.createMem({ content: "Hello world." });

We've also compiled some ideas for Inflows to build that we know the Mem community would love to use:

  • One-time import flows — e.g. From Evernote, From Markdown files, From Google Docs, From Notion, From Confluence

  • Continuous, passive sync flows — e.g. Your bike rides from Strava, Your favorited recipes from AllRecipes

  • Active inflows — e.g. Email into Mem, Readwise into Mem, Slack into Mem

To dive right in, head on over to https://docs.mem.ai, and tweet us at @memdotai to share your ideas, progress toward building your first inflow, or feedback on the future of the API.


We also have some exciting in-product updates to Search & Inbox on the way. Stay tuned!
