I'm powering my "Personal API" with encore. This has really opened up so many possibilites. I have micro-service style APIs for things like the blog, twitter, my email newsletter, a URL shortener and then some fun composite services that do things like auto-tweet new posts or send email notifications to subscribers of the blog for new articles. I'm just getting started, and I'm expecting that this will evolve rapidly into a really cool hub for all my digital world.
