In this paper, we propose a novel approach to provide a comprehensive cross-repositories view of the available Web APIs information, in order to enhance effective multi-perspective Web APIs search for fast development of web mashups. The approach is based on Linked Data principles to identify and use semantic links across repositories for search purposes. Specifically, the paper considers Web APIs search across the popular ProgrammableWeb and Mashape repositories by combining their distinctive Web API descriptions.
