Of the many APIs we published this week, six were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those six, which include the Hackpad API. Hackpad is a collaborative tool that allows groups of people to edit a document in real time. The API simply makes this functionality available for developers to integrate into their apps or websites. Offering a similar interface to that of Google Docs, Hackpad allows users to login to the service through their Google, email, and Facebook credentials. To learn more about the Hackpad API visit the Hackpad site as well as the Hackpad API blog post.
The new Contentful API seeks to disrupt current content management workflows with an API-first approach. The API service uses a presentation agnostic platform to allow content to be distributed across any device or application. Built from the knowledge and experience gained when Contentful founders managed StorageRoom – a platform used by over 1,000 international customers to push content to applications – the new Contentful has taken the lessons learned to create a wholly new content management system.
Here at ProgrammableWeb our team constantly comes across a lot of great APIs. With 54 new APIs being added to our directory last week, many can get lost in the shuffle. Our staff took a moment to highlight the APIs that stood out to them most last week.
