Single purpose API
Six APIs have been added to the directory today in Recommendations, Auto and Climate categories, among others. Also added: an SDK for use with CloudBoost database solutions.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the CoolClimate Calculator API. CoolClimate is a survey that allows users to answer various carbon footprint related questions to get an estimate on the tons of carbon they emit into the environment each year. The API gives developers the freedom to integrate this survey with third party apps. On top of emission estimates, the survey provides information on how to decrease carbon emissions. To learn more about the CoolClimate Calculator API visit the CoolClimate site as well as the CoolClimate API blog post.
The Coolclimate Calculator helps end users calculate their carbon footprint--and look at tools for reducing it. The API allows integration of the survey into third party apps.
