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 Cloudera Developer Kit. This kit will help developers build applications in Hadoop environments by providing them with API tools and reducing the barriers to entry. Meaning the rather expensive environment will be more open due to efficiency tips and tools provided by the CDK. To learn more about what exactly the Cloudera developer kit does, visit the Cloudera site as well as the Cloudera API blog post.
For music fans who enjoy listening to playlists on their laptops or desktops, Tomahawk is a music player with a few extra bells and whistles that may be of some interest. It's an open-source, cross-platform music player, which means it enables a user to play music stored on their own hard drives as well as from a variety of other music sources like Spotify, SoundCloud, YouTube and more. The Toma.hk API makes this functionality available to developers or users to add songs to websites.
