Ruby, PHP, Python
Of the many APIs we published this week, eleven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eleven, which include the Ribbet API. Ribbet is a photo-editing tool providing users with various different tools and filters. Along with these basic tools and filters comes more complex photo collage making functionalities. These include more extensive editing tools similar to that of Photoshop. The Ribbet API allows developers to integrate the Ribbet photo editing functionality into their websites. To learn more about the Ribbet API visit the Ribbet site as well as the Ribbet API blog post.
New updates to the UK Police API extend the possibility of using crime data to create innovative products and services. While many of the new mashups and services that could be created from using an extended, anonymized dataset of all crimes in the UK could have benefits for local citizens and businesses, there is also the risk that the data could be used to infringe on civil liberties.
