This week we had another 15 new APIs added to our API directory. This latest set includes an API for a single sign-on solution, an email marketing API, a video creation platform API, an API to transfer money over Facebook, and the service we wrote about earlier this week that to help you find mutual Twitter followers. Here are more details on each of these new APIs:

 OneLogin OneLogin API: The OneLogin API allows developers to interact with the OneLogin service which "provides an easy-to-use single sign-on solution for businesses that embrace cloud computing. OneLogin eliminates the need for employees to remember strong passwords and saves them time because they can log into applications with a single click." OneLogin's API supports five basic operations for each entity: read, list, create, update and delete. It uses RESTful protocol and responses are formatted in XML.

ActiveCampaign ActiveCampaign API: ActiveCampaign is a web based email marketing platform that allows you to send permission based mailings to lists of subscribers.

AnimotoAnimoto API: The Animoto Quickstart API enables the creation of Animoto video projects with content provided by partner websites and applications. With the Quickstart API, partners can send users to Animoto to create a new video, and specify images,video clips,and an audio track to be included in the new video.

BuxterBuxter API: The Buxter API allows Facebook application developers to use the Buxter transaction webservice to monetize their Facebook applications. Buxter is ClickandBuy's Facebook application. With Buxter, Facebook users can transfer money to each other, as well as purchase items in Facebook apps. Using the API, developers can securely create purchase links, query the status of transactions and cancel transactions.

IntersectIntersect API: Intersect is a Google Chrome extension that lets you see users who mutually follow you and another user on Twitter. The API uses a RESTful interface and responses are formatted in JSON. The simple API is documented on a GitHub repository and it is open source (MIT license), so you could run your own version of the service.
