Daily API RoundUp: Barchart OnDemand, Tviso, Brightcove, JotForm

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or source code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb’s directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there’s a listing in one of our directories that you’d like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

We’ve added 6 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in categories such as Entertainment, Stocks, and Monitoring. Also added were client libraries for JotForm, Linode Manager, and TextMagic.

APIs

Tviso is a social media tool that helps users select and organize their own viewing schedule. Tviso provides a database of entertainment video content and related metadata. Data categories include activity streams, ratings, reviews, actors, movies, TV shows, on-demand offers, and live TV streams. The Tviso REST API allows developers to retrieve show and movie information, manage comments, generate recommendations for shows and users, and get lists of media.

We’ve listed the Tviso API under the Entertainment category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Entertainment APIs.

Brightcove is a platform that helps enterprises distribute video on the web. The Brightcove Videocloud Media API allows interaction with the functions of video, cloud, and media in REST protocol. Use an API Token for access and get guides for transcription from remote assets, embedding video, and creating videos with remote assets. We’ve primarily categorized the API under the Video category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Video APIs.

API Science provides monitoring and testing services for APIs. The company recently launched a RAML import capability that allows monitors to be created by importing any RAML definition. The API Science REST API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of API Science with other applications and APIs. API methods include managing API monitors, retrieving monitor information, and retrieving and managing reports. This API is listed under the Monitoring category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Monitoring APIs.

Barchart OnDemand Free Market Data provides data for BATS (U.S. equities) and global Forex pairs, as well as end-of-day market data for U.S. equities from AMEX, NASDAQ, NYSE, and futures from CBOT, CME, COMEX, and NYMEX. The Free Market Data REST API allows developers to access and integrate the data with other applications. The primary category for this API is Stocks. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Stocks APIs.

OptionsCity Software is a provider of electronic trading solutions for futures and options traders. The OptionsCity API provides financial implementation to trading-based applications. This API only supports JSON responses. Developers need to set up an account to access cloud services. We’ve primarily categorized the API under the Financial category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Financial APIs.

Aplos offers its integrated accounting products to churches and nonprofit organizations. The Aplos API provides accounting solutions for nonprofit organizations. It returns information in JSON format. It offers an integrated set of web services, such as contribution management and fund accounting. We’ve listed the Aplos API under the Accounting category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Accounting APIs.

Clients

The Linode API lets users programmatically manipulate Linode Manager for virtual hosting. Features provided include provisioning, statistics, reboots, and deploying. The Linode PHP Library by Artem Rodygin allows developers to integrate the Linode API into their PHP applications. This library requires PHP 5.2.0+.

The TextMagic API is a web-based text messaging solution for businesses. TextMagic’s Email to SMS Service lets users send and receive text messages via email. The TextMagic CodeIgniter Library by Bo-Yi Wu allows developers to integrate the TextMagic API into applications made with CodeIgniter, a PHP framework.

JotForm is an online form builder that allows users to create and manage customized forms for websites without having to code them. The JotForm API allows developers to integrate the service, manage forms, manage form data, and view reports. Several official client libraries for use with the API have been added to the library. They are detailed here:

  • JotForm Ruby Library is an official library that allows developers to integrate the JotForm API’s methods into their Ruby applications.
  • JotForm C# Library allows developers to integrate the JotForm API’s methods into their C# applications.
  • JotForm iOS Library is the official library that allows developers to integrate the JotForm API’s methods into their iOS applications written in Objective-C.
  • JotForm Node.js Library is an official library that allows developers to integrate the JotForm API’s methods into their Node.js applications.
  • JotForm Android Library allows developers to integrate the JotForm API’s methods into their Android applications written in Java.
  • JotForm Go Library lets developers integrate the JotForm API’s methods into their Go applications.
  • JotForm Java Library allows developers to integrate the JotForm API’s methods into their Java applications.
  • JotForm Scala Library allows developers to integrate the JotForm API’s methods using Scala.
  • JotForm Python lets developers integrate the JotForm API’s methods using Python.
  • JotForm PHP Library allows developers to integrate the JotForm API’s methods into their PHP applications.

Awesome! ProgrammableWeb is doing a great job with these amazing APIs. Recetnly I used Jotforms for getting registerations for my event. I was really pleased with the interface of jotform. It got my work done in minutes. Very user friendly interface. Jotform also provides lots of quick tools, data validation, payment gateway solutions, and even an allows forms to submitted encrypted. Forms can be easily updated anytime without hassles. All these features for free!

Great work! Kudos to the Jotforms team!
