Daily API RoundUp: w3af, Qlik, Neura, Onename, Uber Libraries

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 Predictions, Verification, and Framework categories, among others. Also added: some client libraries for use with Uber and MusicBrainz APIs.

APIs

Apply Magic Sauce (AMS) is a service that predicts users’ psycho-demographic traits based on Facebook “likes” data. Traits predicted by the AMS Prediction API include religious affiliation, relationship status, political view, life satisfaction, intelligence, and more.

We’ve primarily categorized the AMS Prediction API under the Predictions category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Predictions APIs.

Kickbox is a service that focuses on real-time email verification to ensure accurate information is collected by organizations. With the Kickbox API, developers can integrate email address verification into their own applications. We’ve listed the Kickbox API under the Verification category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Verification APIs.

The w3af API allows developers to access w3af, an open source framework that was designed to help secure web apps by finding and exploiting all vulnerabilities. The w3af framework was developed using Python and is licensed under GPLv2.0. We’ve categorized the w3af API under the Framework category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Framework APIs.

Qlik Analytics Platform provides visual data analytics services that are interactive. With the Qlik Sense APIs users can: Integrate Qlik Sense into web or .NET applications; add visualizations and data sources; manage licensing, users, and Qlik Sense server tasks programmatically.

The Qlik Sense API is listed under the Visualizations category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Visualizations APIs.

Onename offers identity passcards to browse the web and receive bitcoin. Bitcoin can be sent to users who’ve displayed the passcard on Twitter, embedded it in a blog, or linked it in an email signature. Users can share contact info privately, and use stealth addresses for private payments. Search for users with the Onename API. This API is categorized under Identity. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Identity APIs.

Neura is an Internet of Things (IoT) service that aims to improve engagement with users’ communications and increase security with home automation. Neura can keep applications and devices connected to a user’s activities. With the API, developers can get health and wellness information, add push notifications, and authenticate a user. We’ve primarily categorized the Neura API under the Internet of Things category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Internet of Things APIs.

Clients

Uber is a service that connects users to drivers through a mobile application. Uber provides an API for application integration. Some independent developers have provided client libraries for use with the Uber API.

Uber Java SDK created by Apimatic in New Zealand helps developers to configure, build, and use Java language to construct Android applications that work with the Uber API.

Uber iOS SDK by Tom Jowett uses the Mantle framework for JSON, along with AFNetworking to allow developers to build applications for iPhone 6.

The MusicBrainz database contains a huge amount of music metadata, which is maintained by the MusicBrainz community. Use the MusicBrainz API to find information about artists, albums, tracks, and labels. The company provides various client libraries for use with the API.

MusicBrainz Python Library allows developers to get easier access to the MusicBrainz database using the XML web service.

MusicBrainz (libmusicbrainz) C/C++ Library: Using this library, developers can add MusicBrainz look-up capabilities to their applications.

MusicBrainz C Library can assist developers in creating MusicBrainz disc IDs and freedbs from audio CDs.

MusicBrainz C/C++ Library: with this library, developers can add cover art capabilities to their applications.
