The Chinese Text Project API provides developers with methods for integrating content and functionality of the CTP with other web-based, or web-aware sites and applications. The API consists of two main components: a plugin API which integrates external functionality into the CTP, and a JSON API which allows CTP functionality to be integrated into external sites. The Chinese Text Project is an open source digital library that makes pre-modern Chinese texts available globally to readers and researchers.
Fourteen APIs were added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Images, Networking, Games, Voice and Monetization. Featured today are three beta APIs for Microsoft's popular Halo video game. Here's a rundown of the latest additions and how developers can benefit.
