The Country API returns basic information on all of the countries in the world. Available information includes the country's name, native name, native language, numeric code, alpha 2 code, alpha 3 code, region, sub-region, latitude, longitude, area, currency name, currency code, currency symbol, and flag. This API is completely free and open-source and doesn't require any form of authentication. The service is always available, and there are no request limits.
Seventeen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Payments, Banking and Internet Of Things. Highlights today include the MuHu API for real time vehicle fleet data and the Bark API for keeping children safe while they use the internet. Here's a look what is new.
