The Datamuse API is used to integrate a word-finding query engine. It can be used in apps for programmatic access to Datamuse's websites, including OneLook, and Rhymezone. OneLook is a dictionary search application, and Rhymezone is used to find rhymes, and synonyms. It features autocomplete on text input fields, search relevancy ranking, assistive writing applications, and word games. Use the API in apps to query words that match constraints like meaning, spelling, sound, and vocabulary. This API returns data in JSON format.
With all the changes in technology in the last half-century, a main form of communication remains relevant: the written or spoken word. Developers wishing to add word functions to applications should check out this list of the ten most popular Words APIs in the ProgrammableWeb API directory.
Fifteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Genetics, Japanese, Astronomy, and Patents. Highlights today include several APIs for Japanese search engine Goo, and an API for accessing near-earth objects data from NASA. Here's a rundown of what's new.
