Given.to is a crowd gifting platform that allows users to create wishlists and invite friends and family to contribute towards items on that list. The Given.to API provides a RESTful interface for making automated purchases of digital content and for returning information regarding automated purchase requests. The API authenticates with OAuth, returns JSON formatted responses, and supports callbacks using webhooks.
Of the many APIs we published this week, eleven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eleven, which include the Ribbet API. Ribbet is a photo-editing tool providing users with various different tools and filters. Along with these basic tools and filters comes more complex photo collage making functionalities. These include more extensive editing tools similar to that of Photoshop. The Ribbet API allows developers to integrate the Ribbet photo editing functionality into their websites. To learn more about the Ribbet API visit the Ribbet site as well as the Ribbet API blog post.
You want to give a big gift, but you have little money. Or maybe you just have a lot of friends or family members eager to pile in on your great gift idea. Either way, as Colleen Taylor writes in Techchrunch, Given.to can help corral your crowd and manage the money.
