MineTools is a collection of APIs for interacting with Minecraft servers programmatically. The Server-Ping API can retrieve a server's version, favicon, MOTD, and online players. The Server-Query API allows developers to retrieve the names of all online players and the installed plugins. The UUID API allows developers to retrieve a user's UUID. The Favicon API allows developers to display the favicon of a Minecraft server.
Ten APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Translation, Banking, Games, and Science. Also new to the directory are SDKs for Gmail, Sunlight Foundation, Strossle, and Facebook Graph APIs. Here's a rundown of the latest additions and how developers can use them.
