OpenSearchServer is an open-source search engine based on continuously improving open-source technology. Through their SaaS center users can access a public API. The Screenshot API allows users to make a screenshot capture of a Web page. The user can choose to capture only the visible part of the page or the full content. The service uses REST calls and returns a PNG image which can still be reduced (to generate a thumbnail). An account is required with service, and API Key is used to access the API.
Of the many APIs we published this week, thirteen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those thirtenn, which include the StatusPage API. The StatusPage API provides developers with a solution to customer communication when their site or application is experiencing downtime. Specifically, it provides notification tools (email and SMS), downtime monitoring, insight into performance metrics, and customer customization. To learn more about the StatusPage API visit the StatusPage site as well as the StatusPage API blog post.
OpenSearchServer, a search engine API, has launched its first of many APIs to come: OpenSearchServer Screenshot API. The API's basic functionality enables the user to take a screenshot of any website. Users have multiple options regarding screen size and which portions of the screen to capture. The Screenshot API developed out of an open source project aimed at continued improvement across a number of search nuances.
