Tapir allows you to make your personal blog of static pages searchable through its selection of APIs. Tapir provides simple search functionality for your site through indexing your RSS feeds every 15 minutes or so. Tapir can only index what is in your established feed.
Using Tapir's three APIs: Search, Ping and Post, you can manage your blog's searchable content and push content through the APIs to be included in your feed. Information is returned in either JSON or JSONP formats utilizing a different callback method.
Tapir also provides a JQuery plugin. Tapir is sponsered through 80beans.
Of the many APIs we published this week, 15 were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those 15, which include the Datownia API. The Datownia API generates an API from an Excel spreadsheet that allows developers to integrate their data with any website or app. The object of the API is to allow developers to update content on multi-platform apps simultaneously. To learn more about the Datownia API visit the Datownia site as well as the Datownia API blog post.
The Tapir API is really 3: Search, Ping and Post to give you the power to make your blog searchable, get your articles indexed immediately, and push content manually. Indexing of the Rss feed is done at 15 minute intervals. According to the API documentation, the results are returned in JSON or JSONP.
