Library

ProgrammableWeb reserves the word “library” for bits of software that result in the provisioning (aka “standing-up”) of an API. For example, there are a number of locally installable server applications that come with no APIs and for many of those server apps, third party developers will often build libraries that, once installed, result in the addition of RESTful APIs to those server apps.
