This Python library is the official client developed and supported by Bit.ly to interface with the Bit.ly API from a Python application. The Bit.ly API allows developers to implement programmatic shortening, sharing, and tracking of links (URLs). Unique user-level and aggregate links can also be created to let users view complete, real-time traffic and referrer data, as well as location and metadata.
AlchemyAPI this week exposed a computer vision API to extend its text analytics cloud service in a way that will make it easier for publishers to identify images that are closely related to one another.
We have seen an explosion in the number of APIs that are now available to developers. It seems like almost everyone has one and those that don't are scrambling to get one. The focus now is clearly not on just having an API, but having a "great API." Two excellent presentations from Cloudstock, held earlier this month, give you an overview on the current state of the API market and tips on what makes a great API.
