This Python library allows users to develop using the Bloomberg API. The Bloomberg API provides free, unrestricted access to raw financial data on current market trades (either real-time or delayed), reference data on historical information, and records of intraday trading. As part of their Open Market Data Initiative the Python library is offered under a "free-use" license, which allows unrestricted access of the interface's header files, documentation, and programming examples. Extensive documentation, including code examples, is available in the Developer Documentation and at the API website. Note that the Linux libraries are only available for use with the Server API and B-Pipe data feed products and can't be used with the Desktop API.
Last year, the Executive branch of the US government made huge strides in opening up government controlled data to the developer community. Projects such as the Open Data Policy and the Machine Readable Executive Order have led the US government to develop an API strategy. Today, ProgrammableWeb takes a look at another open government API: the Annual Production Figures of United States Currency API.
Whether its a new e-commerce startup carving out its niche (e.g. Chirpify, Anedot), or an industry giant releasing new API capabilities (e.g. PayPal, MasterCard), e-commerce stories flood the headlines with new ways to transfer money across the web and on the go. However, Terapeak's approach to e-commerce concentrates on behavior as opposed to money transfer. Terapeak has set the industry standard in e-commerce analytics and market research. Recently, Terapeak aimed to broaden its base and encourage deeper analysis with the new Terapeak API and Developer program.
