This package wraps the Campaign Monitor API so that Ruby applications may interface with it. Maintained by Campaign Monitor, the library requires Ruby >/= 1.9.3. The Campaign Monitor API allows users to interact and "sync" with their Campaign Monitor account via simple web-based methods. Common uses of the API include: *Automatically sync subscribers between Campaign Monitor and a third party tool. *Create and send custom email campaigns to segments of subscribers built on the fly. *Develop useful plugins and integrations like these guys for other popular apps *Automatically create a client account, set billing and load it with ready-to-send templates.
CiRBA has just released an API that communicates with your cloud management platform telling it the most efficient spot for that next virtual machine (VM). The API could make for a good marriage between platforms. While cloud management solutions are ideal for provisioning VMs, they don’t always have controls in place for managing capacity.
For any business or website that relies on user or customer interaction, communication is important, and often the only point of contact a business may have with that customer is an email address. This is where email validation can lend a helping hand; as long as mail can be successfully sent to an address all is good, but if there's some issue causing failed delivery and other errors, better to know about it. Email Pie is a free, JSON API that provides a simple way to validate email addresses.
