The Contentful Content Management Ruby Gem Library is a Ruby gem client library for managing content for Contentful's Content Management API. The Content Management API provides developers the ability to import content from personal servers, third-party systems or tap into crowd-sourced user contributions. Some features include: automating content import and updates with custom scripts, exporting content for offline backup, and building content management applications.
Gliffy, a browser-based diagramming and flowchart tool, today announced the public availability of their new API (technical details at our Gliffy API Profile). The four year old company announced the new API on its blog, noting that Gliffy hopes to take advantage of the growing trend of companies that are unlocking their APIs to extend the reach of their applications and data.
Buffer, a social media manger, opened the Buffer API last week beyond its internal apps. According to co-founder, Leo Wildrich, the decision sprung from its single purpose as a company: "How can we make sharing links, videos and images to your social networks easier and more powerful?" Unlike its main competitors, Hootsuite and Sprout Social, Buffer "focus[es] on non-original content sharing, especially photos, videos and articles" states Tech Crunch. As Buffer launches its API, and attempts to make sharing easier, Wildrich stressed that Buffer aims "to build a new sharing standard...across the web."
