JRAW (the Java Reddit API Wrapper) is a Java Wrapper authored by Matthew Dean, or also referred to as thatJavaNerd. Documentation can be found on Github. While this wrapper is in experimental stage, some of its highlighted features are: Full multireddit and captcha support, Get random posts, trending subreddits, and subreddits, Mini HTTP framework that wraps OkHttp, and Basic site actions (such as login, vote, submit, and comment).
Eight APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Music, News Services, and Time. Highlights include an API for International money transfers, an API for personal budgeting, and an API for converting websites to PDFs. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Facebook has released a Canvas API for Advertisers that can be used to create compelling canvas ads on Facebook. Advertisers can now create canvas components via API such as header, carousel, button, and text. Advertisers can add Canvas to any Facebook photo, video or carousel ad.
What happens when the API is technically secure but the environment, whether widget, web site or mashup, is not? Recent security breaches in MySpace and Yahoo, which led to the release of semi-embarrassing photos of prolific celebs Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, points out the added opportunities for hackers in the open web.
