Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
DokDok, a Montreal-based startup, has had an email attachment management application on Google Apps some time. To make this work, it made an API to use internally that intelligently uses email accounts as if they were datastores. Recently, the company announced that this API would be renamed Context.IO and available to all.
Railsware, creator of Mailtrap (email test environment), has released the Mailtrap API. Mailtrap provides a "fake" SMTP server so developers can test email environments without the need of actual customers or users. Mailtrap has proved a useful tool to the developer community; however, API access to Mailtrap features has been desired for third party integration. Mailtrap Product Manager, Pavel Pavlovsky, announced that numerous developers requested API access over the past year and Railsware is happy to announce its availability.
