The Twilio C++ Library by Laurent Luce is a C++ helper library for the Twilio API. This C++ library simplifies the process of making requests to the Twilio REST API, generating TwiML and validating HTTP request signatures. Twilio provides a simple hosted API and markup language for businesses to quickly build scalable, reliable and advanced voice and SMS communications applications.
100TB, a rising Web hosting provider, has launched its first API: the Tera API. The API is aimed at 100TB's reseller customers. 100TB describes an API as a potential "trump card" in a reseller's hand because it allows a reseller's end users to control servers directly through the reseller. With the correct API methods available to the reseller, the end users no longer have the need for a third party to manage their servers. In its first release, the Tera API comes stocked with a wide array of methods, and the company anticipates that the list will grow.
The Currency Cloud, cross border payment as a service provider, has enabled developers to integrate international payment processing with an API: XBPConnect. Prior to the Currency Cloud, payment/invoice software required users to leave the platform and engage a third party to process an international invoice. The Currency Cloud allows cross border and multi-currency transactions from a single platform. The API allows developers to integrate the functionality into existing apps and platforms.
