Daily API RoundUp: AlienVault, Forty Seven, FXCM, DeepL

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or source code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb's directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there's a listing in one of our directories that you'd like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

Twelve APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Translation, Hosting, and Machine Learning. Featured today is an API for adding elevation location to applications and an API for integrating two-factor authentication (2FA) into applications. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

DeepL uses a deep learning technology to develop AI systems for languages. The DeepL Translator API allows users to integrate DeepL translation technology into web and mobile applications. This web translation service can be used for chatbots, virtual assistants, email language translators, and computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools. The API is listed under the Translation category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Translation APIs.

Loctome Elevation Service can enrich coordinates with terrain elevation data. The Loctome API can accept two formats of coordinate data input: shapes coordinates and encoded coordinates, and it allows developers to integrate elevation data into applications. Some JavaScript example code is included in the documentation along with a demo app. The API is listed under the Geography category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Geography APIs.

SAASPASS allows users to authenticate to applications securely, replacing ID cards, single sign-on products, and password managers. The SAASPASS API allows developers to integrate two-factor authentication (2FA) into their websites and applications, eliminating the need for usernames and passwords. API methods are available for developers to perform application integration and account management tasks. The SAASPASS API is listed under the Authentication category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Authentication APIs.

Cex.io is a cryptocurrency exchange platform. Integration of the Cex.io WebSocket API allows users to access real time notifications without sending extra requests. This expedites data transmission from the exchange. The Cex.io WebSocket API is listed under the Financial category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Financial APIs.

HorribleSubs is an entertainment and torrent platform for anime and animation movie shows, titles, and series. The HorribleSubs API allows users to develop applications that communicate with the HorribleSubs platform. API methods are available to manage users, providers, torrents, fan art, collections, and much more. The HorribleSubs API is listed under the Animation category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Animation APIs.

IllumiDesk provides access to computer Learning Management Systems (LMS) for teachers, educators, and students. The IllumiDesk Webhooks API enables users with the ability to get, update, replace or create server triggers, and trigger server actions. Examples for cURL, Python, JavaScript, Node, Ruby, PHP, Go, C#, Java, and Swift are available. A REST API is also available for embedding user servers directly into LMS. IllumiDesk was formerly known as 3blades. The APIs are listed under the Learning Management Systems category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Learning Management Systems APIs.

Forex Capital Markets (FXCM) is a 24-hour online trading platform for ForEx (Foreign Exchange),oil, gold, and more. The FXCM Socket REST service is a web-based API using a Websocket connection. It allows users to create a custom trading application for integration with the FXCM platform to back test and create automated trading strategies. The FXCM Socket REST API is listed under the Financial category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Financial APIs.

Simply Hosting services range from VPS and public cloud to outsourcing IT infrastructure. The SimplyHosting API allows users to order SimplyHosting products, manage orders, manage servers, manage IPs, manage backup products, clients, private networks and more. The Simply Hosting API is listed under the Hosting category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Hosting APIs.

AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (AlienVault OTX) is an anti-malware security platform. The OTX Direct Connect API simplifies the synchronization of OTX's Threat Intelligence resources and a users's security monitoring tools.The API fortifies an application's security infrastructure and expedites the detection of threats targeting its environment. The AlienVault OTX Direct Connect API is listed under the Security category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Security APIs.

GetIPIntel IP Intelligence API determines how likely an IP address is a proxy, VPN, or bad IP using advanced mathematical and modern computing techniques, including machine learning and probability theory. The API is listed under the Machine Learning category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Machine Learning APIs.

Forty Seven is a digital bank and financial technology startup that connects fiat and cryptocurrency banking. The Forty Seven API allows businesses and partners to integrate their applications and services with the Forty Seven bank infrastructure. Developers can access user account information, transaction history and metadata of accounts, access payers and payees of an account plus manage counterparties, transactions, payments, requests and more. The Forty Seven API is listed under the Banking category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Banking APIs.

Cloudmersive provides scalable cloud APIs for developers. The Cloudmersive Document and Data Conversion API enables developers to convert files and content between file formats, such as DOCX (Word) to PDF or HTML to PDF. Developers can also screenshot a web URL to PNG format, or convert data between file formats, such as CSV to JSON, or XLSX (Excel) to CSV with one API call. The API supports over a hundred file formats, including PSD, TIFF, PNG and JPG. By using this API make it easy for developers can work with and process a wide range of complex formats quickly.

Why would anyone use DeepL instead of Google's Cloud Translation API?
