Daily API RoundUp: Automatic, Unloq, Xen Project

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.

We’ve added 6 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in Auto, Cryptocurrency, and Recognition categories, among others. Also added were client libraries for use with the Intuit QuickBooks Online API.

APIs

Automatic is a wireless device that connects a person’s car and smartphone through the auto’s data port. It communicates with the car’s onboard computer and upgrades the car’s capabilities using the smartphone’s GPS and data plan. The Automatic Real Time Event API allows developers to access event data from Automatic and send it to a listener URL on an application. The API can also send real-time information when a vehicle’s ignition is on.

We’ve categorized the Automatic Real Time Event API under the Auto category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Auto APIs.

BitMEX (The Bitcoin Mercantile Exchange) is a cryptocurrency derivatives platform built by financial professionals. The platform is a safe place to hedge risk, since profits are never clawed back. The BitMEX API allows users to automate their BitMEX trading and account management functions. BitMEX employs multi-factor security and uses multi-signature wallets for all transactions. We've primarily categorized the BitMEX API under the Cryptocurrency category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Cryptocurrency APIs.

PyImageSearch is a blog for programmers to learn about image search engines.The PyImageSearch Web API is intended to be a teaching tool for use with computer vision tutorials on the PyImageSearch blog. The API currently allows developers to detect faces; additional methods are expected to be added in the future. The API is categorized in the directory under the Recognition category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Recognition APIs.

Unloq is an authentication and authorization management platform for applications. The Unloq REST API allows developers to manage authentication and authorization as well as user accounts and account information.

We’ve primarily categorized the Unloq REST API under the Authentication category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Authentication APIs.

Affirm is an online payment platform that allows merchants to offer a pay-over-time option on their website and applications. The Affirm REST API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of Affirm with other applications. Some example API methods include managing checkout functions, retrieving charge information, and managing shipping and contact information. We’ve primarily categorized the Affirm API under the Payments category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Payments APIs.

The Xen Project is an open-source community that develops services to allow hardware to concurrently execute multiple operating systems. The Xen Project Management API, or XAPI, gives developers access to tools for optimizing server workloads and other hardware functions, and provides an interface for the remote management of virtualized guests running on a Xen-enabled host. The API is listed under the Virtualization category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Virtualization APIs.

Clients

The unified Intuit QuickBooks Online API gives developers access to Intuit QuickBooks Online accounting features and payment processing services. ProgrammableWeb has recently added a number of libraries for use with the API.

Intuit QuickBooks PHP SDK, Intuit QuickBooks Java SDK, and Intuit QuickBooks .NET SDK, all by Intuit, provide developers with a way to integrate their applications with the Intuit API using the corresponding languages.

Intuit QuickBooks Ruby SDK by Cody Caughlan provides developers with a way to integrate their applications with the Intuit API using Ruby on Rails.

Intuit QuickBooks Node.js SDK by Michael Cohen provides developers with a way to integrate their applications with the Intuit API using Node.js.
