Daily API RoundUp: BaasBox, Sikka Healthcare, Akamai Connect, Tradable Bits

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 six APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in the Healthcare, Backend, Library, and Caching categories, among others. Included in today's additions is the BaasBox API, which allows developers to integrate with a free, open source, mobile backend Platform. Here, we summarize the new additions and how they can assist developers.


BaasBox offers backend services for mobile apps. With the BaasBox API, developers can integrate the mobile backend solutions. The open source interface provides JSON and REST formats accessible with an API Key. Additional resources include console, plugin engine, and user cases.
