Daily API RoundUp: Barclays, Body Labs, Soclip

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.

Nineteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including 3D, Sales, Analytics, and Banking. Highlights today are several APIs from Barclays from their Rise Marketplace initiative, and the Body Labs SOMA Shape API for 3D measurements, movements, and visuals.


Body Labs provides 3D software focused on the human body and how it moves. Body Labs SOMA is human-aware Artificial Intelligence technology that transforms photos, videos, body scans, or physical measurements into the accurate 3D body shape of people. The shapes can then be compared or measured for fitting and sizing purposes. The Body Labs SOMA Shape API provides a programmatic interface to get shape and measurement values from images, height, weight, and gender. The API is listed under the Augmented Reality category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Augmented Reality APIs.
