Daily API RoundUp: Blocktrail, Google Apps Script, Jenkins

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.

Six more APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including DevOps, Bitcoin, and Automation. Featured today is the Google Apps Script API for use with developing additions for Google's G-Suite office applications. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Google Apps Script is a JavaScript-based Platform that is used for implementing add-ons for G Suite applications such as Google Calendar, Google Docs, Google Drive, Gmail, Google Sheets, Google Slides and more. The Google Apps Script API allows developers to automate tasks for spreadsheets, add buttons, and more, plus issue Apps Script API commands for other integrations. The new Apps Script CLI is dubbed clasp, for Command Line Apps Script Projects, and is an open-source project available on GitHub. This API is listed under the Tools category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Tools APIs.

APIseeds provides simple APIs for enriching applications. The Apiseeds Lyrics API provides a searchable lyrics database with over one million song lyrics. The API supports the following responses: tracks, artists, language, and names. JSON is the preferred response format. The API is listed under the Lyrics category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Lyrics APIs.

Blocktrail is a Bitcoin wallet that allows users to send and receive Bitcoin securely. The BlockTrail Bitcoin Market API allows developers to retrieve the current Bitcoin price index in USD. The price index is based on the CoinDesk Price Index. The Blocktrail Bitcoin Market API is listed under the Bitcoin category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Bitcoin APIs.

The Jenkins Remote Access API provides programmatic access to Jenkins, an open source automation server designed to support the deployment and automation of any kind of project. This API can be used to create or copy jobs, trigger a new build, or retrieve information from Jenkins for programmatic consumption. The Jenkins Remote Access API is listed under the Automation category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Automation APIs.

The Solve Recaptcha API automatically solves Google's recaptcha2 captchas via data-sitekey. The API is fee-based depending on the number of threads per month, and is listed under the Captcha category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Captcha APIs.

Sourcegraph Server is an open source code search server. The Sourcegraph API allows developers to find code using intelligence search. It's available with GraphQL architecture that supports full-text and regexp code search, git-level metadata, raw git commands, dependency graph queries, and repository and user metadata. The Sourcegraph API is listed under the DevOps category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of DevOps APIs.
