Daily API RoundUp: Clearbit, Microsoft Parature, Reposify, JivoChat

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.

Eighteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Insurance, Testing, Sales, and Internet of Things. Highlights today include four more APIs from Business Intelligence solution provider, Clearbit. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Reposify Platform finds devices' relationships with people and other devices, and detects what technologies exist on each device, such as an accessible database, Web server, or specific operating system. The Reposify API allows developers to gain insights about devices connected to the public Internet worldwide. Developers can use a browser to access URLs, as well as most HTTP clients in any programming language to interact with the API. The API is listed under the Internet of Things category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Internet of Things APIs.

Zephyr is a cloud based testing platform with applications and metrics based visibility via real time dashboards. Using the Zephyr REST API or the Zephyr SOAP Web Services API, developers can integrate Zephyr services into apps, create a testcase in a sepaate tool and add it to Zephyr, or create an execution cycle and update the status of a testcase execution run. The Zephyr APIs are listed under the Testing category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Testing APIs.

The UCF (Unified Compliance Framework), complete list of Compliance APIs.

InsideSales.com provides sales lead management technology to businesses with a telephony suite of tools including voice messaging, auto dialing, and lead response. The InsideSales SOAP API enables InsideSales reps to qualify leads, dial and improve contact rates. To use the SOAP webservice users need to access the WSDL document for their company's subdomain.

The World Wide Web Consortium ( W3C) is an international community for setting Web standards. Two more APIs from W3C were added to the directory today. The W3C Visibility API allows a Resource to request that a user agent guarantee to display its viewport in an unmodified manner and report on its success or failure in meeting this guarantee. Additionally, the API document defines a mechanism for requesting visibility protection and receiving notifications if events are delivered to a resource that is not meeting its visibility contract. The W3C CSS Painting API is a specification that describes an API for allowing developers to use an additional Function to their CSS code. This affects the paint stage of CSS, which is responsible for painting a box's background, content, and highlight based on the box's geometry and computed style. Support may be added for defining the clip, global alpha, and filter on a portion of a box in future versions of this specification. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Standards APIs.
