Daily API RoundUp: Craft.ai, Mapme, Fieldbook, Tallyfy, Languagelayer

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.

Ten APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Tools, Language, Database, and Politics. Here's a look at what's new.


Craft. AI is an AI engine created for developers, and is powered by a visual editor and the RESTful APIs. The Craft.ai API is an HTTP REST API that provides developers tools for using Craft.ai. Users can add contextual and personalized automation in mobile, Web and IoT applications.
