Daily API RoundUp: DeviantArt, Crisp Platform, WebMerge, SpaCy, Metricle, ReviewTrust

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.

Seventeen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Financial, Art, Chat, and Authentication. One highlight is the ReviewTrust API, which enables developers to add confirmation of valid reviews and ratings about products for their users. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

The Chrome Intersection Observers API allows developers to determine when an element in their DOM is visible to the end user. If an element is only partially visible, the API can determine what proportion of it is visible. This could be used to delay loading images until they're needed or to determine whether an end user is actually seeing an ad banner. This API is listed under the Viewer category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Viewer APIs.

Metricle provides financial data analytics services. The Metricle API integrates financial big data alerts in real time. The technology offers sentiment, user scoring, and event detection. The Metricle API is listed under the Financial category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Financial APIs.

The API's provider, Crisp Thinking Group provides security solutions for filtering offensive content in social media networks, online forums, images, and videos in addition to providing a buffer against cyber security risks such as bullying and radicalization. The Crisp API is primarily categorized under the Social category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Social APIs.

Enrichr is a Web-based tool that allows users to submit gene lists for enrichment analysis. The Enrichr API allows developers to analyze gene lists, view added gene lists, get enrichment results, find terms that contain a given gene, and download files of enrichment results. Enrichment analysis infers knowledge about a gene set by comparing it to gene sets that have already been annotated and searching for overlap. The Enrichr API is listed under the Genetics category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Genetics APIs.

The W3C Reporting API is used for prioritizing and delivery of reports which are sent to an endpoint or location in a group. We've listed this API under the Browsers category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Browsers APIs.

The Identity.com API verifies identities of users who sign on to marketplaces and online communities. Developers can integrate from client side with JavaScript SDK and server side with HTTP GET requests, using OAuth 2 to authenticate. This API is listed under the Identity category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Identity APIs.

SpaCy helps developers "write programs that do clever things with text". SpaCy is available as API and SaaS. Use the SpaCy API to integrate natural language processing into applications. The SpaCy API is listed under the Natural Language Processing category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Natural Language Processing APIs.
