Daily API RoundUp: Flock, Paystack, AirMap, Aerospike, Tokenly, Netbeez, Pulpix

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.

Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Payments, Semantic Web, Augmented Reality and Chat. One highlight today is the Aerospike API which integrates applications with a NoSQL database. Here's a look at what's new.

APIs

The API is listed under the Customer Relationship Management category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Customer Relationship Management APIs.

Pulpix is a video engagement platform for brands to engage with users over video. Their platform uses artificial intelligence to recommend the best content for your viewers at the right time. Developers interested in the Pulpix API can register for an account and access the documentation. The Pulpix API is listed under the Video category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Video APIs.

The Aerospike API integrates NoSQL databases into Web services. It is accessible with Java, CSharp, C, Go, NodeJS, Perl, Python, Ruby, and Erlang languages. Connectors include Hadoop, plugins, and sessions. Aerospike includes geospatial and geographic replication features, along with scalable and open source properties. This API is listed under the NoSQL category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of NoSQL APIs.

AirMap is an airspace services platform for drones. The AirMap API allows developers to integrate tools that help create GIS and drone applications. AirMap sources their own data so that drone manufacturers and developers don't have to to worry about sourcing their own airspace databases. The API offers information related to airspace objects and rules, aircraft type, flight status and direction, pilots, and more.  AirMap API is listed under the Robots category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Robots APIs.
