Daily API RoundUp: geoPlugin, Cerise, Taxicode, Neobi

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.

Five APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories Currency, Transportation, and Location. Highlights include an API for cannabis data retrieval and an API for locating application users down to the geocoordinates. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Taxicode is a taxi, minibus and coach comparison and booking service in the United Kingdom. The Taxicode Booking API is a collection of HTTP interfaces that provide the ability to get quotes, book journeys and perform other actions related to booking by an application or by authenticated Taxicode users. The Taxicode API allows users to request a quote for a journey and then pay for that journey. Taxicode also has an affiliate program and the Taxicode Affiliate API allows users to review account information and bookings. Both APIs are filed under the Transportation category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Transportation APIs.

It enables users to lookup the location a user via IP address or geocoordinates. The API then can perform currency conversion, and provide data such as country, region/state, city, zip code, latitude, longitude. Reverse geocoding can also be performed. The geoPlugin API is listed under the Location category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Location APIs.

Cerise is an API that enables developers to access the Currency & Exchange Rate Information SErver. The API allows retrieval of supported currency-pair tokens, currency-pair information, current exchange rates, and historical exchange rates. Cerise provides BIP-0171 specifications, a mocked BIP-0171-compliant server, a server template project, and a collection of client libraries. The Cerise API is listed under the Currency category.

BeliefMedia is a media and marketing company based in Australia. The company's Hiztory service was built as a means of creating "This Day in History" functionality to BeliefMedia clients.
