Daily API RoundUp: Google Drive Real Time, RackSpace, Supply Stream

Today six APIs, one Source Code sample, and a number of clients were added to the ProgrammableWeb directory. Here, we summarize the API additions and highlight a few of the new clients.

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.

SupplyStream’s new web-catalog aggregates home electronics and automation-industry suppliers and products. The SupplyStream API, available to select software partners, will allow dealers to integrate their customized product and pricing catalog with other industry software tools. Developers interested in accessing the API should contact SupplyStream for more information. We’ve primarily categorized the SupplyStream API under the Products category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Products APIs.

Paid API is an automated invoicing system for developers. It supports multiple payment methods and data can be pushed to any server that accepts Webhooks. Use Paid API to automatically collect payments and send follow-ups, create and track invoices, and access account analytics. Paid is RESTful and uses HTTP Basic Auth with API Keys for Authentication. We’ve primarily categorized the Paid API under the Invoicing category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Invoicing APIs.

RBMTV V5 Media Engine is an online video Platform provided by RiGHT BRAiN MEDiA. The RBMTV V5 Media Engine API includes functions that facilitate video management, video encoding, live streaming, and live transcoding. We’ve primarily categorized the RBMTV V5 Media Engine API under the Encoding category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Encoding APIs.

CHINO REST API helps developers manage sensitive data in applications. CHINO’s service is fully compliant with current EU Laws and guidelines for health data management. Developing with CHINO ensures data is transferred securely, data is encrypted, and Encryption keys and records are stored on different servers. We’ve primarily categorized the CHINO REST API under the Backend-as-a-service category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Backend-as-a-service APIs.


Several libraries by Heroku, a cloud PaaS, have been added to the Client area of the directory. The Heroku PHP SDK by Heroku is written in PHP, and allows developers to deploy and scale Ruby apps in the cloud. Other libraries provided by Heroku include their Python SDK, Node.js SDK, Java SDK, and Ruby SDK.

Atlassian provides software for developers to collaborate on projects. Use this Atlassian Python SDK by Matt Harasymczuk to interface with Atlassian’s Jira and Confluence APIs. Atlassian’s project management APIs allow users to share files, create unique workspaces for each project, easily integrate ticket tracking, and more.
