Daily API RoundUp: IPFS, Ontotext, Harpseal, Pandexio SDKs

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 such as Marketing and Monitoring. Also new to the directory are clients for Pandexio and e-SignLive. Here's a summary.


The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a P2P hypermedia distribution protocol that enables the creation of completely distributed applications. InterPlanetary File System API allows users to programmatically access all of the methods available through its command line interface.

We've categorized the IPFS API under the Application Development category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Application Development APIs.

Facebook Marketing API allows developers to access Facebook's advertising Platform. Developers can get access to data for dynamic ads, targeting, best practices and other ad & audience management services. Plus access for insights data such as tracking specs, conversion rates and much more. We've categorized the ccc API under the Marketing category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Marketing APIs.

The Harpseal API allows developers to create a cluster monitoring system for their Linux systems. The API can also be used to graph and analyze collected data. Harpseal was created to collect system resources, usage, and more via plugins. It is provided as an alternative to munin, mrtg, etc. We've categorized the ccc API under the Monitoring category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Monitoring APIs.

Ontotext is a provider of semantic software. We've added two APIs from Ontotext today: GraphDB API offers developers a DBaaS that requires minimal knowledge of database development. The API offers installation and upgrades, provisioning and deployment, backups and restores, and ensuring database availability. We've categorized the this API under the RDF category. RDF stands for Resource Description Framework, which is a standard model for data interchange on the Web. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of RDF APIs.

Ontotext Semantic Biomedical Tagger (SBT) API offers developers built-in capability to recognize 133 biomedical entity types and semantically link them to the knowledge base systems, in this case LinkedLifeData (LLD). The API aims to load entity names from the LLD service or other RDF databases with a SPARQL Endpoint. This API is listed under the Semantics category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Semantics APIs.


e-SignLive provides a comprehensive set of secure electronic signature methods for business interactions with third parties. e-SignLive Java SDK by Silanis allows communication with the e-SignLive API to integrate electronic signature features into business applications. With the SDK, developers can sign documents via Web Service. The SDK includes Documentation, JavaDoc, and GitHub examples.

The Pandexio Core API offers a content-capture platform to integrate with existing applications. This lets employees create a knowledge base within organizations. These SDKS all offer access to Pandexio's content-capture platform, and to integrate it with existing applications: Pandexio Core Node.js SDK , Pandexio Core Python SDK, Pandexio Core Ruby SDK and Pandexio Core .NET SDK .
