Daily API RoundUp: Klear, SocialInviter, TwitchTV, and Goodreads Libraries

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.

We’ve added 7 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in Social, Marketing, and Messaging categories, among others. Also added were JavaScript libraries for the TwitchTV API.


Klear (formerly Twtrland) is a social media analysis tool that helps users find influencers by topic and get engagement statistics. The Klear REST API allows developers to look up users, retrieve user information, retrieve audience demographics, and more.
