Daily API RoundUp: Kustomer, ProxyCrawl, Bread, Singapore Airlines

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.

Ten APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Air Travel, Payments, and Passwords. Featured today is an API that enables applications to send passwords via text message and an API to analyze sentiment in social media posts. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Bread is a financing solution offered by New Jersey's Cross River Bank that helps retailers offer pay-over-time solutions. The Bread API enables developers to integrate payment options for eCommerce clients. With the API, developers can include a Bread button that allows customers to apply for credit products in a checkout flow, similar to applying for a loan for shopping online. Transaction and cart management also available. The API is listed under the Payments category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Payments APIs.
