Daily API RoundUp: Meerkat, Dextro, Sticky, Owler, Meeti, Private.Me

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.

Six APIs have been added to the library including one from Meerkat, the live streaming service, and Stream by Dextro, for visualizing livestream data from Periscope and Meerkat.


Meerkat is a live video streaming application for use in tweeting live video on Twitter. The Meerkat REST API allows developers to integrate Meerkat live streaming with other apps.
