Daily API RoundUp: oneheap, USDA, Wagapi, Skype

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.

Fourteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Gambling, Weather, Mapping, and Agriculture. Featured today are APIs for automating filling and extraction in PDFs, and an API for interviewing job candidates via Skype. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

airSpring Software provides automated digital document services to enhance user experience. The airSpring Software Extract PDF Data API extracts data from prefilled PDF and returns the data in a JSON format. The airSpring Software PDF Fill API can be used to fill or extract data from a PDF form. Developers can supply the URL to any fillable PDF, and fill it with data. The API supports ECM software, tax forms, and more. The airSpring Software APIs are listed under the Documents category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Documents APIs.

The USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Quick Stats service is an on-line database containing official published aggregate estimates related to U.S. agricultural production. The USDA NASS Quick Stats API provides direct access to the statistical information in the Quick Stats database. NASS develops these estimates from data collected through sample surveys conducted each year and the Census of Agriculture conducted every five years providing state- and county-level data. The NASS Quick Stats API is listed under the Agriculture category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Agriculture APIs.

The Skype Interviews API can be used to enable Skype Interviews as part of a company's recruiting application. The API includes methods for creating, customizing, and scheduling interviews programmatically. API users are given the option to send participants email confirmation about their interview as well as request feedback from the interviewer over email after the interview. The Skype Interviews API is listed under the WebRTC category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of WebRTC APIs.

The VURL API can be integrated with applications to automate URL shortener capabilities. URLs sent to VURL.com must be encoded. The VURL API is listed under the URL Shortener category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of URL Shortener APIs.

OpenWrks provides Open Banking tools and services. The OpenWrks Surface API is a RESTful service that provides access to OpenWrks customer data with examples for cURL, C#, JavaScript, Python, PHP, Java, Node, Ruby, Objective-C, Swift and Go.
