Daily API RoundUp: Qooxdoo, Stackify, Sportradar NHL

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 8 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in Monitoring, Captcha, Shipping, and Framework categories. Here’s a rundown of what is new.


Stackify is a monitoring solution for servers, app metrics, and app performance. It sends users alerts when new errors or high error rates occur. Users can view all application logs together to troubleshoot problems quickly. The Stackify API allows users to access their errors, logs, and metrics.

Sportradar is a provider of sports and betting-related live data, odds solutions, and fraud detection services. The Sportradar NHL API allows developers to integrate their applications with the Sportradar NHL (National Hockey League) database, using RESTful methods. The Sportradar MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) API allows developers to integrate their applications with the Sportradar MMA database, using RESTful methods. Developers can access participant details, event schedules, event results, and more. These APIs are listed under the Sports category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Sports APIs.

Captcha Bot Detect offers captcha Integration services to users who work with PHP, ASP.NET, and Java. The Bot Detect API allows various parameters for customizing Captcha design. Design examples are easy for humans to solve, but difficult for robots (Bots) to solve. Include Captcha with bubbles, neon, paint mess, and chess images. This API is categorized under Captcha. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Captcha APIs.

Qooxdoo is a universal JavaScript framework, and is owned and managed by 1&1, a web host company. Three APIs are offered and are listed in the ProgrammableWeb directory.

The qx.Mobile API provides developers with a way to build and integrate low-level components for mobile devices. Specific UI classes and styling for touch devices are provided, such as swiping.

The qx.Website API features a DOM selector engine (Sizzle), BOM and HTML abstraction layers, and cross-browser keyboard and pointer (mouse, touch, and pen) events. Visual elements are not contained. Code can be shrink-wrapped to a single JavaScript file.

The qx.Desktop API provides developers with a way to build rich and interactive, desktop-like applications. It’s primarily useful for widgets like sliders, buttons, carousels, tabviews, and tables. Keyboard and pointer (mouse, touch, and pen) events provide cross-browser handling.

We’ve categorized the Qooxdoo APIs under the Framework category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Framework APIs.

SendCloud can generate shipping labels, send personalized Track & Trace emails, pay postage, and more. Services have been optimized for e-commerce. The SendCloud API allows developers to access shipping services for their online shops. The SendCloud website is provided in Dutch, but the API Documentation is in English. We’ve primarily categorized the SendCloud API under the Shipping category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Shipping APIs.
