Daily API RoundUp: Qualys, Riskified, ESPN SDKs

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.

Today's six new APIs include solutions for ecommerce and geolocation applications. New clients include PHP SDKs for ESPN, and new source code samples were added as well.


Statista is an online statistics Portal. The service aggregates data from 18,000 sources such as market researchers, governments, organizations and publications. Their database contains over one million statistics on various subjects. Statista Media API lets developers integrate its services into their websites, enabling them to generate relevant content including infographics to their sites. The two most common format used for this API are JSON and XML.

We've primarily categorized the Statista Media API under the Statistics category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Statistics APIs.

Riskified provides fraud prevention and risk detection services. The Riskified API allows developers to integrate ecommerce fraud prevention services into their own websites and applications. These services use behavioral analysis, elastic linking, proxy detection, and Machine Learning to detect and prevent fraud. All Riskified-approved orders come with a 100% money-back guarantee in the event of fraud. We've primarily categorized the Riskified API under the eCommerce category.

Qualys provides cloud security and compliance solutions. Qualys SSL Labs API allows developers to test their server configuration. This API is free with some restrictions (as detailed in SSL Labs terms and conditions). We've primarily categorized the Qualys SSL Labs API under the Security category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Security APIs

Geobytes provides IP geolocation services, such as GeoDirection, a free service that dynamically redirects internet users based on their location. The Geobytes GeoIf API allows users to get the location associated with a visitor's IP Address and display their location details on a webpage. Integrating the API into a webpage requires no programming skill, just copy and paste one line of code, and flag place holders throughout your page. The positioning of the place-holders determines where the visitor's geographic information will appear on the page. We've primarily categorized the GeoIf API under the Geography category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Geography APIs.

World Wide Web Consortium ( W3C) is an industry consortium to promote web standards. The W3C Time Framing API allows for specification for defined interfaces to assist web developers to measure the performance of applications. The spec gives access to frame performance data to facilitate both FPS (frames-per-second) and TTF (time-to-frame ) measurements. We've primarily categorized the W3C Time Framing API API under the Standards category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Standards APIs

The Gem Bitcoin API allows developers to integrate fully functional Bitcoin wallets into their applications. This service is highly scalable, allowing users to create as many wallets as they want. The API uses multi-signature authorization, multi-factor Authentication, and real-time monitoring to ensure the security of all transactions. We've primarily categorized the Gem Bitcoin API under the Bitcoin category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Bitcoin APIs


There were two PHP SDKs added to the Clients area of the directory for ESPN. ESPN PHP SDK by Debarshi is a user-friendly tool for developers to utilize and communicate with the ESPN API using PHP. It was created using Google Code but can also be exported to GitHub. ESPN PHP SDK by Laddu Debarshi Banerjee provides developers an easy to use way to use the ESPN API in PHP language.
