Daily API RoundUp: Telestream, Hygger, chopsticks.cash, Skyhook

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.

Nine APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Blockchian, Location, and Project Management. Highlights include APIs for Telestream streaming video platform and Skyhook location intelligence solutions. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Skyhook provides context, geospatial insights, and other location intelligence services. The Skyhook Hyperlocal IP API allows developers to access locations for IP addresses. Data is available in IPv4 format for 150 countries, with demographic and postal data available for US addresses only. The Skyhook Personas API allows developers to create behavioral and demographic personas based on users' anonymized information. This service is designed to enhance advertising and user experience. The Skyhook API is listed under the Location category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Location APIs.

Hygger provides a product management platform designed for Agile teams. Hygger features a collaborative idea bank used to define quick wins, big bets, and timesinks, which developers can use for user research, feedback, and to identify bugs. The Hygger API offers JSON formatted data for managing clients, companies, tasks, and more. This API is listed under the Project Management category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Project Management APIs.

Eminent.ly provides a blockchain platform for paid employee referral services. Emintent.ly developers recently launched the chopsticks.cash API, which provides a way to record transactions on each BitcoinCash (BCH/XBC) post-fork chain. The API was announced with the anticipation of the upcoming BitcoinCash hard fork (scheduled for November 15, 2018). It allows users to take a pre-signed transaction (POST request), execute a transaction, cast a vote about chain preference, and more. This API is listed under the Blockchain category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Blockchain APIs.
