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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nine APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Recognition, Software-as-a-Service, Fonts, and Travel. Here's a summary of the new additions.
Webconverger is a Linux-based OS for accessing Web apps privately and securely. The open source Webconverger API allows to integrate Web Kiosk features where multiple computers provide services to users, such as in banks, schools or libraries. We've listed this API under the Software-as-a-Service category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of SaaS APIs.
NetSpark provides Web filtering services. NetSpark Nude Detect API is an image recognition API geared towards filtering images containing nudity, pornography or otherwise lewd conduct. It supports many image types and is JSON formatted. The API can distinguish between images of swimwear or lingerie and those of a pornographic nature. This API has been added to the directory under the Recognition category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Recognition APIs.
Mailgun Events API primarily facilitates email tracking. Users can monitor the conveyance of email communications to target recipients. The RESTful API is fully documented and is designed to convey returns in JSON format. We've categorized the Mailgun Events API under the Email category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Email APIs.
Everything Fonts' Font Conversion RESTful API converts text from one format to another. Designed to help with front-end development, the API supports all major formats: ttf, otf, svg, woff, postscript formats etc. Font Conversion API can also convert font files to @font-face kits. Outputs are either encoded JSON or a binary font/zip file.

Amadeus provides tech services for travel. Several APIs provided by Amadeus are being added to the directory this week. Today's additions include:
Amadeus Hotel Property Code Search API enables users to see the detailed information of a single hotel, including descriptions, address, GPS location, amenities, awards, lowest priced room and all room prices and booking information.
Amadeus Airline Autocomplete API allows users to get the full name and IATA airline code of the airline, for use in flight searches.
Amadeus Hotel Airport Search API, Amadeus Hotel Geosearch by circle API, and Amadeus Hotel Geosearch by box API all provide developers a way to enable their users to see which hotels are available in a given area, on a given day and displays their lowest prices. Several more Amadeus APIs for developers of travel applications can be found on ProgrammableWeb. Most are categorized under Travel, Air Travel, or Hotels.
SDKs & Libraries
Utility API delivers "simple access to energy usage data". The API offers a data collection system that can be integrated to renewable energy oriented apps. It can be used to gather utility bill and usage data. The company provides a PHP SDK, iOS SDK, Android SDK, and Ruby SDK to aid developers with building applications.
