Kloudless API lets developers integrate with multiple cloud services. Zend releases Apigility 1.0 to general availability. Plus: Amazon adds pro exam to web services certification training, and Soccermetrics API is now in public beta.
Kloudless Launches API for Multiple Cloud Storage Solutions
What to do with the many clouds in the sky? It can be difficult to integrate with all of the storage brands, Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, SugarSync and Google Drive. Kloudless CEO and co-founder Eliot Sun says his new API solves that problem by making it possible to connect apps to multiple storage services.
As Frederic Lardinois reports in Techcrunch, Kloudless started as a service for connecting email to cloud services, but
while building that first version of the service, the team quickly realized that all of the APIs it was trying to work with were quite different from each other, which made their integration complex and time-consuming. Based on this experience, the team then decided to create a simpler solution for developers faced with the same challenge.
Since launching just a month ago, the API is proving popular, signing up with partners like Barracuda, Bitcasa, Citrix and Egnyte. Now, over 2,500 developers are using it as an integration tool. Information on the API is available on the Kloudless developer site.
Zend's General Release of Apigility Opens Door to Creating API-Based Applications
Zend, the PHP App development company, has announced the general release of Apigility, first created in October 2013. The goal is a standard interface to build and maintain top quality APIs.
As the company commented, Apgility allows for the introduction of a wide range of features, from documentation of the API to versioning and error handling.
"We have been astonished and thrilled by the thousands of developers who have already adopted Apigility," said Matthew Weier O'Phinney, Apigility Project Leader. "These early users have validated that Apigility simplifies API creation, enabling them to innovate and create new value for their companies."
Apigility enamels developers to build APIs for mobile apps and many other types by automating aspects of the creation tasks. Apigility facilitates updating APIs and customizing them for a range of business uses. Apigility makes any PHP business logic to be API ready.
