This week we had 4 new APIs added to our API directory including an API that lets you search 30 million scientific, technical and medical research articles; one we highlighted earlier this week that is a travel guide API; an API for sharing videos on Twitter; and an API for social measurement and analytics. Below are more details on each of these new APIs.
Paw version 3 has been released and includes new features such as Paw for Teams, a dark theme, interface improvements, and several bug fixes. Paw is a native Mac HTTP client for testing REST APIs and features code generators, advanced support for cookies and sessions, and more.
Quantified Self, "a collaboration of users and tool makers who share an interest in self knowledge through self-tracking," requires tapping into massive amounts of data for its very existence. Members meet in an online community, and in person through small groups and a larger conference. The goal of any meeting is to learn, develop, and refine methods for collecting personal data in hopes to generate an effective response to the data. At Quantified Self forums around the world, "[i]ndividuals tell their stores of using data to better understand who they are and how they interact with the world around them." says Singly.
