When we wrote about APIs fueling an "instant" frenzy, there were only four mashups in our directory tagged instant. We've added more than that just this week, taking our total to 16 instant mashups. But the most common type of instant mashup may surprise you.
Seven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Shipping and Mapping. Highlights include the Lengoo API which allows applications to be integrated with human translation services, and gRPC versions of Google Cloud Vision and Video Intelligence APIs.
Developers are often finding themselves as API providers in addition to consumers. The same is now true for me with my project, BuildaSearch. I recently released a BuildaSearch API for deeper site search integration, moving away from a more plug-and-play approach I took earlier on.
