Six APIs have been added to the directory in categories such as Banking, Content Management, and Advertising. Included today is the Plone CMS API, which allows programmatic access to the open source content management system. Here, we summarize the new additions and how they can assist developers.
If you wonder which of the 267 APIs on this site people view most often you might be surprised. It's not Google Maps, it's YouTube. Which has been true for quite some time. But the number of mashups using YouTube has been small, until recently when they've started to pick-up.
When looking at the tags associated with the mashups that are submitted to our directory; the most popular ones have always been mapping, social and search. In recent months that trend has continued and today we look at a mashup type that is nearly as popular but doesn't seem to get as much coverage; the video mashup. These recent Mashup of the Day selections all incorporate video, specifically the YouTube API.
