Publishing has certainly become a more competitive market over the last 10 years, with editorial budgets falling, print readership dropping, and the difficulty that news sites have had in securing paid memberships. This economic reality is driving many changes in the journalistic trade and the news media industry. One such change might be increased competition for readers and more varied news sources come onto the scene. Enter PublishFlow, a web service programmed to watch your editorial back. The PublishFlow API allows you to monitor many news sites at once, tracking things like headlines, top stories, authors and categories.
Have a look at the APIs that peaked the interest of developers, readers, and our own researchers. APIs were chosen according to web traffic, social media mentions, picks from our API directory research team, and hot categories. These interesting APIs were all added to our directory during 2017.
There are major advantages to today’s applications being built atop APIs. If you’re reading ProgrammableWeb, there’s a good chance you know all about integrating with other services. The major disadvantage of modern distributed architecture is pretty obvious—someone else’s service could go down and it’s outside of your control. You might not even know a service is down, which is why many top API providers are now making status pages available. These sites help communicate to developers when anything is amiss with the API.
