This SDK is for Python developers interested in accessing the Open Beer Database API. Use of the SDK requires: Python 2.6+, simplejson, httplib2, and urllib. The Open Beer Database is a free public database of information on beers and breweries. Note that the API is a work in progress, and subject to change.
Six APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Video, Messaging, and Currency. Highlights include the Moovly API for custom video creation integration and the Open Brewery DB API for retrieving beer and brewery data. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Back in May I wrote about the race for either unified APIs or API standards to bridge the growing number of APIs in specific industries or areas. Unified APIs are created by a third party provider to bridge multiple APIs, while API standards would potentially create an industry-wide standard of how APIs should operate.
The latest version FileMaker adds a mechanism for easily extending the venerable database platform for use with browsers and mobile—without the need for Web programming or app development. Based on our tests, Version 13 of FileMaker is a powerful yet simple tool for designing and publishing custom databases that will suit businesses’ specific data management requirements.
