Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
APIs continue to work their way into just about every part of the digital economy. The latest example is Subledger, which offers a suite of APIs that let developers integrate accounting functionality into their applications.
APIs are largely hailed as the driving force behind digital innovation, and it is difficult to argue with this concept. Yet despite many high-profile API evangelists preaching the good word about APIs in general, there is a need for more localised evangelism, according to a post by Sam Macklin.
Popular "hyperlocal" news and information service Outside.in recently released an API (our Outside.in API Profile) that provides developers with a way to access up-to-the-minute, location-based news. Based on its “news around you” feature, Radar, the API provides access to various types of information, including the latest news stories, blog posts, Twitter tweets and more located within 1,000 feet of a specific location.
