Of the many APIs we published this week, twenty were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those twenty, which included the Gnip YouTube Comments API. The basic idea of the API is to aid social media managers with harnessing the value from users comments and applying those values in ways that will help the company.
The Cliflo API from New Zealand’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) gives access to data from 6,500 climate stations maintained by the government of New Zealand. The API webpage notes that access is by subscription, though the cost is free, suggesting that only registration and agreement with the terms and conditions are required. Access to data gathered by Pacific Island stations is restricted by agreement with Pacific Island countries. However it is possible to obtain access by permission.
