This week we had 59 new APIs added to our API directory including a content management system for applications, file sharing and organizing service, text processing and translation service, product customization service, and multi-channel commerce platform. In addition we covered an issue tracking API and an API for managing email newsletters. Below are more details on each of these new APIs.
Of the many APIs we published this week, six were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those six, which include the Hackpad API. Hackpad is a collaborative tool that allows groups of people to edit a document in real time. The API simply makes this functionality available for developers to integrate into their apps or websites. Offering a similar interface to that of Google Docs, Hackpad allows users to login to the service through their Google, email, and Facebook credentials. To learn more about the Hackpad API visit the Hackpad site as well as the Hackpad API blog post.
The new Contentful API seeks to disrupt current content management workflows with an API-first approach. The API service uses a presentation agnostic platform to allow content to be distributed across any device or application. Built from the knowledge and experience gained when Contentful founders managed StorageRoom – a platform used by over 1,000 international customers to push content to applications – the new Contentful has taken the lessons learned to create a wholly new content management system.
Our API directory now includes 31 CMS APIs. The newest is the Contentful API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the WordPress.com API. We list 3 WordPress.com mashups. Below you’ll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of CMS APIs.
