ProgrammableWeb has covered Zapier from its early days a few years ago to its continued innovation and success. Today, Zapier took another major leap forward with the release of its new Zapier Developer Platform. We caught up with Zapier co-founder and CEO, Wade Foster, on the eve of the platform launch.

API Integration-platform-as-a-Service provider Zapier has introduced a new website and GitHub repo to collate code patterns for subscription-based webhooks. The site, RESThooks, provides API developers with easy-to-use methods for setting up a subscription layer on top of a webhook. The goal is to prevent inefficient polling of an API for data changes and updates.
This week we had 43 new APIs added to our API directory including a service to connect applications to HTTP URLs, online marketplace for event tickets, RSS feed reading service, application monetization platform and human body 3D imaging service.

There is a category of vendors on the rise in the API space; Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS).

This week we had 98 new APIs added to our API directory including an online dictionary, enterprise collaboration and social networking service, White House petition data, campaign management service, and standardized open data resource.

Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Thinkery API. Thinkery aims to help users organize their notes, to do’s, and thoughts to increase productivity and personal management. The Thinkery API was released allowing developers to further this goal through the integration of the Thinkery functionality in third party apps. To learn more about the Thinkery API visit the Thinkery site as well as the Thinkery API blog post.
