Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or source code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb’s directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there’s a listing in one of our directories that you’d like to claim as the owner, please contact us at [email protected].
Ten APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Validation, Email, Sustainability and Security. Also new to the directory is the official Clash Royale API and African bank-based Jenga API. Here’s a rundown of the latest additions.

The API is used to retrieve user data, posts, group functionalities, upload photos, and more. This API responds in JSON format and is listed in our Sustainability category.
Seobility provides Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services. The Seobility Site Audit API in REST architecture enables developers to crawl websites’ data and analyze SEO.

In the event that a potential typo is detected, the API can offer a did-you-mean suggestion. It is provided by an independent developer and requires a paid plan.
