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].
Five APIs as well as a notable SDK have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Auto, Mapping, and Currency. Featured today is the MarketFactory Whisperer API for FX trade aggregation, and the Alexa Auto SDK. Here’s a look at what’s new.
Ordnance Survey is a service that allows developers to integrate Ordnance Survey’s maps covering England, Scotland, and Wales with location-based applications. The Ordnance Survey Names API offers a reliable lookup platform of Great Britain’s places. This allows for the discovery, navigation, and routing of specific locations. The Ordnance Survey APIs are listed under the Mapping category. See ProgrammableWeb‘s complete list of Mapping APIs.
simPRO is a business management software provider focused on the trade service industries. The company recently launched a developer which includes instructions and documentation for the simPRO REST API. The simPRO API is a RESTful service that allows users to view, create or edit resources on any simPRO Enterprise Service system, including Mailing Systems, Accounting Systems, CRMs, eCommerce and more. A simPRO RPC API is also available. Both APIs are filed under the Business category. See ProgrammableWeb‘s complete list of Business APIs.
MarketFactory provides enterprise SaaS for currency exchange. The MarketFactory Whisperer API allows developers to access the entire Foreign Exchange (FX) market using a single API. Developers can call the API to perform trades, and MarketFactory Whisperer will deal with the microstructures. Market data and orders are normalized between all FX venues. No public documentation is provided for this API. The MarketFactory Whisperer API is listed under the Currency category. See ProgrammableWeb‘s complete list of Currency APIs.
Amazon Alexa Auto SDK enables users to integrate Alexa into an automobile. Developers can use the Amazon Alexa Auto Android SDK or Amazon Alexa Auto C++ SDK to allow applications to enable audio input, media playback, template rendering, phone control and more. Vehicles will be able to process audio inputs and triggers, establish a connection with the Alexa service, and handle all Alexa interactions. The Amazon Alexa Auto SDK is listed under the Internet of Things category. See ProgrammableWeb‘s complete list of Internet of Things APIs.
Planview provides resource management solutions including strategic planning, portfolio and product innovation, technology, collaborative management and more. Formerly Innotas, the Planview PPM Pro WS API connects with a local PPM Pro application in order to provide project management capabilities. API methods are available for time and expense management, project staffing, reports, calendars, and predictive portfolio analysis. This is a SOAP-based API with CRUD actions support. The API is listed under the Enterprise category. See ProgrammableWeb‘s complete list of Enterprise APIs.
