Webservice / API calls

APIs are Amazingly helpful!  We had a great webinar on using Webservices / APIs.  Be sure to check out the 2 hours worth of video as well as the references!.

In most of the below examples I use the below function I wrote to parse the parameters.  Please make sure you add it to your scripts!

Example API Calls

  1. FullContact- Company & Person lookup
  2. Clearbit- Contact Search
  3. Data24-7- Return email address for a mobile phone number
  4. reddit- Return top 20 AHK posts from Reddit; avoid oAuth2 by leveraging browser cookies!
  5. SmartSheet- Extract JSON as well as binary data (CSV)
  6. OpenWeatherMap- Grab the current & forecaster weather conditions in XML or JSON
  7. Yahoo Query- Play with the highly-flexible Yahoo queries!
  8. Yelp- Work through oAuth1 & oAuth2 to connect to the Yelp API
  9. Zillow- Extract some great Real estate data from the Zillow API
  10. Zoom- Vendors often offer APIs to access your data.  I demo connecting to Zoom.us here.
  11. Google Maps– I work through 4 APIs: Directions, Timezone, Places, and GeoLocation
