API Real Time Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space. They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.

AWS Kinesis Firehose

Amazon Kinesis Firehose is the easiest way to load streaming data into AWS. It can capture, transform, and load streaming data into Amazon Kinesis Analytics, Amazon S3, Amazon Redshift, and Amazon Elasticsearch Service, enabling near real-time analytics with existing business intelligence tools and dashboards you’re already using today. It is a fully managed service that automatically scales to match the throughput of your data and requires no ongoing administration. It can also batch, compress, and encrypt the data before loading it, minimizing the amount of storage used at the destination and increasing security. You can easily create a Firehose delivery stream from the AWS Management Console, configure it with a few clicks, and start sending data to the stream from hundreds of thousands of data sources to be loaded continuously to AWS – all in just a few minutes. With Amazon Kinesis Firehose, you only pay for the amount of data you transmit through the service. There is no minimum fee or setup cost.

Apache Apollo

ActiveMQ Apollo is a faster, more reliable, easier to maintain messaging broker built from the foundations of the original ActiveMQ.

Realtime.co

Realtime is a technology that comes to life via 4 products that allow website visitors to interact in real time with the website server. So whether they are shopping online, visiting a newspaper site or just browsing, they can receive dedicated information, be offered products based on a truly individual profile that can be updated second by second, or receive special ad contents pushed to the browser.

superfeedr

Superfeedr fetches and parses RSS or Atom feeds on behalf of its users and then pushes them the new entries in these feeds. Superfeedr implements most of the current Real-time technologies and guarantees an entry detection time inferior to 15 min. Superfeedr has both an XMPP and a PubSubHubbub API.

Beaconpush changes the traditional request-response flow of the web by creating a persistent real-time message stream to each of your visitors. Enabling you to reach your visitors without requiring them to constantly poll your website.

If you think there is an organization I should have listed here feel free to tweet it at me, or submit as a Github issue. Even though I do this full time, I'm still a one person show, and I miss quite a bit, and depend on my network to help me know what is going on.

API Real Time Tooling

As I study each API, and API related service, I'm always looking for open source tooling that has been developed around each area of the API life cycle. This is an aggregate of tooling I've come across and aggregated as part of my API testing research.

Real Time

If there is a tool that you think should be listed here, let me know by submitting a Github issue or Tweeting a link at me. I'm always looking for new types of tools, and get better at organizing them here and making sense.
