ThinPrint Launches API for Cloud Printing Services

ThinPrint‘s cloud printing solution, ezeep, today launched its developer API, which enables easy integration of its cloud printing services for any device or platform. Software developers and companies which previously relied on Google Cloud Print, which will be discontinued at the end of the year, can now migrate their apps to ezeep, without the need for cloud printing expertise.

In contrast to Google Cloud Print, which never evolved out of its beta stage, ezeep has been designed from the outset to fully meet the needs of enterprise customers. The announcement of the ezeep API allows software developers and enterprises to highly automate and streamline backend and web applications in terms of printing. Business processes can then be accelerated significantly. Since ezeep also handles all print rendering in the cloud, hardware requirements at the endpoints can be reduced, saving considerable costs in terms of procurement and maintenance. Technically complex issues, such as communication with the printer or converting documents into all printer languages, are handled by the ezeep cloud.

“Enabling apps to print with our API, is not a piecemeal process, or a tool conceived for individual users, but part of an enterprise-wide cloud printing solution that can be used for all devices and platforms,” says Christoph Hammer, Senior Vice President Cloud Services at ThinPrint. “Possible applications range from restaurant chains or delivery services which print orders placed online to cloud storage, or CRM systems that want to enable managed printing for their corporate customers. The possibilities are boundless.”

Software vendors that want to embed the ezeep API into their solutions can contact the ezeep team at https://developer.ezeep.com. Comprehensive documentation ensures the smooth integration of printing.

Twitter Moves Hide Replies Into General Availability

Twitter is moving the Hide Replies API endpoint out of Twitter Developer Labs, the company’s testing ground for emerging developer services, and into general availability. Using the API developers are able to build applications that help people hide or unhide replies to their Tweets. 

Twitter is well known for the amount of abuse that some of its users face on a daily basis. This new functionality is designed to allow for a programmatic solution to the problem by automating the management of abusive content. In the announcement of the move to GA, Twitter highlighted several pieces of customer feedback including a comment from Dara Oladosu (the creator of Hide Unwanted Replies):

“Some people interact on Twitter in needlessly brash and abusive ways, and I’ve had to manually mute and block lots of those people over the years. I was thrilled when the Twitter hide replies endpoint enabled me to build an app that could automatically shield Twitter users from a high percentage of abusive replies, and how hide replies could be combined with other endpoints to automatically mute or block abusive people.”

Twitter has published a migration guide for developers that were using the API as part of Developer Labs. For anyone looking to start fresh make sure to check out the documentation.
