Thought it is in Beta version, there are many useful tools added in the project.

At first, I want to talk about what is steemtools.
What is steemtools?
SteemTools is an open source project. It is developing and maintaining by me. It is a website based on PHP and steem. It contains some hidden tools which are not in the main steemit website.
Nowadays steemit become popular. More than 1 million people used steemit. But there are some problems with steemit.com. Many features aren't shown to the main steemit website.
I think these tools will help people who don't know any programming.
- SteemTools REST API
- STEEMIT Blog/post words & Characters counter
- Withdraw Route check tool
- Withdraw Route Change tool
- Withdraw Route Remove tool
- Check Current Recovery tool
- Change Current Recovery tool
- Request Account Recovery tool
- Check for blacklisted account tool
I will discuss these features later.
- Save Your time
- Free to use

- Add SteemTools Ranking & Reward System.
SteemTools Rest API
SteemTools released REST API for Steem Developer yesterday. Some Parameters has been added.
- get_blog_count : It is an unique API. It is not placed on Steem Nodes.
Steemtools API vs Steemit API
After release the full public API of steemtools, It will work similar to
api.steemit.com. But there is some difference between these two API.
api.steemit.comis a full API node. It works with only
POSTmethod. The user need to make an HTTP request to get data. It is very hard coded. An only high experienced developer can use it. It requires additional software or Web Tool to get data in JSON.
API.steemtools.cfis a child API. Its parent API is
api.steemit.com. It works with
GETmethod. It is also a REST API. People can access this API directly from any browser. A beginner developer can use it easily.
SteemTools API already added in a discord BOT. mcBOT works with SteemTools API.
mcBOT is a Discord BOT which shows statistics of any steemit post. Its full name is Mr. COUNTER BOT. Currently, it shows these three information.
- Total Words
- Total Characters
- Total Upvotes
When a user sends any steemit post/article link to DISCORD channel or DM to mcBOT, The bot reply to the statistics of total words, characters and upvotes. It will help the all steemit community of discord. It will also help those community who arrange article writing contest.
Blog Counter Tools
It is a web tool which will show any steemit blog's total words, characters, and net votes.
Thank you for reading this. Today I have discussed SteemTools & SteemTools API. In the next part, I will discuss all the features and roadmap of these web tools.
