Daily API RoundUp: Square Connect, Wintersmith, SiteSnapr, CloudViz, Ingresso, Ukulele Chords

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 editor@programmableweb.com.

Eleven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Auto, Music, Visualizations, and Monitoring. One highlight today are CloudViz APIs which can be used to generate diagram images from DOT based graph descriptions. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
