Use the Mnemotechniques API allows you to automatically create acronyms or initialisms for different titles. These automatic abbreviation services might be useful if you have a graph and need to limit the text seen in the graph. You might also use it for table columns when character length needs to be minimized. The results returned suggest acronyms for a given phrase, and you can use the API to help maintain a list of created acronym-phrase mappings.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
