The W3C CSS Painting API is a specification that describes an API for allowing developers to use an additional function to their CSS code. This affects the paint stage of CSS, which is responsible for painting a box's background, content, and highlight based on the box's geometry and computed style. Support may be added for defining the clip, global alpha, and filter on a portion of a box in future versions of this specification.
Eighteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Insurance, Testing, and Sales. One highlight today is the Vertafore API, which allows developers of insurance apps to gain access to previously unavailable agency data. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
