Daily API RoundUp: Auth0, Dota2, Sift, Quini, Blockchain, Marvel Comics Android Library

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.

We've added 5 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in categories such as Wine and Email, among others. Also added to the directory: a client Library for the Marvel Comics API.


Quini is a wine ratings and recommendations service that can recognize personal preferences to recommend wines. Users can access data in JSON, SVG, and IFrame methods.
