Daily API RoundUp: CarbonDoomsDay, GunBroker, MakePrintable, FakeJSON

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.

Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Cryptocurrency, Games, and Payments. Highlights include the CarbonDoomsDay API which provides CO2 levels public data for applications and the MakePrintable API for analyzing 3D printable content. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

CarbonDoomsDay tracks climate change, global warming, and air pollution as measured by growing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2 levels in the air). The CarbonDoomsDay Web API allows applications to access climate change -related data including carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere measured by NOAA scientists from Mauna Loa, Hawaii. The API enables anyone to enhance NOAA's carbon dioxide data by building charts, sensor networks, and more. The CarbonDoomsDay API is listed under the Climate category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Climate APIs.
