Daily API RoundUp: COVID-19, TeamWave, DroneDeploy, Canada Post

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.

Twenty-one APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Coronavirus, Shipping, and Human Resources. Featured are twelve more APIs for COVID-19 data, an API for Food Truck locations, and an API for DroneDeploy drone mapping Platform. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


If the amount of Coronavirus-related developer tools, hackathons, and APIs we've run across lately tells us anything, it's that the COVID-19 pandemic has inspired housebound developers to step up and take action. Check out the latest API additions added to ProgrammableWeb's Coronavirus category, all created by independent developers.
