Daily API RoundUp: Docker Cloud, Geoparser, Amazon MWS, Open Telekoml, Kwilt, Tempo

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 such as Location, Time Tracking, Weather, and Virtualization. One highlight today is the meteoblue API for graphical weather synopsis information for locations. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

Docker is an open-source platform to build, deploy, and manage containers for applications. Docker Cloud helps users build, ship, and run any application from anywhere. The Docker Cloud Websocket Streaming API and Docker Cloud HTTP REST API are available for developers and used by both the Web UI and the CLI. The Docker Cloud APIs are listed under the Application Development category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Application Development APIs.

The meteoblue API receives forecasts from direct HTTP requests to meteoblue servers. The API provides updated local weather information for places by latitude, longitude, and altitude (asl), and flexible requests adapted to user demand. The meteoblue API is listed under the Weather category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Weather APIs.
