Daily API RoundUp: Game of Thrones Quotes, Hexo, myCloudData, Pincodes of India

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.

Six APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in such categories as Messaging, Frameworks, and Database-as-a-Service. One highlight is the Game of Thrones Quotes API, which can enable applications to query quotes from the popular TV show. Here's a summary.
