Daily API RoundUp: GitHub, WorldCup 2018, Google Street View

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 APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Marketing, Mapping, and Weather. Highlights include the GitHub Checks API, which gives developers to build solutions for Continuous Integration, Linting and acceptance testing. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
