Daily API RoundUp: UN Humanitarian Response, Divvy, PeopleKeys, AccuZIP, H20Flint

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 such as Transportation, Email, and Financial. Featured today are some smart city APIs: One for finding clean water in Flint, Michigan, and three more for use with the City of Chicago's bike sharing program. Take a look at what's new.

APIs

Divvy is the City of Chicago's bike sharing program. We've added three APIs from Divvy for developer use:
