What tools integrate with CARTO?
Carto (formerly CartoDB) had strong open-source roots, and an early and active community of open-source contributors, which it nicely balanced with its business model. But about two years ago the company rebranded and essentially abandoned its open-source origins, disallowing API access, preventing map exports in non-proprietary formats, and not providing backward compatibility.
If you're a developer, stay away from CARTO.
