Downloading, modifying, uploading, in general exchanging data is fundamental for modern apps. Using API (defined set of rules how apps can communicate with each other) is the most popular way of setting up a communication system between external systems.
What makes a good API?
First of all, it needs to be easily understandable and legible for all its potential users. A decent API should have well-documented examples and do not leave any room for guessing. There is a solution that comes in handy if you want to create a solid API, it’s a tool called the API Platform.
API Platform is a set of tools that combined build a next-generation REST and GraphQL framework to build modern API. The server API Platform is built on top of enterprise-proven solutions:
All that powers the modules responsible for API creation, schema generation, admin panel & client generation:
Platform API looks very promising as an all-in-one solution for modern projects and it’s worth taking a closer look. The wide range of microservices offered by API Platform might come in handy for many developers. I’m pretty sure that deeper dive into all its features and using what best it has to offer like data validation, pagination, hypermedia or GraphQL support, and many more can result in a significant productivity boost!
The GraphQL Editor is a supportive tool for both advanced GraphQL users as well as those taking their first steps with GraphQL APIs. Our all-in-one development environment for GraphQL will help you build, manage & deploy your GraphQL API much faster thanks to dozens of built-in micro features. Its graphical interface will also fix communication within your product team. Visualization is the key!
