API Design – Upgrade to Restlet Studio, the Leading API Designer, Available Now
Latest release of Restlet Studio lets teams collaborate on visual API designPalo Alto, Calif., March 31, 2016 - Restlet, providers of the leading API Platform as a Service, announced today the immediate availability of the new Restlet Studio, the first web IDE that streamlines the design of APIs, from contract definition to actual implementation. Restlet Studio now fully integrates with the Restlet Platform and provides extensive capabilities for crafting, designing and implementing web APIs in a collaborative environment.For the millions of web and mobile developers who need to develop or expose REST APIs for their own use or for the use of other developers, Restlet Studio provides a rich set of capabilities to design API contracts visually, to organize and share them with team members, and to kickstart the implementation of these APIs."As API teams are building and maintaining more and more APIs, they have to rethink their development processes. They need to progressively move from code-first & API provider-driven workflows to contract-first & API consumer-driven workflows. On this journey, taking advantage of a collaborative API designer like Restlet Studio is a game changer!" said Jerome Louvel, Chief Geek (CTO) and founder of Restlet.The latest version of Restlet Studio includes the following capabilities:
- Visual API design: any developer can craft web APIs without being a REST expert, and without mastering the syntax of API description languages such as Swagger or RAML. Through a simple browser UI, Restlet Studio defines the contract of the API, including endpoints, resources with their methods, representations with their properties.
- Projects organization and team collaboration: Restlet Studio streamlines interactions within development teams and between API developers and other stakeholders such as API consumers or business managers. In this new version, all API projects can be saved to the cloud and shared with team members.
- Generation of server skeletons and client SDKs: Restlet Studio creates client SDKs to consume the API and server skeletons to bootstrap implementation for major programming environments - including iOS, Android, AngularJS, Java, Node.js, etc.
