SmartBear, a provider of software development and visibility tools, is giving developers instant access to RESTful and Apache Kafka endpoints with the new SwaggerHub Explore. The free API exploration tool has an easy-to-use interface and accelerates the development lifecycle, allowing developers to easily visualize API data in a single place and quickly evaluate functionality before investing valuable time in API integration. This addresses a major developer challenge and speeds up development of high-quality software with limited resources.
SwaggerHub Explore offers visibility to developers for investigating multiprotocol RESTful and Apache Kafka endpoints. Developers can send a request and receive an instant response, finding out more about API behaviors, saving time and effort during the integration process. Once developers understand how an API works, they can confidently integrate it and go to market with their releases.
As part of the SmartBear API Developer Lifecycle platform and an integrated part of SwaggerHub, SwaggerHub Explore was designed to meet developers where they are in their API journey as well as reduce context switching between tools. SwaggerHub Explore represents the next step in delivering higher-valued tools to engineering teams while streamlining the work they need to do to maintain different products.
SwaggerHub Explore provides capabilities that API developers need without introducing complexity in the SwaggerHub collaboration environment. SmartBear continues to drive an integrated API developer lifecycle platform with the goal of delighting developers, supporting open and universal protocols, and hardening the platform to be enterprise-ready. SmartBear also continues to prioritize releasing new protocols in the near future to provide the best developer experience possible.
