Open API


The OpenAPI Specification is becoming a broadly adopted industry standard for describing modern REST APIs. Other initiatives like RAML have joined the OpenAPI Initiative.

OpenAPI v2 version is basically the former Swagger - and Swagger provides useful tools for OpenAPI like the online editor and viewer We have also found that this version currently have a good tool support accross languages, so you will find API client and server generation tools for a lot of languages, which makes it quite easy to connect to an API that is described in OpenAPI standard.

OpenAPI v3 adds more features to the specification - for example the ability to describe APIs supporting request/callback pattern.

There is a very good api designer and a good mock generator
