RAMLing again with API Workbench: From setup to design

I previously published a blog post in DZone that demonstrated how to design a RAML in API Designer, which is an online cloud editor that uses an in-browser filesystem in HTML5 Local storage. But then I thought of exploring some more options for a tool/editor that can help us to design and code our RAML locally as an IDE (such as Eclipse or Netbean for Java).

MuleSoft releases API Workbench

MuleSoft has launched a beta release of API Workbench. This is an integrated development environment (IDE) allows developers to build RESTful APIs based on a design-first approach. API Workbench supports both RAML 0.8 and the newly launched RAML 1.0. RAML (RESTful API Modeling Language) is one of several API description specifications than can be used to design and document APIs.
