I am happy to announce that a new version of API Console is now available. It brings multiple changes and new tooling. Read more to learn what’s new in this release.
API Console is an application to automatically generates documentation for an API from a RAML or Open API definition. It is done by generating an AMF data model thanks to the AMF parser or the “webapi-parser” module.
Recently ESPN opened up their treasure trove of data to the developer community by releasing an API.
It looks great, well documented, REST based, intuitive. There’s also some useful tools around the API like a few helper methods that return the data required for making use of their advertised capabilities and a useful ‘health status’ site.

It’s no secret that we are in exciting times where we’re witnessing an incredibly rapid proliferation of APIs and with this has come great challenges. There is no standard place for discovering APIs, nor is there a trusted partner for API publishers – there are many little players trying to solve small problems in silos and this is leading to more and more dis-aggregation of the API landscape.

The Streaming API went GA and allows to listen to changes to objects in the Salesforce platform rather than polling. Salesforce joins the ranks of other leading APIs such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram that all offer real-time APIs to enable users to consume data in real-time,
I just read a good post by Sam Charrington on RWW titled, The Disintegration of PaaS. He points out that early PaaS vendors had to build out the whole stack, including application server, database, file storage, etc. This locks applications into a specific stack. He goes on to say that we are now moving into a new evolution of PaaS, where some of the component pieces of the platform, e.g., databases, are available from other service vendors.
Application stacks are so passé, now its all about the slice. With the rise of open APIs we are seeing a new breed of application. Infrastructure APIs are cropping up everywhere for doing things like email, FTP, monitoring and management, analytics and application security. These slices of functionality, delivered as services, remove the time consuming need to set up services locally and allow developers to spend their time building their application.
