How to use multi-tabbing and rename symbol in API designer

Have you ever struggled with opening multiple windows in API Designer as you write your API specification or tediously renamed a symbol by hand in multiple spots of your RAML file? Well, worry no more — API Designer has solved these issues for our developers, making API specification development easier than ever. Introducing API Designer multi-tabbing and rename symbol capabilities! Below I’ll dive into what improvements we’ve made to these features:

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.

How to fit an API fragment into a RAML API specification

training talks

It has been a year since we kicked off Training Talks, a blog series that focuses on insightful, how-to videos that address common MuleSoft use cases and FAQs received on the forum. We started out with a simple camera in one of our meeting rooms, with the goal to help developers get quick and simple answers to their questions.

This post was written by one of the stars in our developer community, Thiago Santana. 

File-sharing is one of the most elementary ways to perform system integration. In the context of web applications, we call “upload” the process in which a user sends data/files from a local computer to a remote computer.

How I Used RAML to Embed a RESTful API into DOOM

When I was growing up, I loved playing the classic 1993 game DOOM. This is why recently, as part of a talk I gave at APIs and IPAs, I decided to do a demo of how I embedded a RESTful API into DOOM, allowing the game to be queried and controlled using HTTP and JSON.

I wrote the entire API specification for the project in RAML––a RESTful API Modeling Language based on YAML that allows you to create standardized,

There’s an API for That, Even Your Mailbox

In my role at MuleSoft, I advise federal agencies and commercial businesses in connecting their applications, data, and devices. Those conversations center around building modern Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to create new capabilities. A modern API is one that enables systems to exchange information securely using broadly adopted standards like REST and JSON.  

These days there are APIs for nearly everything, like an API for your thermostat. I can change the temperature in my house from my phone or my smartwatch using an application that interacts with my thermostat’s API.

why apis matter

Today, APIs are an important part of how organizations conduct business––from internal APIs that streamline business processes to public APIs that generate revenue for organizations. The rising value of APIs raises the question: are APIs just another technology fad, shining brightly now, but soon to fade out of the spotlight?

I am excited to announce a new version of our open source API console. The 4.0 release comes with a completely new and responsive UI, improved capabilities for trying out your API, and additional tools to integrate automated builds into your CI/CD pipeline.

The API console can be run as a standalone web application or easily integrated into your own website, making it easy to incorporate into an existing developer portal with a fully branded layout.

Open API and RAML: Better Together

Is it possible to have your cake and eat it too? In the world of API specs, we believe the answer is yes. We have been strong supporters of RAML, the RESTful API Modeling Language, since its inception, and we are if anything even more excited and committed about the value it brings to the API ecosystem.

Last week, we also joined the Open API Initiative of the Linux Foundation,
