Mobile SDKs (software developments kits); love them or hate them, they're here to stay. They provide our apps with all sorts of functionality that would be incredibly time consuming to build, and they give us another means to monetize our apps. While it would be difficult to argue that SDKs aren’t useful, it’s also hard for developers to get a good idea of the amount of resources used by each SDK once the app is in production ...
SmartBear Software announced that SwaggerHub, the integrated API development platform, has developed an integration with IBM Cloud allowing development teams working with SwaggerHub to deploy APIs directly to IBM Bluemix with minimal configurations.
SmartBear has introduced a direct SwaggerHub integration with IBM Cloud that allows developers to effectively manage and deploy Swagger-based APIs on their IBM API Connect instance on Bluemix, IBM’s cloud platform, without tedious and manual configurations.
Built for development teams, SwaggerHub combines the power of the open source Swagger tools with advanced features to build, document and deploy APIs. SwaggerHub offers a collaborative API development environment in a centralized platform to orchestrate various operations of the API lifecycle.
Tony Tam, VP of Swagger Products at SmartBear said: “The new integration with IBM Bluemix helps developers easily develop and deploy their Swagger-based APIs to the IBM API Connect instance on the IBM Bluemix cloud platform, ensuring the definition of Bluemix is always up-to-date based on the design in SwaggerHub.”
Bluemix, IBM’s cloud platform, has grown rapidly to become one of the largest open, public cloud deployments in the world. Based in open standards, it features over 150 advanced technologies and services, including cognitive computing, blockchain, Internet of Things, cloud data services, DevOps, security and integration. IBM API Connect in Bluemix offers a native API management experience, to create, run, manage and secure APIs. Using the new SwaggerHub integration with IBM Bluemix, users can design and document APIs and seamlessly deploy onto API Connect in Bluemix.
The IBM Cloud integration is the latest in SwaggerHub’s suite of integrations with external API Management platforms like AWS API Gateway and Microsoft Azure. By offering various third-party integrations, SmartBear gives development teams the flexibility to work with their cloud provider of choice while orchestrating their API lifecycle directly from SwaggerHub.
