In this article we'll look at how the Messaging as a Service platform Ably.io uses gRPC to optimize its service's streaming capabilities. We'll provide a brief overview of the Ably.io tech stack and then we'll look at how gRPC is used to optimize communication in the service's control plane.
In this series we've presented the basics of what the gRPC specification is and how it works. In this installment, we will take a real-world look at how the Source Control Management Service GitLab adopted gRPC when it refactored its server-side architecture into the Gitaly project.
GraphQL Editor announced today the release of Version 3.0 of its flagship development tool. The new release of GraphQL Editor 3.0 offers a variety of new features that intended to improve the productivity of developers creating APIs according to the GraphQL specification.
In this article we're going to look at how gRPC is used by Kubernetes in its Container Runtime Interface (CRI) technology. Bit first, why aren't we seeing that much gRPC on the front-end? It's a question that's been asked many times now and it is one that is well worth answering.
It is entirely possible to make it so that an API layer serves as the master control center for all activity taking place inside and outside a computing domain. In other words, an API layer can be the one ring that rules them all, which is the approach seen in a Kubernetes installation.
In this article, we're going to take a detailed look at gRPC. We're going to cover the essentials of gRPC architecture in terms of specification and implementation. Then, we're going to take a detailed look at the underlying concepts and practices required to create a gRPC API.
gRPC is an API framework that allows a program in one location on the internet to pass data to a distinct function in another program at another location on the internet. In this article, we're going to discuss how gRPC emerged on the landscape of distributed computing and explain the technology.
Postman has announced that its API Builder is gaining the ability to validate API schemas in real-time via a new UI pane that is accessible in the tool’s define tab. The addition of this functionality helps to provide developers with real-time feedback and encourage API specification literacy.
Postman, API development platform, has launched Postman for the web. The new browser interface offers developers easy access and increased collaboration with others. In a press release, the company described the new product as “somewhat of a return to Postman’s original roots.”
Starting with version 1.19 of Kubernetes, developers will be required to advance APIs that they are developing into a stable state within 9 months. These changes are intended to encourage follow-through on feature development and avoid APIs getting stuck in beta.
GitHub has announced that beginning on November 13th, 2020, they will require that developers using the GitHub REST API use token-based authentication. This will now be required for all authenticated operations in replacement of the previously allowed account password access.
SmartBear, a provider of software testing and monitoring solutions, has announced the addition of a new set of DevOps features to its SwaggerHub API development platform. The update adds a new open-source command-line interface tool and aims to improve the platform’s Git integration capabilities.
Design is important in many aspects of development which is especially true for development that drives UX. We've learned that API design can have a profound impact on user interfaces and thus user experiences. Poorly designed APIs can lead to awkward, unnatural, or inefficient workflows.
The best APIs are built with design ground rules rooted in common sense. A uniting governance based on rigorous standards, knowing your target developers well, thoughtful nomenclature, and giving the support assets as much attention as the main product.
API Fortress has announced Bloodhound, a lightweight API debugging gateway that is free to download and open source. In less than 3 minutes, developers and engineers can begin using a powerful, purpose-built tool for API transaction debugging.
Facebook recently released an updated version of the company’s iOS application. Little did they know at the time that an underlying social login dependency would cause several major applications to fail to load. Spotify, TikTok, Pinterest, Tinder, GrubHub, and others were all affected by the issue.
GitHub is hosting the company’s first-ever virtual event for developers across the globe. The event is highlighted by the launch of four new products aimed at broadly improving the overall developer experience on the platform. The new products include GitHub Codespaces, a browser-based IDE.
What data formats do API developers turn to when building APIs? Is JSON the dominant format while XML is a relic of the past? What do the data formats tell us about modern APIs? This article looks at our directory data to see what data formats are the most popular choices among API providers.
One significant challenge posed by digital transformation is the need for organizations to leverage existing technology investments, which often hold business and technical intellectual property built up over many years. The combination of integration and API is a powerful tool.
ProgrammableWeb recently spoke with Scott Ge, CEO & Co-founder at Smartable AI, to discuss the company’s COVID-19 Stats & News API and the challenges related to creating such a resource. The API provides developers with access to data that is validated regularly via a custom algorithm.
Amazon originally announced the developer preview of HTTP APIs for Amazon API Gateway in December of 2019, the company has recently transitioned this offering into general availability. The new HTTP APIs is intended to provide a simpler way to create low cost, low latency APIs.
API veteran Adam DuVander recently contributed an article over at Stoplight.io detailing “A Real-World Look at Building Great APIs.” This post will probe some of Adam’s key points, examining why his ideas matter to developers and other business stakeholders alike.
Postman has bolstered its enterprise platform with two new features. API Builder allows developers to build APIs directly within Postman. A new reporting feature, currently in beta, provides insight regarding how APIs are used throughout a particular development environment.
