SmartBear Software has released a new plugin for its Ready! API solution from LucyBot that generates API "cookbooks" that will enable developers to onboard APIs more quickly.
LucyBot helps API providers build developer portals to promote their API's functionality, automatically generating sample code in several different programming languages and frameworks. Developers just need to select the API they want to upload, specify the host, protocol and version. The plugin then generates a Swagger specification for the API and uploads it to Lucybot, where the result can be previewed, modified, and published.
“Being able to easily generate code examples and HTML pages that show how your API will work in the real world is just as important as testing and virtualizing,” said Lorinda Brandon, Director of API Partner Development at SmartBear.
“By joining these two tools together, API providers can now perform all of the essential activities needed before launching an API.”
