As more business incline to mobile, cloud and web for commerce, APIs allow a variety of devices to access the same power source and use it for any number of purposes. Apigee, the enterprise-grade API management platform, can be an effective platform that offer plug-and-play configurations on API creation. But these are complex problem that developers can’t build easily.
And that’s why Apigee announced the use of the popular Node.js software platform within Apigee Enterprise to build customized APIs and apps. The APIs let developers to easily create, manage, and access Apigee cloud infrastructure to enable their products. The yet-to-be-named tool make it possible for developers to rather write a few hundred lines of code (instead of thousands earlier) that works with the Node.js platform than use their custom interface.
Apigee’s chief architect, Gregory Brail, says that using Apigee’s powerful configuration capabilities and user interface, developers can add Apigee’s API management features, such as OAuth security and traffic management, to these Node.js applications.
Node.js developers will have access to the Apigee’s enterprise-grade app development environment including revision support for iterative development, GUI and REST API for development, deployment and management, virtual deployment environments, visual tracing tool for easy debugging and powerful metrics and analytics for business and operations.
Apigee is taking strides towards becoming a robust development platform. Recently, the company added support for free users that allows anybody to build and manage business value around the new API. Then it revealed a new subscription-based API analytics service that aggregates data to Apigee Insights from public APIs, internal systems and external sources such as social media.
