Amazon API Gateway Serverless Developer Portal

Amazon API Gateway Serverless Developer Portal

AWS Labs has a lot of open source code up on GitHub. This project, “Amazon API Gateway Serverless Developer Portal” builds a slick web interface for your Amazon API Gateway APIs.

Think of it like automatic documentation. It’s a great way to help developers get up to speed with your APIs.

I call out a few more details in the Twitter thread below…

the project has spent a lot of time on deployment. you can roll it out via SAM, SAR, or script

like good docs, that’s very much appreciated

this project addresses a big gap for most teams. they might build out a solid API but how do you get the word out to developers?

having clear documentation & a way to get an API key/token yourself is really important for the developer experience (#dx)

this project doesn't go beyond the basic endpoint/parameters documentation. YOU need to add in the "here's how to get the most out of this API" and other, more in-depth documentation

there's a fair bit of customization built into the project as well. you can adjust the branding and add your own content, like ๐Ÿ‘†

under the covers, here's what the project builds ๐Ÿ‘‡

it’s a pretty lightweight, #serverless build. that will keep operations light and the costs low

if you're building out APIs using @awscloud API Gateway (even if they are internal-only), this project should help you document those APIs & provision access
