Amazon API Gateway vs API Blueprint: What are the differences?
Developers describe Amazon API Gateway as "Create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale". Amazon API Gateway handles all the tasks involved in accepting and processing up to hundreds of thousands of concurrent API calls, including traffic management, authorization and access control, monitoring, and API version management. On the other hand, API Blueprint is detailed as "A powerful high-level API design language for web APIs". API Blueprint is simple and accessible to everybody involved in the API lifecycle. Its syntax is concise yet expressive. With API Blueprint you can quickly design and prototype APIs to be created or document and test already deployed mission-critical APIs.
Amazon API Gateway and API Blueprint can be categorized as "API" tools.
API Blueprint is an open source tool with 7.52K GitHub stars and 2.07K GitHub forks. Here's a link to API Blueprint's open source repository on GitHub.

API Gateway in conjunction with Lambda has allowed us to become 'serverless'. We have a number of API endpoints that range from simple CRUD operations, through to triggering chains of complex background jobs. Like Lambda, this service has released us from getting bogged down in infrastructure management, freeing up huge amounts of time to focus on solving business problems.
It provides me with POST endpoints; I don't run servers and some third-party services need to POST data to my application.
