Amazon API Gateway vs Swagger UI: What are the differences?

Amazon API Gateway: 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; Swagger UI: dependency-free collection of HTML, Javascript, and CSS assets that dynamically generate beautiful documentation. Swagger UI is a dependency-free collection of HTML, Javascript, and CSS assets that dynamically generate beautiful documentation and sandbox from a Swagger-compliant API.

Amazon API Gateway belongs to "API Tools" category of the tech stack, while Swagger UI can be primarily classified under "Documentation as a Service & Tools".

"AWS Integration" is the top reason why over 23 developers like Amazon API Gateway, while over 33 developers mention "Open Source" as the leading cause for choosing Swagger UI.

According to the StackShare community, Swagger UI has a broader approval, being mentioned in 203 company stacks & 101 developers stacks; compared to Amazon API Gateway, which is listed in 167 company stacks and 62 developer stacks.

      We just launched the Segment Config API (try it out for yourself here) — a set of public REST APIs that enable you to manage your Segment configuration. A public API is only as good as its #documentation. For the API reference doc we are using Postman.

      Postman is an “API development environment”. You download the desktop app, and build API requests by URL and payload. Over time you can build up a set of requests and organize them into a “Postman Collection”. You can generalize a collection with “collection variables”. This allows you to parameterize things like username, password and workspace_name so a user can fill their own values in before making an API call. This makes it possible to use Postman for one-off API tasks instead of writing code.

      Then you can add Markdown content to the entire collection, a folder of related methods, and/or every API method to explain how the APIs work. You can publish a collection and easily share it with a URL.

      This turns Postman from a personal #API utility to full-blown public interactive API documentation. The result is a great looking web page with all the API calls, docs and sample requests and responses in one place. Check out the results here.

      Postman’s powers don’t end here. You can automate Postman with “test scripts” and have it periodically run a collection scripts as “monitors”. We now have #QA around all the APIs in public docs to make sure they are always correct

      Along the way we tried other techniques for documenting APIs like ReadMe.io or Swagger UI. These required a lot of effort to customize.

      Writing and maintaining a Postman collection takes some work, but the resulting documentation site, interactivity and API testing tools are well worth it.

      Two weeks ago we released the public API for Checkly. We already had an API that was serving our frontend Vue.js app. We decided to create an new set of API endpoints and not reuse the already existing one. The blog post linked below details what parts we needed to refactor, what parts we added and how we handled generating API documentation. More specifically, the post dives into:

      • Refactoring the existing Hapi.js based API
      • API key based authentication
      • Refactoring models with Objection.js
      • Validating plan limits
      • Generating Swagger & Slate based documentation

      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.

      Excellent API Gateway, some quirks but most are being addressed over time, easy integration with Lambda
