API Blueprint vs Rest.li: What are the differences?

Developers describe API Blueprint 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. On the other hand, Rest.li is detailed as "A REST+JSON framework for robust, scalable service architectures, by LinkedIn". Rest.li is an open source REST framework for building robust, scalable RESTful architectures using type-safe bindings and asynchronous, non-blocking IO. Rest.li fills a niche for applying RESTful principals at scale with an end-to-end developer workflow for buildings REST APIs that promotes clean REST practices, uniform interface design and consistent data modeling.

API Blueprint and Rest.li belong to "API Tools" category of the tech stack.

API Blueprint and Rest.li are both open source tools. It seems that API Blueprint with 7.52K GitHub stars and 2.07K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Rest.li with 1.94K GitHub stars and 392 GitHub forks.

            RAML
            RESTful API Modeling Language (RAML) makes it easy to manage the whole API lifecycle from design to sharing. It's concise - you only write what you need to define - and reusable. It is machine readable API design that is actually human friendly.
            Apiary
            It takes more than a simple HTML page to thrill your API users. The right tools take weeks of development. Weeks that apiary.io saves.
