Apigility: The world's easiest way to create high-quality APIs. An API-based architecture is essential to agile delivery of mobile applications. Apigility provides JSON representations that can be parsed and used in any mobile framework; write for the web or native applications simultaneously!; n:point: JSON storage bins with schema validation. JSON storage bins that won't break your app Set up a lightweight JSON endpoint in seconds, then add a schema to edit your data safely at any time..
Apigility and n:point belong to "API Tools" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Apigility are:
- RESTful or RPC services
- JSON (specifically, HAL)
- Problem Details for HTTP APIs
On the other hand, n:point provides the following key features:
- Schema validation - Add JSON Schema to enforce the structure of your data
- Schema and data locking - Once you're confident that your schema or data won't change, lock them down so your app will never break

Apigility is loyal to the standards; we do not need a framework to write custom REST APIs, anyone can do that; we need a framework that makes sticking with the standards easy.
Every PHP framework should be designed in such a way, that it forces you to think about what you are doing, the current PHP mind-set is too much crowded with lazy documentation of custom-solutions that do not work as expected (because the language gives you too much freedom).
With Apigility it is easy to build RESTful APIs in a declarative way, so that you do not need to write tests for every API Service you create, because the underlying code doesn't change or break, all functionality comes within the framework, that has already been tested.
You do not need to write any boiler plate code, which is huge plus compared to Symfony 2 and the likes.
Apigility has had some reliability problems with newest releases and as far as I know, they do not report which release is the latest stable. But of course, they reached the 1.0 in 2015.
