RAML vs Autocode IDE: What are the differences?
RAML: RESTful API Modeling Language (RAML) makes it easy to manage the whole API lifecycle from design to sharing. 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; Autocode IDE: Build app-to-app API workflows with automatic codegen. It is an integrated development environment (IDE) for connecting APIs and creating app-to-app workflows. It provides API autocomplete, code generation, easy multi-app auth, in-browser code execution, dev environments, logging, revision history + mor.
RAML and Autocode IDE can be categorized as "API" tools.
Some of the features offered by RAML are:
- Create and pull in namespaced, reusable libraries, containing data types
- Annotations let you add vendor specific functionality without compromising your spec
- Traits and resource Types let you take advantage of code reuse and design patterns
On the other hand, Autocode IDE provides the following key features:
- Autocomplete for APIs
- Authentication Made Easy
- Test Code in the Browser
