Restlet vs OpenAPI: What are the differences?

Restlet: Provides tools for developers to design, create, run and manage APIs. It is an open source REST framework for the Java platform. It is suitable for both server and client Web applications. It supports major Internet transport, data format, and service description standards like HTTP and HTTPS, SMTP, XML, JSON, Atom, and WADL; OpenAPI: Allows the owner of a network-accessible service to give universal access. It is a publicly available application programming interface that provides developers with programmatic access to a proprietary software application or web service.

Restlet and OpenAPI can be primarily classified as "API" tools.

OpenAPI is an open source tool with 15.4K GitHub stars and 5.46K GitHub forks. Here's a link to OpenAPI's open source repository on GitHub.
