Reverb Announces Swagger 2.0

Reverb Technologies announced the release of Swagger 2.0, the second generation of the world's most popular API interface. With this release, Reverb has coordinated one of the largest ever open standards workgroups in the API space, combining contributions from nearly 500 companies small and large including Apigee, 3scale, Getty Images, Intuit, Morningstar, Inc., PayPal, SnapLogic, Strongloop and Yandex. Swagger effectively solves the age-old challenge of machine-to-machine communication, which has become increasingly complicated with cloud computing. The Swagger specification, first released in late 2010 by Wordnik (a property of Reverb) has been the most successful API interface effort to date. Historically, WSDL, WADL, and WADL 2.0 aimed to perform similar tasks but were plagued with complexity and had limited adoption across different programming languages and frameworks. The root of Swagger is the machine-readable description format. From this interface, hundreds of projects have been developed to automatically generate documentation, developer portals, client SDKs and even servers. With the introduction of the 2.0 specification, a standards-based and human-readable format--YAML--has been integrated to allow developers to develop Swagger-based applications in a powerful yet simple user interface, contributed by Swagger 2.0 charter member Apigee.
