API-Driven Development for both ends
At first APIs and noBackend could sound like a contradiction. We'll show however a practical example how, with minimum upfront investment, you can rapidly prototype, develop and test your application using APIs.
Providing a simple, structured description of your API in the form of an API Blueprint enables the front-end developer to code against a comfortable SDK and use an API mock while developing offline.
API Blueprint is a simple, pure Markdown language for describing Web API, that is designed for humans, but understandable by machines. A whole ecosystems of tools emerged around it, including auto-generated docs, API mocks, automated testing and SDK generation.
