The Augmented API Design Reviewer
By Arnaud Lauret, December 13, 2020
My 2020 talk, The Augmented API Design Reviewer is about (partial) API Design review automation with the OpenAPI Specification and Spectral.
API Design Reviews can be a total nightmare when it comes to check API Design Guidelines conformance. Hopefully, this can be automated using the OpenAPI Specification and Spectral, a JSON/YAML linter. Using these tools, you’ll be able to focus on other more interesting tasks such as investigating if the API fullfils the identified needs. But that will only work if you know how to build and use Spectral rulesets. During this session you’ll discover the basics of Spectral and how to actually use it at scale by discovering how to design rules and rulesets, how to ensure they actually work, and also by learning the differents ways of using Spectral.
