SmartBear recently released SwaggerHub Portal with new features to customize consumer-facing documentation that drives the adoption of APIs, helping teams explore, design, test, and document all in one place for a better developer experience.

SmartBear released SwaggerHub Portal, SwaggerHub’s new feature to customize consumer-facing documentation that drives the adoption of APIs. The developer-centric tool allows API providers to create customizable landing pages, providing consumers with comprehensive resources for easy implementation. Portal is integrated with SwaggerHub, the popular API design and documentation tool, and Explore, the API client that supports REST and event-driven specifications, allowing teams of any size to explore, design, test, and document all in one place for a better developer experience.

"SmartBear is focused on API-first development, helping developers to solve their challenges when it comes to design, documentation, testing, and adoption. With a growing number of APIs available, providers need help with discoverability and onboarding. To address this challenge, we are excited to launch these two innovative milestones, SwaggerHub Portal and its integration with SwaggerHub Explore, as we advance toward the SmartBear API Developer Lifecycle platform to deliver the best developer experiences in the industry," said Sean Butler, Vice President of Product Management at SmartBear.

According to Slashdata, more than 90% of developers use APIs regularly with 69% using third-party APIs, though discoverability is critical for consumers to successfully implement APIs into their projects. SwaggerHub Portal provides increased visibility and adoption and allows providers to seamlessly onboard their consumers for an improved customer experience.

SwaggerHub's integration with Portal allows developers to generate documentation from their API designs with zero context switching. This minimizes time to market, making their APIs easy to discover and adopt. Development teams, whether code-first, design-first, or hybrid, can generate documentation from Explore, no longer needing to start from scratch when documenting.

"SwaggerHub Portal’s capabilities are promising to be a game changer for our onboarding process and developer experience. The use of the product concept to describe different parts of our system, combined with seamless integration with other SwaggerHub products, means that developers have a one-stop shop to get all the latest API information alongside visually appealing up-to-date documentation," stated a senior tech and developer experience lead at Webio.
