Stoplight named a Gartner 2019 Cool Vendor

Stoplight named in Gartner’s prestigious “Cool Vendor in Application Development and Platforms” 2019 report.

Large enterprises embarking on Digital API transformation initiatives are increasingly relying on API Design Management platforms in addition to traditional API Management solutions to supercharge their business.
Poor API designs lead to poor service implementations and documentation which can slow down service delivery and negatively impact the ROI of the initiative.

We believe this is why Gartner named Stoplight a Cool Vendor in Application Development and Platforms. This report highlights Stoplight’s API Design Management platform.

API Design

Model, collaborate, and automate - don’t manually manage thousands of lines of API spec using a text editor. Stoplight’s extensible visual modeling technology is central to the Stoplight platform which has purpose-built automation for OpenAPI (fka Swagger) and JSON Schema specifications backed by git.

API Collaboration

Collaborate, share, and validate your API Designs. Leverage best practices quickly, share common API artifacts easily, and report on API Style Guide adoption across the organization.

API Testing

Automate your contract testing. Ensure that your API Design and your implementation are in synch.

API Documentation

Automatic indexing of your API Designs ensures all of your documentation is up to date. In addition, a cross organizational “API Design Catalog” is auto-generated for quick and efficient searching of API Design artifacts.

API-First Companies Love Stoplight

Our team roughly saves 15-20 hours a week. It makes it quicker to write, and the review process is quicker as well because we can go in and everybody can see the edits. We're pretty impressed with Stoplight as a whole.

When it comes to specification markup and documentation, the order of magnitude has gone from days to hours.

Carlos Lozano

Stoplight has been a serious game changer for JumpCloud’s API development! We love all the rich design, documentation and testing features, which has enabled us to design awesome APIs for our customers.

John Vajda

Product Manager, JumpCloud

Stoplight provides a clean user interface and enables an engineering team to develop a compliant API with minimal difficulty. Other tools don't provide the same details, guard rails, and error validation that Stoplight provides.
