One tool with all the infrastructure. Just add logic.
Everything you need to deliver a live API:
Low-code IDE, database, step-by-step guide, supporting material and a live production server.
One wizard to build them all
The quickest way to assemble and publish a REST web service endpoint by implementing its web methods through events
Quickly implement bespoke programming functionality and services
Security, message queues, databases – all included, just add your logic
Debug your logic in Linx, test your functionality without leaving the IDE
Instant and easy application hosting
Deploy, manage and scale your applications with ease, in the cloud or on-premise
Host your production API with the Linx Server
Built-in API observability and management
Automatically generate API documentation
Follow these 4 steps to build, debug and deploy a hosted, production API.
1. Complete the form to start. This will automatically download the Linx IDE (Windows exe).
2. Install the Linx IDE, complete your licensing and follow the step-by-step guide to build your endpoint(s).
3. Debug your logic in real time. Deploy your API with 1-click.
4. Run and manage the API in production using the Linx Application Server.
Why use Linx?
Visual, but still programming
The Linx Designer is a visual IDE that allows you to program and debug at a higher level. Using Linx is no different from working with low-level programming, except that it involves larger components, more visual assistance, and lots of pre-made server-side functionality.
Extend & customise
Linx offers a wide range of pre-built programming components to interact with databases (SQL, Oracle, OLE DB, ODBC, Postgres, Mongo), files (XML, JSON, text, csv, PDF) and services (cryptography, message queues, timers) to integrate and extend your API.
With Linx, users can deploy directly to a dedicated server (on-premise or in the cloud). The Linx Server includes built-in monitoring, security, metrics, and logging as standard, allowing you to go from development to live deployment without worrying about cost, maintenance or additional infrastructure.
With no dependency on code, we’re able to translate complex concepts and logic into rock-solid services with unparalleled ease and speed.
An excellent toolkit that includes an environment that supports the development of the collection, transformation and delivery of data from multiple source types.
Linx can connect to MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MS SQL Server, Oracle, MongoDB, and any ODBC or OLE DB datasource.
Can I call other APIs?
Linx can call any REST or SOAP API and supports popular authentication schemes like OAuth2 and API key.
Yes. You can map your own domain name to APIs hosted by Linx.
Can I secure the API?
Yes. Linx supports popular authentication schemes like OAuth2 and API key.
Can I run my API on-premise?
Yes. Linx Server can be deployed on-premise.
