Microservice or API layer creation

Linx makes building and hosting APIs a breeze through a rich low-code environment that can do anything from CRUD on a database to complex business process logic.

Using a low-code platform to develop an API shifts the focus from the technical ability and nuances required for a specific framework to ensuring that the business and logic operate as expected.

What you can do with Linx

  • Build, host, and consume APIs.
  • Expose API documentation.
  • Implement common security standards.
  • Support any logic using low-code.

Common API solutions

  • Backend for frontend.
  • An API for vendors or customers.
  • Endpoints for webhooks.
  • A layer on top of a database.
  • Microservices.

The developer experience

  • Create APIs via an API wizard for quick code-first implementation.
  • Build APIs using code-first or design-first (OpenAPI specification).
  • Auto-documentation of the API (Swagger or Redocly).
  • Host on-premise or cloud.
  • Reusable components for faster microservices implementation.
  • Wide variety of security and authentication options.

API development

As a low-code platform, Linx shifts the focus from the technical ability and nuances required for a specific framework to ensuring that the business and logic operate as expected.

Solving complexity

An API should be simple for the user of the API but can be very complex to implement, especially where the underlying data is distributed across different systems. Linx is designed to handle complexity. A single API can serve data from multiple different sources and implement complex logic.

Backend for Frontend (BFF)

Linx has all the tools for building a fast backend.

  • Auto generate endpoints from OpenAPI, or
  • Specify the endpoints in low-code.
  • Auto generate documentation for the frontend developers.
  • Implement any logic in the backend.
  • Access any data source in the backend.
  • Select from a variety of security and authentication mechanisms.
  • Debug and test using the powerful low-code development environment.
