API Development Services
RESTful API usage is on the rise and companies of all sizes continue to rely on APIs in 2023. We build RESTful APIs for mobile and web applications to accelerate your digital transformation. Leveraging APIs, Optimum Web enables you to offer new products and services for your partners and customers.
We Maximise the Potential of Your Applications with RESTful API and gRPC
For web applications, the most commonly recommended type of API is a Representational State Transfer (RESTful) API. RESTful APIs are designed to be lightweight, scalable, and easy to develop, making them a good choice for web applications that need to handle large amounts of traffic.
RESTful APIs use HTTP methods such as GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE to interact with resources, and they typically use JSON or XML formats to transfer data. This makes it easy to integrate RESTful APIs with web applications built on any platform, including mobile, desktop, and cloud-based systems.
In addition, RESTful APIs have a standard set of guidelines and best practices, making it easier for developers to follow consistent design patterns and create APIs that are easy to understand and use. Overall, RESTful APIs are a reliable and flexible option for building web applications.
Benefits of using RESTful API
- Scalability: RESTful API is designed to scale easily and handle large amounts of traffic, making it an ideal choice for high-traffic applications.
- Flexibility: With RESTful API, you can easily add or modify features without disrupting the overall architecture of your application.
- Improved performance: RESTful API is lightweight and can be cached, leading to faster response times and improved performance.
- Simplified development: RESTful API uses standard HTTP methods and protocols, making it easier to develop and integrate with existing systems.
- Platform-agnostic: RESTful API can be used on any platform, including web, mobile, and desktop applications.
Benefits of using gRPC
- High performance: gRPC uses a binary protocol that is faster and more efficient than traditional HTTP-based APIs.
- Language agnostic: gRPC supports multiple programming languages, making it easy to integrate with different systems and platforms.
- Simplified development: gRPC provides automatic code generation and a simple API, reducing the amount of boilerplate code needed to build applications.
- Bi-directional streaming: gRPC allows for bi-directional streaming, making it easy to build real-time applications such as chat, gaming, and video conferencing.
- Interoperability: gRPC supports multiple platforms and languages, making it easy to build applications that can communicate with each other regardless of the technology used.
Benefits of using GraphQL API
- Increased efficiency: GraphQL APIs enable clients to fetch only the data they need, eliminating the need for multiple API calls to retrieve related data. This reduces network overhead and improves performance.
- Flexibility: GraphQL APIs allow clients to specify the shape and structure of the data they need, providing greater flexibility and control over the data returned.
- Simplified API development: With GraphQL, API developers can define a single schema that describes the entire API, making it easier to develop, maintain, and evolve the API over time.
- Better developer experience: GraphQL provides a strongly-typed schema, comprehensive documentation, and introspection capabilities, making it easier for developers to understand and work with the API.
- Improved client-side caching: With GraphQL, clients can cache data at the field level, reducing the amount of redundant data transferred over the network and improving app performance.
- Compatibility with multiple platforms and languages: GraphQL is compatible with multiple platforms and languages, making it easier to integrate with existing systems and services.
Overall, GraphQL offers a more efficient, flexible, and developer-friendly approach to building APIs, making it a popular choice for many modern applications.
We build backends using all three types of APIs
APIs are Key to Modern Software Delivery
Our developers have hands-on experience in API development to help you design, document, and deliver world-class APIs, serving a huge range of scenarios, users, and processes in a fraction of the time.
We use Rust, Python, NodeJS, PHP and GoLang to build powerful, infinitely scalable, secure, and easily supported APIs to build applications faster.
Mobile Applications in the Time of API Economy
APIs within software applications used to be a way of making the parts of an application work securely with one another. However, as a result of the API revolution, they are now treated more like independent monetizable products than code or system intermediaries. APIs have now become essential tools to drive business value and help realize your vision and achieve business goals.
Optimum Web API design and development service portfolio is intended to add strategic and technology thought and creativity to the development of your app, so that APIs can be used to create new business opportunities, and to improve products, services, and operations.
Whether your organization is in the early, developing, or maturing stages of a digital transformation, making data available on any device, anytime, anywhere via API development.
Optimum Web is here to help you move to the new reality of the API economy, developing mobile apps – powered by APIs, bridging the communication gap between backend systems and modern mobile applications.
API-Driven Web Applications Development
Cloud platforms and frameworks to formulate digital responses to market opportunities at greater speed and able to face growing expectations for software customization.
Here at Optimum Web, we have fully adopted the newer approach to web application development based on the utilization of an API-Driven model.
The API-driven architecture allows enhanced scalability, where “nodes” (admin interface, web experience, future mobile, and other apps) are independent codebases all sharing a common data access point and leveraging increased connectivity.
10 Benefits of API-driven Web Applications Architecture
- Infinite scalability – vertical and horizontal.
- Flexibility & Modularity.
- Enhanced connectivity.
- Lower dependency of components.
- Quick prototyping.
- Long-term sustainability.
- Multi-channel distribution.
- Availability to third-party applications.
- Simplified maintenance.
- Plug & Play technology
