Design and Document APIs Faster with New Open Source Swagger UI and Editor


, the leader in software quality tools for teams, is
launching the new Swagger
open source Editor and UI at the Open
Technology Summit
at IBM
in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 19, 2017. The new Swagger
Editor and UI have been optimized for speed and reliability, introduce
extensibility and customization capabilities, and now offer a unified
design and documentation experience for APIs written in the OpenAPI

The new Swagger Editor and UI bring speed and reliability to the
forefront of the API design and documentation process. The size of the
tools has been reduced by 80 percent, which makes for a more agile
experience designing concrete, robust and long APIs. They also introduce
extensibility mechanisms that allow users to fully customize the
interface and build their own functionality on top of the core Swagger

This release merges the Swagger Editor and UI technologies into a single
platform and code-base that is easier to integrate and work with. This
unified experience establishes a common framework for developers and end
users to design, engineer and consume APIs written in the OpenAPI

In addition, the new Editor offers improved, more precise error feedback
and complete syntax auto-completion, allowing API developers to design
and build APIs much more efficiently.

"The Swagger Editor and UI have become the accepted standard for
designing and documenting APIs in the OpenAPI Specification, and have
seen massive adoption and growth in the API industry," said Tony
, Vice President of Swagger Products at SmartBear. "The new
version of the Swagger Editor and UI are a great improvement over their
predecessors, and users are able to design, document and visualize their
APIs in the OpenAPI Specification much more efficiently. The open source
community has greatly contributed to helping us achieve this level of
innovation in the Swagger Editor and UI."

The Swagger UI is the most successful and recognizable tool to document
and visualize APIs. The combination of the Swagger Editor and UI is
downloaded once every 3 seconds. The new Swagger Editor and UI were
re-engineered from the ground up, accommodating feedback from tens of
thousands of members from the developer community, and like their
predecessors, are fully open source. The newest version of the Swagger
Editor and UI are fully compatible with OpenAPI
Specification 3.0
, which was released as an implementer draft on
February 28, 2017.
