API Platform is a next-generation web framework designed to easily create API-first projects without compromising extensibility and flexibility:

The official project documentation is available on the API Platform website.

API Platform embraces open web standards and the Linked Data movement. Your API will automatically expose structured data. It means that your API Platform application is usable out of the box with technologies of the semantic web.

It also means that your SEO will be improved because Google leverages these formats.

Last but not least, the server component of API Platform is built on top of the Symfony framework, while client components leverage React (Vue.js flavors are also available). It means that you can:

  • Use thousands of Symfony bundles and React components with API Platform.
  • Integrate API Platform in any existing Symfony, React, or Vue application.
  • Reuse all your Symfony and JavaScript skills, and benefit from the incredible amount of documentation available.
  • Enjoy the popular Doctrine ORM (used by default, but fully optional: you can use the data provider you want, including but not limited to MongoDB and Elasticsearch)
