We’re pleased to announce that support for Apigee Edge node.js is now generally available. This GA release enables our customers to confidently leverage node.js in conjunction with Apigee Edge in production use cases. Apigee provides an API platform that runs node.js natively. Apigee’s node.js support facilitates enterprise adoption of the programming language in an API-first manner.
The BaaS revolution has mainly targeted mobile developers, and for good reason. A mobile developer’s skills typically don’t overlap those required for building and maintaining server-side infrastructure. The same isn’t true for web app developers. They live and breathe on the server. So why is a BaaS a good solution for web apps? The answer is simple: time and money.
Interested in building and deploying apps using node.js? In this webcast, Apigee's Greg Brail and Scott Ganyo discuss how node.js works, how it can be used to extend the programmability of the Apigee platform, and how to use this popular third-party framework to build apps and solve API orchestration and transformation problems.
Great APIs are designed to be easy for developers to adopt and to consume. As APIs become the foundation of the new digital world – connecting the apps we use everyday to the data and services that power them – developers are on a quest for high-quality APIs that are built for a mobile world. The best APIs are easy-to-use, intuitive, secure, flexible and lay the infrastructure for new sources of revenue.
Volos is a set of software modules that make it possible for developers to add the common design patterns of great APIs – important functionality like security and traffic management – to their code.
Today, we are expanding the programmability of the Apigee API Platform by introducing native Node.js capability, including support for NPM modules and most Node.js features. Developers can deploy unmodified Node.js applications on the Apigee platform. Node.js developers have access to the platform’s enterprise-grade app development environment including the ability to enrich apps with security, traffic management, protocol transformation logic, etc. using the 30+ existing policies . . .
