Somerville — November 10, 2020 —
SmartBear, a leading provider of software development and quality tools, has released the SwaggerHub extension for Visual Studio (VS) Code, expanding the breadth of development options for API designers. The new extension expands the growing list of options for API designers offered with SwaggerHub, including the SwaggerHub Code Editor, SwaggerHub Visual Editor, and SwaggerHub CLI Tool.
“We have made it our mission to meet development teams where they’re at and to provide easy integrations to the ecosystem of tools and environments in which they are already working,” said Christian Wright, President and Chief Product Officer of SmartBear. “The API development lifecycle has become such a critical and fast-growing part of software development, and our extension for VS Code is one way we’re making it easier to seamlessly match developer preferences and allow them to focus on delivering high quality software faster.”
“Many of our developers prefer to work in VS Code for its flexibility and ease of use,” said Alex Savage, Head of Platforms for Advanced, a leading UK-based provider of software and services. “With the SwaggerHub extension for VS Code, we can see all our API definitions in one place, plus have the ability to push and pull API definitions to SwaggerHub. This is absolutely an essential plug-in for anyone doing API design work.”
