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

API Platform embraces open web standards (OpenAPI, JSON-LD, GraphQL, Hydra, HAL, JSONAPI, JWT, OAuth, HTTP...) and the Linked Data movement. Your API will automatically expose structured data in Schema.org / JSON-LD. 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 (a Vue.js flavor is 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 or React application.
  • Reuse all your Symfony and React skills, benefit of 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)
