SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for the connected world, has announced a new APIMATIC plugin is available for SmartBear’s Ready! APIthat allows developers to generate a high-quality SDK in multiple languages from the service description inside Ready! API. APIMATIC not only reduces SDK development and maintenance costs, but encourages API usage and promotes share understanding among developer communities of all major programming languages, including Java, Objective-C, C#, PHP, Python, Ruby and AngularJS. APIMATIC is an automatic SDK generator that helps developers consuming RESTful APIs.

“API businesses prosper when their developers succeed, and developers’ success is proportional to ‘readiness’ of an API and ‘easiness’ of its consumption,” said S. Adeel Ali, Co-Founder & CEO at “This combination of readiness and easiness is now available with the APIMATIC plug-in for Ready! API. This enables businesses to have rock solid APIs ready for production, and it’s made easy for developers to be consumed in their favorite environment with less code, in less time, with less effort and more fun.”

APIMATIC’s customizable codegen engine generates quality code for public, private and internal APIs with flexible settings and is available to run behind a firewall as well as on the Internet cloud. With the plugin, developers can import APIs from, including more than 8,000 open APIs, and test them in Ready! API, as well as export to from within Ready! API. Automatic SDK generation enables developers to quickly back API changes with up-to-date SDKs, alleviating support requests that originate from buggy, out-of-date and missing SDKs.

“Adding this powerful new capability to Ready! API means API providers and consumers alike have the convenience of generating an SDK for any API they are working with,” said Lorinda Brandon, Director of API Partner Development at SmartBear. “APIMATIC’s easy-to-use code generator allows developers to quickly spin up SDKs in a variety of languages as well as contribute those SDKs to for further visibility.”

SmartBear has collaborated with several API product companies with various plugins currently available on the SmartBear Developer Network (SDN), allowing a community of users and partners to freely build integrations and plugins to further extend the functionality of SmartBear’s software quality tools.
