Platformatic enables developers to efficiently develop and run APIs at scale. Historically, API developers have had to repetitively build infrastructure to satisfy foundational requirements, like authentication, authorization, caching, and connection to databases, and have had to manage microservices with technologies such as service mesh or centralized registries. This work is time consuming, undifferentiated, and painstakingly complex. With growing demands of SaaS applications, the amount of API permutations has grown exponentially and has become a development bottleneck. This has led large organizations to create dedicated platform API engineering teams to help teams deliver on business demands.

Our goal is to make API development simple: we aim is to remove all friction from the day-to-day of backend developers. Platformatic is a series of Open Source tools to build APIs. Check out our announcement video.

The first friction we are solving is the tiresome mapping of databases table to APIs that burden any developer. Platformatic DB is a tool that will allow you to create both OpenAPI and GraphQL schemas from your database, without having to write a single line of code. The key difference with other tools is that Platformatic DB will allow you to customize it via Node.js andFastify plugins.
