The Developer Portal in IBM API Connect now has a new look and feel as well as new features that enhance the developer experience. The new theme for the Developer Portal has a refreshed front page and an improved responsive design layout, which adapts to your device.


Responsive Theme

APIs are now displayed in the context of a product.  The new API layout supports the rendering of an API as specified by the API author, including support for the use of markdown.  The App developer can test the APIs either by use of the inbuilt test tool or by using one of the included example code snippets which are rendered in languages including Node, Go, and Swift.

New look and feel for testing and browsing APIs

Content from API Connect is now synchronized and updated in the background allowing for faster rendering of your API and Product pages.
