API Development

Connect and streamline with secure and efficient APIs.

Our Approach

API lifecycle phases depend on your API Architecture, but the basic flow remains the same. Here are the main phases of our approach when building an API.


We'd love our clients to respond to these questions to help us proceed with the design :

  • What are the API capabilities?
  • What type of authentication is to be used?
  • What schema type to be used
  • What is the schema format (JSON or YAML)?
  • Which language or tool will be used to develop the API?
  • What are the dependencies? What are the timelines?
  • Also, to discuss if any certificates are involved in this.


During the design phase, it’s good to have complete knowledge of the purpose of the API. A draft API is designed, and that helps to verify with us before developing the actual API. This phase defines the sample endpoints and the sample responses. Mostly it will be the mocked sample responses.


This is the actual development phase of the API. First, we will add the endpoints and the operation methods to the schema. Starting from the version, URL, path, params, responses, response codes, headers, authentication type, and error codes are configured in the API builder or some specific IDE based on the language used. Once the complete endpoints are ready, we can then generate the API documentation or manually give all the endpoints to the Testing team.


Unit testing is performed in this phase. Official testing is started when our developers provide the endpoints of the API. Now the API testers can go ahead and start testing the API endpoints by adding the assertions and verifying the behavior. Extensive testing is performed to detect the bugs early. Under API testing, different validations are performed to verify the performance, security, functionality, and load.


The CI/CD pipeline is created here, and the APIs are integrated with them. This ensures seamless automation in the production environment. If there’s any API gateway integration, it is done in this phase. The complete end-to-end flow of the API is taken care of. If we have any dependency on third-party APIs, that is also carefully implemented here.


Once the API is deployed into production, it can go through two states based on the needs.

Versioning :
If the API stays in place and the enhancements are done based on the application changes, the API is versioned to track the changes. Proper versioning is a good practice, and this helps in debugging.

In some cases, the API becomes obsolete due to some application migration or retirement. So, the API is retired. Also, in some use cases, the API as such would have been developed for some temporary causes, so once the job is done, the API is retired or deprecated.

What you would expect?

Our API development service can help your business connect its systems and data, improving efficiency and streamlining operations. By creating robust and secure APIs, we can help your business integrate with third-party services or create a custom API that can automate processes and save your customers time.

Additionally, our API development service can help your business increase revenue by creating new opportunities for data sharing and integration.

Tech Stack 


Our API service uses a front-end tech stack built on the foundation of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and React. We use React, a high-performance JavaScript library, to build the user interface and handle the state of our application. React allows us to create reusable UI components that can be easily integrated with our API service.

We use HTML and CSS to create the structure and style of our user interface, and JavaScript to provide interactive elements. JQuery is also used to handle DOM events and make AJAX requests.

This combination of technologies provides a solid foundation for building high-performance, scalable and secure web applications that interact with our API service.


Our API service uses a back-end tech stack built on the foundation of Python, Django, Linux, Docker, and PostgreSQL. We use Python, a powerful and versatile programming language, as the foundation of our back-end. We use the Django web framework, built on top of Python, to handle the back-end logic and data management.

We use Django Rest Framework (DRF) to build our APIs, it is a powerful and flexible toolkit for building Web APIs that provides great out of the box features and makes it easy to interact with our models. Linux is our operating system of choice, providing a stable and reliable environment for our back-end services.

We use Docker to containerize our application and make it easy to deploy and scale.Finally, we use PostgreSQL as our database management system.


Our API service is designed for high-performance, we use advanced monitoring and analysis techniques to ensure that our APIs are responsive and efficient.

We monitor requests and responses, and by analyzing the data collected, we can identify bottlenecks and optimize accordingly. This includes using caching, database optimization, and other performance-enhancing techniques to ensure that our APIs can handle high traffic and large amounts of data.

Our API service is built using Django Rest Framework, which provide us with a powerful toolkit to create high-performance APIs. We also use Docker to containerize our application.

With this approach, we always strive to deliver APIs that are fast, responsive, and able to meet the demands of our clients.


Security is a top priority for our API service. We have a comprehensive approach to ensuring that our APIs are protected against potential threats. We start by implementing industry-standard security protocols and best practices throughout the development process.

We also conduct regular penetration testing to identify potential vulnerabilities and take steps to address them.

Additionally, our API service is built using Django Rest Framework, which provides us with built-in security features such as protection against cross-site request forgery and cross-site scripting attacks.

Finally, we provide our clients with regular security updates and guidance on best practices for maintaining the security of their systems.
