What is rapidapi.com?

Welcome to the world's largest API hub.


rapidapi.com, the world's largest API hub, is used by over five million developers to find, test, and connect to thousands of APIs β€” all with a single API key. We call these developers that call existing APIs API consumers.

It is also free and easy to add your API to the hub. We call developers who add APIs to the hub API builders or API providers. API builders can keep their APIs private and share them with only certain consumers, or they can make their APIs public and optionally monetize their APIs.

Whether you are an API consumer or builder, or both, you can track API usage using powerful real-time analytics and dashboards.

APIs on rapidapi.com can be owned by individual users, or you can add your team (as part of an organization) and the team can own the API. The team can use the tools in Studio to create and manage high-quality APIs, whether or not they are shared publicly or monetized.

For API consumers

It's easy to use rapidapi.com to consume APIs in your application. You can consume any API using a unified format that is easy to understand and embed in your application. Moreover, you can view all of the APIs you are connected to using a dashboard that monitors things like the number of API requests, latency, and error rates. For more on using APIs, check out our RapidAPI Consumer Quick Start Guide.

For API builders (providers)

If you already have an API, we make it easy to distribute and monetize it. Adding your API to the rapidapi.com hub gets you instant exposure to our growing user base, a search engine-optimized profile page for your API, as well as features like user management and billing services. For more on adding your API, see Adding APIs - Getting Started.

It's important to run functional tests and monitor your API. If you already have a rapidapi.com account, your APIs are automatically available for Rapid Testing. For more on monitoring and testing your APIs, see Get Started with RapidAPI Testing.

For teams or enterprises

As organizations grow, more APIs are created, making it harder for developers to find the services they need and resulting in wasteful duplication of efforts. With the average organization consuming more than 500 internal APIs β€” a centralized API hub is critical to preventing resource duplication and to accelerate innovation.
