API Platform: community & ressources

API Platform in a few words:

  • more than 500 contributors.
  • 3.8 million downloads on Packagist;
  • A core team growing day by day;
  • 6,000 stars on Github;
  • More than 3000 members on the #api-platform channel of Symfony’s Slack;
  • A recognized technological reference used by big names on the web around the world: Orange, Decathlon, Arte or even France Télévisions are using API Platform.

A couple of weeks ago, we updated the API Platform website by developing the community sections. Let's have a look together: 

Top contributors

Because we believe that every community project should value the people who contribute to it, we now display the list of all API Platform contributors on a dedicated page! Not surprisingly, the core team are at the top of the ranking but if you have contributed to the framework, you should see yourself too :)

In addition to this improvement, if you click on a profile, you will have the details of all the repositories on which the contributor has worked:

Events

From now on, you can see the upcomings API Platform meetups on a special page. Stay tuned, more events should be coming soon. For the moment only events hosted by Meetup are added (via their API), we are currently looking to add events from other platforms as well.
