APIs are only as good as their documentation. A great API can be rendered useless if people don’t know how to use it, which is why documentation can be crucial for success in the API economy. But creating and maintaining good documentation that’s easy to read, enjoyable to interact with, and sets the consumer up for success can be extremely challenging.
Creating great documentation requires effort and patience, but it has direct implications on API adoption and maintainability. Documenting your APIs can be made significantly more manageable by selecting the right API documentation tool.
