Owlet Update (September Edition)
Hello folks, welcome to our new monthly format for the Owlet Update! This edition covers our exciting product updates from the last 6 weeks or so, and going forward we’ll be publishing on a monthly cadence. Lots of exciting updates to share since we last wrote: lots of new features (of both the big and small variety) and a new partnership. Read on below, and stay tuned for the next edition soon!
- New ways to personalize your docs 🚀 Behind every API call is a unique developer, so why should every one of them have the same experience in your developer hub? That's why we rolled out Personalized Docs, a brand-new way to surface custom data (like API keys) for your users. If you navigate to your project dashboard, you'll find a brand new page to help you set up the Personalized Docs Webhook. Want to learn more? Check out the docs and the announcement on our blog!
- A new staging experience 🎭 By now you might be aware of Staging, an Enterprise environment that enables greater control around how your team previews and publishes changes. In the last month, we've rolled out a completely new Staging experience in the dashboard. Administrators now have far more flexibility and visibility around how changes are published. Check out our blog post and our docs to get the details.
- A brand new partnership 🤝 We announced a new partnership with our friends over at Amazon Web Services (AWS). Now, Amazon API Gateway users can leverage AWS's new integration to quickly get set up with a brand spankin' new developer hub on ReadMe. Check out our announcement and the AWS integration docs for more information.
- New OpenAPI extensions ✨ We recently rolled out a few new OpenAPI extensions to give you greater flexibility over how your API reference looks:
- A new
installoption for custom code samples, which surfaces any helpful installation steps that are required for your users to get started with your code sample.
- A new flag for enabling/disabling API Metrics capabilities in your API reference.
- A new
- Glossary/Variables autocomplete in the editor ✍️ We now have autocomplete support for glossary items and variables in the editor. If you have our new editor experience, type
<<and your editor will show you a dropdown list of options to select from. If you don't have access to our new editor but wish to try it out (and sign up for any of our other upcoming betas 👀), fill out this form. ✍️
- Email Improvements 📧 In the last few weeks, you may have noticed that emails from ReadMe are a little bit cleaner and more readable. That's no coincidence y'all!
That's "owl" for now, folks! As always, thanks for being a part of the ReadMe community.
