Event-driven & streaming APIs are more fragmented than HTTP/REST APIs have ever been. AsyncAPI is a community project to fix this. (Y)

Thanks for this amazing spec, AsyncAPI rocks!!

About

We're on a mission to standardize message-based communication and increase interoperability of the different types of messaging systems available.

The messaging world is full of schema formats and protocols. Some of us prefer to use a combination of Google's protobuf with AMQP, or Avro with Kafka, or Avro with MQTT, or protobuf with MQTT, ... you guessed it.

In production systems, it's common to find REST APIs, GraphQL APIs, and message-driven APIs working together. All of them serving as different interaction layers for the same data/operations. REST is usually defined using the OpenAPI specification, GraphQL has its own built-in schema language, and message-driven APIs now have AsyncAPI.

AsyncAPI is a common language for all the different protocols and schema formats, but we need to make it easy for developers to create new message-driven systems, in their programming language of choice. A quick calculation takes us to 120 possible combinations, assuming we create tooling for 6 programming languages (e.g., Java, Node.js, Go, Python, PHP, and Ruby), 4 schema formats (OpenAPI schemas, JSON Schema, Protobuf, and Avro), and 5 protocols (AMQP 0-9-1, AMQP 1.0, MQTT, Kafka, and WebSockets). We know it's a huge challenge, but we accept it 💪

REST APIs have OpenAPI. Messaging has AsyncAPI.
