I always used and develop API with RapidAPI so also recommend to new people to use and learn about APIs. If we discuss about new user it's so easy to learn and develop API free of cost as well as paid subscription. My experience with RapidAPI is awesome.

Cons
Google
  • Only one user can be active in a proxy at a time
  • No version control
  • Prohibited from using JSON.stringify on Apigee objects (tokens)
  • Debugging is difficult
  • Unable to rename or delete policies without bumping revision
  • Why would anyone give a js policy one name, display name something else, and script a different name?
  • 'Trace' limited to only 20 transactions
  • UI allows users to add target servers, but users must utilize the api to turn on SSL.
  • I'm sure there's more, they just aren't coming to mind right now.
  • Apigee forgets (expires?) your password at random intervals without notice. Every few weeks, or days, sometimes even three times in one day, I'll attempt to login to Apigee and my password will be 'wrong'. I've reset my password and Apigee still claims it's wrong. I've had to reset my password three times before it finally let me log back in.

  • Little issue for new user while designing new API through user interface of RapidAPI.
  • Not sure about the security of the API so not possible for prodcution mode.

I am not the one deciding whether to use apigee or not really. But personally, I would recommend the use of it as developing APIs on it is easy. And as a mediator between backend servers, we could easily modify request and responses in it without touching any backend code while having a centralize gateway to access our backend APIs too.

Quite hard to get support, at least on the coding side, when we encounter blockers. But general concerns, they would schedule a call to you for them to get a whole picture of your concern. Albeit in my experience, bad really as they haven't replied about the progress, but otherwise seems to have been fixed.

Apigee is the best in the market in terms of API Analytics Apigee is having wonderful Documentation with short videos Security is a major concern and Apigee provides an easily configurable policy to secure API Quota and rate-limit is again very easy to configure on every API basis It provides various policies to transform the response from one form to another form e.g. JSON to XML or XML to JSON

Firebase is also good tools for user who are working on APIs but the marketplace of Rapid API is non comparative. Like how it's creates APIs and testing phase, supporting of multiple API types etc. These features makes Rapid API very unique from else ones.

Return on Investment
Google
  • As a public entity it is hard to say how much ROI we can have. We have yet to create a billing and ROI plan. We are thinking of other ways to create ROI, possibly through data/service barter.

  • Front-end Devs like me not want to invest money for back-end so Rapid API is best option to try and design API's in very easy way.
  • In case of using the more of Rapid API we can take subscription which is also on nominal prices.
  • For front-end devs not need to learn back-end skills in Rapid API.
