Today, MuleSoft joined the OAI and open sourced a new API tool called the API Modeling Framework (AMF).

We are excited to make AMF available to the community, bringing together the RAML and OpenAPI ecosystems. AMF provides an approach to developing API that provides for parsing, interacting with, and generating API descriptions in any API description language.

Currently, there are several API description languages, like RAML and OpenAPI Specification (OAS). Without a way to provide tooling that can easily understand any API description language or a mechanism to go back and forth between languages easily, developers had to make a choice. AMF changes that.

We built a way to parse and generate any API specification (e.g. RAML or OAS) in a few steps. AMF makes RAML and OAS interoperable.
