Why Zato and Python make sense for complex API integrations


This article is an excerpt from the broader set of changes to our documentation in preparation for Zato. Read it to learn more about Zato and the usage of Python in API integrations. Read more

New REST programming examples


As we are preparing to release Zato 3.2 soon, all the programming examples are being rewritten to showcase what the platform is capable of. That includes REST examples too and this article presents a few samples taken from the documentation. Read more

How to integrate API systems in Python


With the imminent release of Zato 3.2, we are happy today to announce the availability of a new API integrations tutorial. Let's quickly check what it offers. Read more

Diving deep into REST API channels


We begin in 2021 with a deep dive into Zato REST API channels. What are they? How to use them efficiently? How can they configured for maximum flexibility? Read on to learn all the details. Read more

Understanding the fan-out / fan-in API integration pattern


The fan-out / fan-in pattern is a staple of more advanced API integrations - let's check out in practice how, with Zato, it can simplify asynchronous communication across applications that do not always exhibit the same kind of availability or performance characteristics. Read more

Configuring REST channels for CORS


With the rise of Single-Page Applications (SPA) in web frontends, it is often the case that backend REST APIs based on Zato need to be configured for CORS. This article will explore what CORS is and how to make Zato participate in scenarios using it. Read more

Multi-protocol file transfer integrations


In many domains, transfer of static and batch files is an important part of systems integrations and a large number of applications produce and expect data in the form of files rather than network-based APIs. In this article, we shall see how Zato makes multi-protocol integrations of this kind possible in a way that is secure, scalable and easy to extend in Python. Read more

Complex cloud API integrations made easy


Cloud-based connections are a staple of modern API integrations - this article shows how, in just a few lines of Python code, Zato makes their usage easy, convenient and extremely effective. Read more

Understanding Zato server startup callable objects


Zato startup callable objects are a means through which arbitrary Python functions or classes can be invoked when a server is booting up in order to influence its configuration or setup, even before any service is invoked. This technique offers customization possibilities in addition to the standard configuration options set before a server starts - read on to learn details. Read more

A dark theme for auto-generated API documentation


Starting with version 3.2, Zato will use a new, dark theme for its auto-generated API documentation and specifications. Here is its preview. Read more
