Kandi allows easier discovery and better reuse of millions of public libraries, open source, cloud functions and APIs
NEW YORK – June 23, 2021 – Open Weaver has launched a new platform that helps global application developers to jumpstart their application development. The platform, kandi, covers 430 million knowledge items across public libraries, source code, APIs and cloud functions. These can be re-used by the developer for their application requirements.
While the demand for digital solutions is high, the systems upon which these digital solutions are built are not designed to match this demand. Millions of developers write code to create experiences for clients all over the world. With kandi, Open Weaver aims to improve the way applications are built.
“In the recent past, with cloud and PaaS technologies, a lot of focus has gone into deploying applications faster and creating new applications rapidly,” says Open Weaver CEO Ashok Balasubramanian. “In the infrastructure space, the providers are few, and hence tightly controlled marketplaces can support consumers of these services. However, in the applications paradigm, millions of developers are simultaneously creators and consumers of applications through different libraries they create and share. kandi provides a platform for creators and consumers to discover and reuse application components easily.”
With kandi, software developers can find components for their applications in two ways. Users can use natural language to search for their specific requirements in the search bar, after which the results will show the best matches across all providers. The user can then filter these results by language, license type, provider, degree of support available, industries associated and security ratings. Alternatively, the user can explore software components based on popular use cases to get what they need.
The platform is designed to make it easy for developers to compare different components and choose what is suitable. Information such as quality, security, functional fit, support, programming language, license, updated date and links to the provider are available for each component. In order to use a component, all one needs to do is choose a provider such as GitHub, Azure, GCP, AWS, NPM or PyPI.
While there has been a lot of investment in DevOps streams designed to build applications faster, kandi is pioneering the next leap in productivity by enabling global use of resources. The platform integrates all open source, public repositories, package providers, cloud API providers, and user communities. With over 430 million knowledge items at their disposal, developers can pick suitable reusable components based on their needs.
Open Weaver’s new platform helps developers to achieve productivity by enabling global reuse instead of reinventing the wheel. By integrating all open sources, public sources, public repositories, package providers, and user communities, kandi is the first step towards accelerating digital development.
