One-Click Trial on TYK API Gateway with Tin

The choice of technology architecture is closely related to enterprise strategy, business processes, project effectiveness, etc. It is an important part of the R&D process. The complete technology process includes determining the requirements, filtering within the range of options, finding suitable projects, installing, and experiencing. However, once the requirements are identified, the installation and screening process can also be time-consuming and labor-intensive, which has become a major pain point in technology selection. How to save time, optimize the trial process of open source projects, and improve the efficiency of choosing the technology pattern has become a common issue for many developers. The traditional way to try an open-source project Tyk is an open-source API gateway project. Organizations can control access to the gateway and protect the security of enterprises and organizations. To start with, I chose the traditional way, using docker-compose to install it, which requires the Git and Docker environment on the computer.

The traditional way to try an open-source project

Tyk is an open-source API gateway project. Organizations can control access to the gateway and protect the security of enterprises and organizations. To start with, I chose the traditional way, using docker-compose to install it, which requires the Git and Docker environment on the computer.

One-click cloning experience with Tin

Tin is a one-click POC tool from TeamCode platform that automatically builds and quickly generates executable applications, automatically configures the project operating environment, avoids cumbersome processes to install and manage dependencies, and allows open-source projects to be used and spread more easily. How "swift" is the user experience of the applications deployed on Tin? Click to experience TYK and open the clone page.

Click Clone, it succeeds immediately, click Run now. There is no need to have development tools and Docker on the PC since Tin can directly generate and automatically build the required operating environment for the project on the cloud.

In a few seconds, the gateway project is created.

The entire process is very simple and easy to operate, and it takes a very short time, which is really convenient and fast. Especially for some projects that take dozens of minutes and various types of middleware to be built, the access of Tin reduces the threshold for using open source projects and allows them to be tested by users very quickly. At the same time, for companies and development teams, Tin can help them to decide their technology architecture and improve R&D efficiency.


Summary

In short, many open source project communities are still collaborating and communicating based on traditional source code and documentation. The TeamCode platform provides a higher level of communication. For example, in addition to code sharing, you can include code. All software and hardware resources, dependencies, and configurations required for operation are packaged and shared together.


When communicating an error, it's no longer a text description or image, but the entire error page (code + environment) can be shared via links, which allows you to accurately reproduce the error and debug efficiently. In this way, development teams can collaborate remotely and develop efficiently with other members anywhere anytime.
