Announcing the Marvel API 🎉

Posted 4 weeks ago by Murat Mutlu

We’re super excited to announce a brand new way to bring your ideas to life on the platform – introducing the Marvel API. A powerful way to access the core functionality of the Marvel Platform and build the tools, apps and integrations you need to scale design faster than ever.

We are laser focused on changing how design is done, by making it more inclusive, collaborative and productive. Marvel is used by millions of people with ever varying use cases, from design, to sales, to development – and it’s our goal to keep our platform versatile and scalable.

The @marvelapp GraphQL API gives you the ability to automate, customise and scale your design and prototyping workflow.

We’ve already seen some incredible integrations from our launch partners Maze (Analytics), Niice (Moodboards) and Smartmockups (Realistic mockups) that take Marvel to the next level and it’s just the start. Now we’re handing over to you and can’t wait to see what you come up with.

 

Why build with Marvel?

Graph QL and API Docs

It’s super easy to get started with our no nonsense API docs, located here. On top of that, we’ve built the API with GraphQL, so it’s easy to get all the data you need in a single request.

Dedicated API Team

We hold customer support to really high regard here at Marvel, and we want to make sure that carries over to the API. We have a dedicated team available for user questions via our Slack Developer Community and Email

Marvel for Maze – Analytics for prototypes

Maze is an analytics tool for Marvel prototypes, which helps you define missions, collect actionable insights and analyze how your design has performed.

The Maze integration with Marvel allows you to quickly create tasks and track usage of your prototypes to analyse. Including heatmaps, success rates and even miss-clicks. Simply hand Marvel prototypes to your candidates, track their interactions and map to your goals with zero hassle.
