What is Apiato

Apiato is a framework for building scalable and testable API-Centric Applications with PHP, build on top of Laravel.

It is designed to help you build scalable API’s faster, by providing tools and functionalities that facilitates the development of any API-Centric App.

Apiato uses the best frameworks, tools and conventions in a very creative way, to deliver a rich set of features for a modern PHP Application.

Why!? Because setting up a solid API from scratch is time consuming (and of course, time is money!). Apiato gives you the core features of robust API’s fully documented, for free; so you can focus on writing your business logic, thus deliver faster to your clients.


Apiato comes with an amazing list of features.

Software Architecture

Apiato is built using the new architectural pattern Porto.

Porto SAP is a modern Software Architectural Pattern, designed to help developers organize their Code in a super maintainable way. It is very helpful for big and long term projects, as they tend to have higher complexity with time.

It’s completely optional to build your application using the Porto architecture. Alternatively, you can build it using the MVC architecture, and still benefit from all the features of Apiato.
