Tyk Cloud vs OpenAPI: What are the differences?

Developers describe Tyk Cloud as "Open Source API Management". Tyk is a lightweight, open source API Gateway and enables you to control who accesses your API, when they access it and how they access it. Tyk will also record detailed analytics on how your users are interacting with your API and when things go wrong. On the other hand, OpenAPI is detailed as "Allows the owner of a network-accessible service to give universal access". It is a publicly available application programming interface that provides developers with programmatic access to a proprietary software application or web service.

Tyk Cloud and OpenAPI can be primarily classified as "API" tools.

Tyk Cloud and OpenAPI are both open source tools. It seems that OpenAPI with 15.4K GitHub stars and 5.46K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Tyk Cloud with 4.84K GitHub stars and 637 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Tyk Cloud has a broader approval, being mentioned in 9 company stacks & 18 developers stacks; compared to OpenAPI, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.
