OpenAPI Specification vs Runscope: What are the differences?

OpenAPI Specification: An API description format for REST APIs. It defines a standard, language-agnostic interface to RESTful APIs which allows both humans and computers to discover and understand the capabilities of the service without access to source code, documentation, or through network traffic inspection; Runscope: API Performance Monitoring. Keep tabs on all aspects of your API's performance with uptime monitoring, integration testing, logging and real-time monitoring.

OpenAPI Specification and Runscope can be primarily classified as "API" tools.

Fitbit, Twilio, and Olo are some of the popular companies that use Runscope, whereas OpenAPI Specification is used by Medidata Solutions, Kapten, and Unmetric. Runscope has a broader approval, being mentioned in 38 company stacks & 7 developers stacks; compared to OpenAPI Specification, which is listed in 22 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.
