It will be more of a “How I released my API without managing a website, servers, users, and payments. With 0 $ up-front cost”
Over the past year, I have come up with a plan of how I could release my own product without having to deal with managing users and / or dealing with payment processing.
It is a 3 steps procedure: 1. Make an API that solves a problem 2. Deploy it with a serverless architecture 3. Distribute through an API Marketplace
That took me about 2-3 days to develop an API using Flask, deploy it via Zappa on AWS, and release through RapidAPI.
