What is the relationship between connectapi and Connect API?

What is the relationship between the functionality available in the connectapi package and the Connect API? Is one a wrapper around the other? Do new features typically roll out in a particular order between these products? Is there any expectation of feature parity between similar functionality in the two products?

Some examples of things I'm struggling to follow:

  • Deploy git repository seems to be available in connectapi (i.e. deploy_repo()) but not the Connect API.
  • Create content seems to be available in the Connect API (i.e. POST /v1/content) but not in connectapi


In another example, it appears to me from here that there is a variants API endpoint, but I do not see any mention of this in Posit Connect API Reference. Are there gaps in the Posit Connect API Reference documentation?
