API Taster: Visually Test Rails Application API

| 1 min read

Like a lot of places, at Locomote we are building a platform that is API-based. As much as I like having comprehensive test suites, I often feel the need to manually test API endpoints to see exactly what the responses are.

Tools such as Postman solves part of the issue: they allow us to quickly test API endpoints without messing with cURL.

But as a lazy developer, I want more. ;)

I want something that:

  • automatically generates API endpoints from Rails routes definition
  • defines input params as easy as defining routes
  • has input params that can be shared with test factories

And so API Taster was born. Please check it out to see how you can use it.
