Proxy The Public API You Are Using With APITools And Send Me The Swagger It Generates, Please...
30 Jan 2015
APITools is a simple, open source, API middleware that allows you to “track, transform and analyze the traffic between your app and the APIs”. With just a few clicks you can proxy any API you use, and when you make calls through the proxy, you get a bunch of valuable information in return.
One thing APITools does, that is extremely valuable to me, is it generates Swagger definitions, mapping out the surface area of an API, with each call I make. These API definitions have a wide variety of uses for me, ranging from better understanding the API designs of popular services, to providing API search services through open API search engines like APIs.io.
If you are regularly developing against a public API, can you take a moment to swap the baseURL with one created in APITools, make all of your calls to the API, then send me a copy of the Swagger definition? I would sure appreciate the help in creating Swagger definitions for all of the popular APIs available today. Don’t worry all your work is openly available on both APIs.io, and API Stack for re-use and forking by anyone.
