Visions Of My Perfect API Design Editor Using Electron
04 Jun 2015
I have a pretty clear vision in my head of the API design editor that I would like to see developed. I doubt this will be something I will have the time to develop personally, but I would like to encourage others to develop API design editors using Electron, and encourage a focus on it being extensible, allowing 3rd party, API driven API design features to be added--keeping the editor simple, with almost every feature living as an extension.
I think the API workflow and life-cycle will be different for each API provider, and we need to be able to have the features that we need most, right at our fingertips. Through my profiling of 917 companies, in 223 business sectors, with 882 APIs cataloged, and 407 Swagger definitions so far, I intend to provide API design tips and dictionary functionality based upon popular / successful API designs.
Anyways, back the actual work at hand. I just wanted to revive these visions of my perfect API design editor, so I can add to, and make sure it is connected with the potential for developing the next killer API design editor, using Electron.
