I'm sure many of you have heard of Postman before, if not go check it out it is an awesome tool. Postman is designed to help you make requests to web servers and control what gets sent in without having to actually create an HTML page or create Curl requests. If you have ever created an API I'm sure you lived in Postman as it is one of the easiest ways to generate requests.
So while Postman is great for simulating requests, what if you are working on the other side of a project? If you are writing a Single Page Application and you are going to be using a RESTful API but it is still being built how can you test your frontend code? Or even if you are working on backend code and just need to mock out a request to another API, how can you test this without actually setting up your own server? These are the types of situations that TestApi.io was created for. We know there are other tools out there like Apiary and Swagger and even recommend them, however they can either cost money or can be somewhat complex to setup and host somewhere. So TestApi.io was created so you can quickly setup endpoints in a few seconds and keep working on your code.
Build and test apps fast. With Realtime Database you can update, view, and create new database records. Within each table you can setup columns and column validation. Realtime Database automatically sets up the 5 standard API endpoints: list, create, view, update and delete. Within a few seconds, you can have a fully functioning API with database storage and validation. All for only $5 per month.
TestApi.io was created by developers who at many times wish they had an easy way to setup a mock api. We got sick and tired of constantly setting up a simple application just to mock out these requests so we created a simple tool to do this for us. TestApi.io has a completely free tier that still gives you access to all features. Hope this simple tool helps you out!
