API Development Tools

Most of us are here because we’re building things on top of APIs or developing API integrations. That probably means we’re using a similar toolset for playing with those APIs.

This topic is about those tools.

What are you using? What’s good and what’s bad? What do you need a recommendation for?

For testing API calls I use the Restlet Chome extension.

Although I’ve heard Postman is also good, I never managed to get in configured correctly.

Well, I mostly use curl and postman.

I would suggest Advanced REST Client
Talend API Tester

Postman. Every time. So much easier than anything else I’ve tried and has a bunch of cool things built in, like the ability to create test suites, etc.
