What is it all about?

The API Spots is an open-source collection of tools for discovering, exploring and interacting with APIs. One of the main goals of the project is to enable non-technical audiences to onboard, understand and use APIs. Read the introduction for more information.

How do I use it?

The tools are bundled as a Chrome browse extension so all you need is to have Chrome installed. Click on the link below that will take you to the Chrome Web store and add the extension.

The project is hosted at Github so click on the button below and file a ticket, describing the issue you are facing.


Where do my data live?

The API Spots Chrome extension is not using any owned servers for storing and exchanging data. This means that all data the extension is managing are stored locally on your browser.

In the case of 3rd party service integrations (e.g. with Github) you will be asked for granting any required permissions.

All locally saved data will be removed once the extension itself is removed from Chrome.

Open Source

The API Spots is 100% open source software hosted over at Github.

Some of the projects in use are:
