[WIP] API Explorer template front-end
Review Request #7905 — Created Jan. 24, 2016 and discarded — Latest diff uploaded
An API Explorer allows developers to make requests to the Web API from their browsers without having to download XML or JSON files. The API Explorer will display the response as syntax highlighted JSON in order to be understandable and facilitate development and understanding of the Web API.
In the future, users will be able to make POST, PUT and DELETE requests from a provided form and view documentation related to the resource.
This patch focuses on displaying the Web API response as syntax highlighted JSON, creating a form for POST, PUT and DELETE requests and displaying the appropriate documentation for the resource.
Tested /api/users/<user_name> and /api/users/ which returned the correct information in the proper format, which displayed correctly in a web browser.
