is a great app worth checking out if you're building an API and you need a quick way to test your endpoints. It's Mac only and is a paid app, which might make people consider an alternative like Postman
. However, I'd recommend Paw for its stunning UI that allows you to visually build queries and APIs.
One cool feature of Paw is the code generator
, which takes all of the information you enter about your API endpoint and generates the code required to query that endpoint. It even has a bunch of third party extensions
to allow you to generate code for all sorts of contexts.
Another neat feature is Paw's environment
support which allows you to create variables that can be used in your requests (such as API URLs and API keys) and easily switch them for different environments (e.g. local, staging, production, etc).
