Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by! Platapi comes from trying to solve a real-world problem we experience while working in full-stack development. Often APIs are not yet built, and we need to build against an API contract until the real endpoint is live. Having a tool that converts API documentation into working endpoints means: - we get dynamic, pseudo-logical*, mock endpoints, at the press of a button, by leveraging an existing documentation process. - we save time and avoid the need to clean up the hard-coded mock data we created to start building our front ends - less "back and forth" with API contract changes, because we can easily test how a change may impact our application - we avoid escaped prod bugs by testing how our application handles different error codes, load times, and response values-- all without having to redeploy/recompile our application. Ditch hard-coding static mock objects and let Platapi do the heavy lifting. We're actively growing and learning, and want your feedback to help drive this product in the right direction. Tell us what you think, share your testing/development pain points, and let's make development smoother for everyone! * Additional fun notes: - Platapi stands for "Pseudo Logical Artificial Testing API". - We use OpenAI to generate realistic data based on your OpenAPI/Swagger doc fields and descriptions. - Platapi was an idea we came up with for Hack Midwest (a big hackathon in Kansas City), and we won!

Congrats on the launch! 🎉 Being able to customize responses and status codes without any frontend coding or deployment hassle is a game-changer. Great job! 🚀

Seems nice dummy-data generator so far. If it could work also with production APIs, like postman I think I could move to your solution

This is an awesome idea! I spend so much time spinning up api’s just to test out an idea. This will allow for creating POC’s fast, as well as speeding up my frontend dev time. Thanks for sharing this!

Just checked out PlatAPI, and I'm impressed by its user-friendly interface. Does it offer any features for team collaboration or shared projects? This could be a big plus for development teams

Great to see this product, With this, turn documentation into action, creating realistic environments for testing and development. Say hello to seamless integration and accelerated workflows!

Congratulations on the launch of Platpi! Platpi's innovative approach to generating mock endpoints with pseudo-realistic data, and providing the flexibility to override response values, change status codes, and adjust speeds without the need for hard coding on the front-end or deploying additional code, marks a significant advancement in API development and testing.

Wow, this sounds like a game-changer for API development! I've always struggled with creating mock endpoints during the initial stages of development. I'm curious to know how easy it is to integrate Platapi into existing projects. Also, are there any limitations or constraints when it comes to handling complex OpenAPI specifications? Overall, great job on creating a tool that saves developers time and effort!
