RESTful API Tester

For those of us who develop or work with backends with RESTful APIs, I wrote a little tool at http://x2node.com/api-tester/ that allows using a browser to make calls to the backends, mostly for testing. It’s useful when the application’s UI part is not yet ready but you already need to start making calls to the web-service you’re working on. The tool is part of the X2 Framework for Node.js ecosystem, but it’s generic and will work with any RESTful web-service. Enjoy!
