What is Amazon API Gateway?

Amazon API Gateway handles all the tasks involved in accepting and processing up to hundreds of thousands of concurrent API calls, including traffic management, authorization and access control, monitoring, and API version management.

What is Charles?

Charles is a web proxy (HTTP Proxy / HTTP Monitor) that runs on your own computer. Your web browser (or any other Internet application) is then configured to access the Internet through Charles, and Charles is then able to record and display for you all of the data that is sent and received.

What is Postman?

Postman is the only complete API development environment, used by nearly five million developers and more than 100,000 companies worldwide.

          If you're building an API service, this Chrome extension is a must-have. It'll let you ping your endpoints using a nice clean UI that's built right into Chrome. You can also share your previous requests - a simple way to 'document' your API if you're short on time.

          If someone is having trouble shipping data to the Knowtify API, I almost always share my postman collection. Working through the issue from there is typically pretty easy.

          Not much to say, it's the best free tool out there for testing APIs. Get it.

          API Gateway in conjunction with Lambda has allowed us to become 'serverless'. We have a number of API endpoints that range from simple CRUD operations, through to triggering chains of complex background jobs. Like Lambda, this service has released us from getting bogged down in infrastructure management, freeing up huge amounts of time to focus on solving business problems.

          Postman is a powerful tool for performing integration testing with your API. It allows for repeatable, reliable tests that can be automated and used in a variety of environments and includes useful tools for persisting data and simulating how a user might actually be interacting with the system

          We use Postman in conjunction with our universal REST-API "JCVortex". Postman makes testing edge-cases hassle-free and lets testing look easy. Postman was also a great help to explore the Mojang-API, that we are dependent on, because it is the central repository for minecraft-account-data.

          I use it for testing my Web Api. It's a easy tool for interacting with a RESTFul API and provides great tools for organizing requests. The Newman tool is great for allowing your tests to run in a CI/CD pipeline.

          Used to test API endpoints and monitor API which also acts as an API heartbeat to keep functions alive in Google Cloud in order to avoid timeout responses to Slack.

          We use Postman for all our API testing. Postman is invaluable. We would like to have a team licence so that we can use shared work spaces and test collections.

          It provides me with POST endpoints; I don't run servers and some third-party services need to POST data to my application.

          Excellent API Gateway, some quirks but most are being addressed over time, easy integration with Lambda
