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 Paw?

Paw is a full-featured and beautifully designed Mac app that makes interaction with REST services delightful. Either you are an API maker or consumer, Paw helps you build HTTP requests, inspect the server's response and even generate client code.

What is Tyk Cloud?

            How developers use Charles, Paw, and Tyk Cloud
            Avatar of Jack Littleton
            Jack Littleton uses PawPaw

            Paw allows me to interface with an API prior to starting UI work that requires the API. This helps me understand what data is required to be sent to the API, and what to expect back.

            In cases where I develop the API, Paw helps me to test as I'm developing, ensuring changes I make aren't breaking other parts of the API.
