New Sandbox for Developers

19 Nov 2015 Sandbox

During the past couple of months we’ve been making improvements to the backend, client libraries, documentation and website.

Today we are very happy to announce the new Sandbox, one of the many improvements that shipped a few days ago.

The new Sandbox will allow users to try the API on a wide range of scenarios without having to write a single line of code.

Just enter a URL or upload a file and click on “Generate preview”. The app will take care of submitting the request and waiting for the response from our servers. The response JSON text is displayed on the UI in an easy to read format.

If you want to test some of the most advanced features of the service, they are just a few clicks away using the available configuration options.

Once you are done testing and are ready to integrate into your code base, you can just copy and paste the generated code from the Sandbox. Currently the app offers code generation for JavaScript, Python, Ruby, Go, Elixir and the recently announced PHP library.

The Sandbox is an open source project available on GitHub and built using React.js.

We are really happy with how the Sandbox turned out and hope you give it a try and tell us what you think.
