this post was one of the two that were listed regarding SOAPI.

SOAPI-EXPLORE is a single page JavaScript application that downloads the latest API spec and dynamically generates a test harness for each route.

All parameters are documented, and as much as is practical, are validated and/or assisted with appropriate input elements.

SOAPI-EXPLORE is always up-to-date and in sync with the API.


Right-click SOAPI-EXPLORE, select 'save target as...'. All done.


SOAPI-EXPLORE is powered by SOAPI-WATCH and is similarly licensed under GPL v2 and MIT licenses.


Comments, suggestions, complaints, praise and adulation can be registered here or via email to

Keep an eye on for all things SOAPI. ;-)

Thanks for creating the QUnit tests - it helped me discover that my app was not the problem - but rather the trouble was with the API server. – Nathan Osman Jun 15 '10 at 7:01
