Google announced API explorer to help new developers to get started with Google API without any programming.The latest tool from google aimed at new developers wanting to try out Google API’s right from the browser.You can execute the api calls and can analyse the response data that help you learn API’s working.
API Explorer is much like the live demo of API’s,If you want to use the API in your code you need to get the API key but using explorer you dont need to have key but still you can use the functionality.Suppose if you want to call goo.gl api to expand the shortened URL you can simply provide the shortened URL and execute the goo.gl api to check the response from the API.The JSON response code is also displayed.
Try API explorer, not all API’s are available right now, you can access BUZZ,translate,goo.gl,shopping API’s all the methods and parameters.
