We have two available to showcase API Apps:

  1. API Todo List: A simple REST API that would host the data for a todo list application. Read the Swagger document and then use the built in testing tools, or a 3rd party API testing suite like postman, to play with the API.
  2. API Contacts List:  A combination single page application and backend API. Experiment with adding and removing contacts from your list, and then use the Swagger doc to experiment with the underlying API calls.contactslistwebpageSwagger UI showing the underlying API in the contacts list API
