Anyone know any tools for quickly creating interfaces for APIs? Like if I have a list of posts, I want to display them as a list with title and content.

    just google JSON to HTML table.
    Something bound to show up.

    Otherwise I'm lost as to what you want?

    @stop @C0D4 I was thinking some application that would allow me, or anyone without much coding experience, to build an interface for data. Like displaying a list with images, or an individual item. I know it's kind of niche, but I though someone might know of something.

    @ScriptCoded html with javascript and REST with json is the simplest i know.

    @stop Though I want someone with limited or no coding experience to be able to do it. A visual editor of some sort.

    Take a look at KnockoutJS, it's pretty simple to bind JS variables to HTML elements and have them repeat their contents for each element in an array, for example.

    EDIT: Just saw your latest comment. KnockoutJS is not a visual editor, so maybe it's not what you want.

    @ScriptCoded I haven't come across something that could handle it as a visual representation.

    JSON is pretty straight forward to understand by its self if prettified otherwise due to the complexity api responses could be (multiple layers / dimensions) iteration to a standard view is usually something you write yourself or pull out the data you need and output as necessary.

    Did some googling and this could work as a quick hack - just copy your response and it'll will create a table for you

    @C0D4 I was thinking that a colleague would be using it, so as simple as possible is good. That transformer looks like a step in the right direction. I'm thinking perhaps excel could do it?

    @cmarshall10450 Yeah that's kind of what @C0D4 suggested. Thanks

    @ScriptCoded yeah. Just some alternatives. I don't think there's anything else that will handle general json structures as the response from an api is up to the api designer. I don't know of anyway for excel to handle json input.

    Postman might be ideal, depending on your situation.
