Open Source in Israel (10 minutes)
Day 2 | 11:50-12:20 | A4
In the past 10 years as a front end developer, I found myself creating internal management tools for RESTful APIs over and over again, while in fact, the usage of these tools remains the same: creating, updating, and viewing data based on an API.
I had enough of it, so I created RESTool - a generic UI tool for managing RESTful APIs.
In this talk I'll present how to configure, run, and use RESTool, and what caused it to jump from 0 to 170 stars on Github in couple of months.
