Hello folks! I am excited about introducing ApiHome.


What is it?

It's an OpenAPI based testing tool that runs generated negative test cases


Why OpenAPI ?

The OpenAPI specification was known as Swagger until version 3.0 got released in 2017 and it was renamed to OpenAPI. It’s a language-agnostic way to describe a RESTful API that can be used to generate code-stubs and documentation.


How does it Work?

  1. Start with the default template or upload an OpenAPI spec or Postman collection
  2. Fix validation errors
  3. Run API Tests


Use-cases:

  1. API Inventory
  2. Business-logic testing(negative test-cases)
  3. Security testing


Why ApiHome?

  • Easier to navigate UI
  • To the point Spec validation errors let you get documentation out of the way


Upcoming Features:

  • Code repository crawler to discover API assets
  • More fuzzing rules & examples to fix validation errors quickly
  • CI/CD integration


ApiHome is in Beta and is free to use! I would love for you guys to give it a shot and share feedback.


Head over to https://apihome.io to get started
