Hello Alyss. Thank you for this blog post, it was really helpful. I have very recently started documenting APIs and am also using slate for the document. One problem I am having is that I need the option API testing like in Swagger, but I can't find any option for that through slate. Is there a way I can get the API testing in slate or is there any other tool which offers the ease of slate with API testing?

So you are using swagger for documentation or looking for a solution like swagger?

I'm looking for a solution like swagger but with better UI. I need an interface that I can change and edit to my own liking.

If you haven't seen it already, check out postman's solution. They have the ability to do contract testing for APIs as well.

Thanks Alyss. We checked out postman but it is a paid solution. We cannot go for any paid solution right now. Is there any open source tool we can use?

If you need contract testing, I don't have any recommendations I could give that I've also tested.
