This post is primarily to let you know about the 20% discount on Paw, but I also want to tell you why I love it.

Paw is a tool for testing APIs and other HTTP requests. That obviously has a finite audience, but I think there are plenty of API developers (and developers who use web APIs) among my readers, so it’s worth mentioning.

Paw has every possible option I could want: easy ways to fill in request parameters, multiple ways to view responses (with configurable auto-detection of text, JSON, JavaScript, etc.), JSON highlighting and exploration tools, saved sessions with call history, the choice of HTTP library to use, proxy handling, and just about everything else a developer could want.

Here’s a quick shot of a test for my Titlecase API that I set up in about 60 seconds.

Paw even has a new cloud service with GitHub integration for API debugging with teams.

So if you do any work with APIs, whether building them or implementing them in your apps and websites, I do highly recommend picking Paw up. Especially while it’s 20% off…
