Test Your API

With Xano you can quickly and easily test your APIs.

The quickest way to test an API is with your browser:

  • Click on the API menu icon.

  • Click into your API group.

  • Copy the endpoint URL of a GET request, and paste it into your browser.

Click the link icon to copy the Endpoint URL to your clipboard.

The Response will be shown in your browser.

In this example, the web browser acts as the front-end we are connecting the API to.

The above Response is formatted as a JSON Object (or JavaScript Object Notation). RESTful APIs pass information as JSON Objects because that's how front-ends consume information. Just think of it as the common language your API and front-end use to communicate.
