  • Integration testing best practices for API servers...
    3 projects | reddit.com/r/golang | 5 Dec 2022
    If you want to make sure the server implements a certain contract like there's an handler responding to a GET request to /API/what/ever I'd rather use something else. To be completely honest this is a topic I'm currently also searching for a really good solution but what I found so far (and looks promising) is https://dredd.org/ or https://microcks.io/ Both support OpenAPI testing so you can specify the contract as an OpenAPI spec and validate your server against it.
  • Faster time-to-market with API-first
    12 projects | dev.to | 25 Oct 2022
    Consolidating the API specification with OpenAPI was a turning point for the project. From that moment we were able to run mock servers to build and test the UI before integrating with the backend, and we were able to validate the backend implementation against the specification. We used prism to run mock servers, and Dredd to validate the server implementation (these days I’d rather use schemathesis).
  • API-first development maturity framework

    In this approach, you produce an API specification first, then you build the API against the specification, and then you validate your implementation against the specification using automated API testing tools. This is the most reliable approach for building API servers, since it’s the only one that holds the server accountable and validates the implementation against the source of truth. Unfortunately, this approach isn’t as common as it should be. One of the reasons why it isn’t so common is because it requires you to produce the API specification first, which, as we saw earlier, puts off many developers who don’t know how to work with OpenAPI. However, like I said before, generating OpenAPI specifications doesn’t need to be painful since you can use tools for that. In this approach, you use automated API testing tools to validate your implementation. Tools like Dredd and schemathesis. These tools work by parsing your API specification and automatically generating tests that ensure your implementation complies with the specification. They look at every aspect of your API implementation, including use of headers, status codes, compliance with schemas, and so on. The most advanced of these tools at the moment is schemathesis, which I highly encourage you to check out.
  • What advice you could give to BEGINNER?

    It's missing the greatest API testing classic Dredd! Other than that the best API testing tool I've used so far is schemathesis. It works by looking at your API specification and automatically launching hundreds of tests per endpoint. It also leverages advanced OpenAPI documentation strategies such as links to test the relationship between various endpoints.
  • Dealing with backend developers
    5 projects | reddit.com/r/Frontend | 21 Jan 2022
    One more tip for the backend developers: make sure the API implementation is tested against the API specification using contract-testing tools such as Dredd or Schemathesis. I specially recommend schemathesis as it's a lot more comprehensive. I recommend you run those tests in the CI and require them to pass before they can merge their API changes. This is the only reliable way to ensure the API works as expected.
  • what are the best tools for documenting apis?
    6 projects | reddit.com/r/api | 21 Jan 2022
    The other thing you want to make sure is that the server is implementing the API correctly. In this space, you can use tools such as Dredd and schemathesis, which look at the API specification and automatically test the server implementation against it.
  • How bad models ruin an API (or why design-first is the way to go)
    3 projects | dev.to | 9 Jan 2022
    Schemaless schemas make testing difficult. Tools like Dredd and Schemathesis rely on your API documentation to generate tests and validate your API responses. A collection of free-form arrays like the above model will pass nearly every test, even if the length of the arrays or their contents are wrong. Schemaless schemas are also useless for API mocking, which is a fundamental part of building reliable API integrations.
  • Is it possible to automate Api testing without writing any aditional code ?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/SwaggerSouls | 29 Sep 2021
    Dredd: this is the classic API testing tool and it's been around for years. Dredd works by looking at your API specification and figuring out what tests need to be generated to validate your API implementation. You don't need to write any additional code, although you may want to create your own custom hooks to customise Dredd's behaviour. Dredd hooks are useful for example to test resource endpoints (the likes of /todo/{todo_id}) and to clean up your database from any resources created during the test suite. I wrote a tutorial on how to write Dredd hooks which you may find useful.
  • Front End UI Test Automation With Mock API
    4 projects | reddit.com/r/csharp | 18 May 2021
    To test the API, I recommend a proper API testing framework that can run a full test suite without you having to write a single test case. In this area, I recommend Dredd and schemathesis. These frameworks will get you covered when it comes to ensuring that the API server complies with the API specification. You may find Dredd a bit confusing at the beginning, in which case I recommend a tutorial I wrote a while ago about testing with Dredd. In addition, you can consider using just-apis, which allows you to define your own test cases for the API in YAML files (so no programming required).

    Having an OpenAPI specification, it's also easy to test and validate your server implementation without having to write a single test. You do that using Dredd. Dredd runs a through test suite against your server implementation for free. The only thing you need is the API specification. Dredd can be confusing at the beginning, so I wrote a blog post about using it which you may find useful.
