Simple DNS Plus now with Swagger
Monday, 02 May 2016
Swagger is a very popular specification format for web-based APIs which can be used with a growing list of both open source and commercial tools - for example to auto generate client program code to access the API (in almost any programming language).
We have just released Simple DNS Plus v. 6.0 build 106 (available at http://simpledns.com/download) which includes an API specification file in Swagger format for the Simple DNS Plus HTTP API along with a copy of Swagger UI - both available via the HTTP API (see links on HTTP API root default page - typically at http://127.0.0.1:8053).
Swagger UI is a dynamic web-page that makes it easy to explore and play with any API that has a Swagger specification file.
