The Uses of Interactive Explorers for Web APIs
Interactive method invocation has become a common interaction pattern in the documentation of web application programming interfaces (APIs). One of the earliest examples of this pattern being applied at scale is the Google APIs Explorer. In this paper, we describe eight ways developers use such tools in software development, grounded in empirical analyses of the Google APIs Explorer. We then explain the utility of these tools by tying the use cases back to prior literature on programming.
