API Builder for Mac/Windows/Linux?

It appears building APIs (currently restful) is on my near-horizon, does anyone have a favorite IDE/workflow? I will work on OS X, colleagues will run a combination of Win/Linux.

Thanks!

I am guessing Javascript and/or Python. I haven't really taken apart the app on our side. It's a fairly typical mobile web app involving Javascript/Python/GraphQL from my current level of exposure, not sure of any frameworks, etc, and I also do not know how it will be received and parsed on our end. That will come as I get more deeply involved, however any suggestions swift(er) dev are welcome. Currently, I know there'll be tapping of a documented Qualtric end and a complete fustercluck of a poorly developed Salesforce instance end.

ETA: Thanks for the response it's been a very long day.

You might take a look at the postman app. It can be helpful for firing off api requests. That said, there should be some sort of test suite which verifies the api endpoints. If it isn't there - good luck! :-) Seriously though, you'll want some scripted testing tools.

PyCharm with Anadoda is very popular.
