There is a new movement in API documentation, one that is moving beyond static, often boring documentation and into a new realm where API documentation is live and interactive. Following in the footsteps of API explorers these new interactive documentation formats like Swagger and Mashery I/O Docs, allow developers to authenticate, navigate endpoints and make requests with live responses returned.
In a little over a year, interactive API documentation has gone from a new innovation of a select few APIs, to being a standard offering among many of the leading APIs in the space. There is no better way to get your developers acquainted with an API, than allowing them to interact with your API while reading documentation--turning API documentation into a hands on experience.
