Try Google APIs From the Browser with Google APIs Explorer

Today Google announced the Google APIs Explorer, a Web-based interface for experimenting with the company’s various APIs. So far only seven APIs are supported, Google the company promises to add more soon.

The Explorer lets you select a supported service and view a list of supported methods. You can then select a method, fill in the parameters, execute the command and get the results. It seems like a great way to try out an API without writing code. Google’s announcement has a few sample requests to get started with.

The following APIs are currently supported:

  • Buzz APIs
  • CustomSearch API
  • Diacritize API
  • Moderator API
  • Search API for Shopping
  • Translate API
  • URL Shortener API

Google also launched an interface for working with the Google Apps API without writing code.
