Idea 4: API-First Blueprint for a Commerce API - Looking out for some more information

Hey, I’m Sarthak Saxena, a pre-final year student studying CSE at SRM IST KTR, Chennai.
I am interested in working on idea 4.

I have drafted a proposal :
Proposal for Idea 4

I have gone through the API-First Development approach.
I have gone through some OpenAPI documents and got an idea about how they’re designed using the OpenAPI specification.
I am currently learning how to perform mocking on postman.
I have run tests on postman before, so I have an idea of how to perfrom JavaScript testing and use the collection runner.

I am trying to figure out how works with an API. Can I have some more info regarding this? Thanks. @meenakshi.dhanani

Hey @silence_of_reality,
There are a lot of schemas here like Restaurant - Type that we can use to build API specs for the Commerce API. It would be a good exercise to familiarize yourself with these schemas.

Thanks, I’ll go through them.

Hey @meenakshi.dhanani , I have gone through some schemas on I have got an understanding of how these schemas are going to be helpful while building the OpenAPI specification doc. I am going through the OpenAPI specification now, which would enable me to integrate these schemas properly into a specification document. Does that sound good to you? Thanks.

On the right track @silence_of_reality! :slight_smile:

Hi @meenakshi.dhanani, I have made an OpenAPI document for one of my past projects i.e. E-commerce portal for Clothing. It is not a complex one but I thought it would be good to start with this. Please have a look - Link

Would love to see that API in a Postman workspace!

Sure @meenakshi.dhanani , I’ll do that and let you know.
