During the course of using and learning the SharePoint REST API I developed a small tool to make it easier to explore the API and to generate REST url's for use during development of other projects.

The app is 100% client side development, deployed via a Sandbox solution and will work on-prem or in Office 365.

The original blog post about the REST API can be found here;
