I’ve been researching systems like this for work and I used airtable’s automatically-created api docs as a top benefit of this service. Some use cases:
Use case 1: If I make an API public and want public users to query my cool API, then I’d want them to be able to know how easy it is to interact with without having to create a login to see the docs.
Use case 2: A development team working on an open source project that requires a specific data structure. Users who clone the project would be making their own clone of the app’s base when implementing, but the docs of the open source project may need to reference the API for various reasons. Requiring a login to view part of the project’s docs could be considered bad docs UX.
