I am currently collaboratively working on a Phyton Wrapper for the OpenSenseMap API. Therefore I wanted to write some Unit-Tests, to check, whether or not my API-calls are all executed well.
Writing Unit-Tests, that rely on the Live-API is kind of slow. I found out, that there is a Testing API (https://api.testing.opensensemap.org/) which responds way faster than the Live-API. I can’t find any documentation on this Testing-API though.
Can somebody explain, what this API does? What it does differently from the Live-API?
Is this Testing-API even designed for the public?
Further, any advice on how to write good OpenSenseMap API Unit tests are deeply appreciated.
