The slow build

10 out 0f 60 endpoints documented so far. 2120 lines of YAML in the API definition file. About 30 hours spent.

Building an API definition in YAML is slow-going. I am using Stoplight to build it, and toggling between the code and the UI. Every few days I send a bunch of questions to Daniel who responds quickly and with meaningful answers. He himself has admitted that this is a lot of work but worth it because he is really getting to know the product a whole lot better.

At this point, I am working most nights on the project, for at least two hours. So after working my day job, it’s pretty intense. But there’s much to do and the practise has been invaluable.
