This question already has an answer here:

Is there a sandbox site for the Stack Exchange API?

I have found a couple of questions which were made for testing answers (EG The API Sandbox), but no way to test posting or editing questions.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


No, there is no Sandbox for posting questions. You could suggest a Sandbox site (to allow all sort of actions through the API), but I am not sure if that will ever get there.

Answers are pretty useful anyways. Compared to questions they are not that different, so a good chance you get it working from coding answers only.

    There have been a couple of 'Sandbox' attempts on Area 51, which were all closed. This was the latest attempt. – Mithrandir Feb 20 '17 at 17:11
