A demo store in the context of API integration is an environment that provides a convenient way to test and interact with a specific API. This is especially useful during early stages of development when developers need to quickly assess the capabilities of the API, try its functionality, and ensure its compatibility with their project.
A demo store will help you familiarize yourself with the API and its features. You can experiment with different requests, check the output data, modify and populate the store with new data and content. As a result, it helps understand how to interact with the API before using it in your own project with a real store.
In general, a demo store is a useful tool that facilitates API interaction by providing a simple and convenient environment for testing and showcasing its capabilities.
