You know the drill. You’re developing an app for a client and you need to test every APIs and every APIs response in every method, on every requests.
How about making a tool where you can test your APIs from your browser itself without switching between apps as you work? That would be neat, huh!

I was that guy.
I had some problems with CORS in deployment, but I found a quick workaround. I used Vue.js and apparently migrated to Nuxt.js.
At that point I started thinking that the tool can actually be published as a standalone web app, and the WebSocket testing feature can just be an addition. So I shifted my goal and starting working towards that.
I actually wrapped up work at 4:30 AM because I just couldn’t go to sleep without finishing that one thing 😅
