Discussion on: Are there any API specification formats for WebSockets?

AyncAPI is the closest specification for the streaming protocol like WebSocket, MQTT, and others. But it's still premature stage and growing standard. We're building Firecamp for streaming protocol testing.

you can give Firecamp a try. For the specification, we're working on it and most probably we'll keep it compatible with AsyncAPI specifications. You can import/export the project (including ws request) and review the custom specification (Firecamp format). Based on it we're generating the code snippets for different languages. you can see it in the screenshots.

We'll publish the WS specifications once it'll be more matured. Please keep sharing your feedbacks :)
