Statically Checking Web API Requests in Atom

Check your API request code within Atom
One way to support developers in consuming web APIs is to statically check the code they write and ensure that it matches API specifications. Doing so allows the detection of errors early on, that would otherwise emerge at runtime.
The video https://www.youtube.com/embed/8IJKs7rMjJI no longer exists.
Of course, we have many ideas on how to extend the plugin: It could be used to identify which APIs to use, or provide code snippets within the editor.
What do you think about in-editor support like this? What ideas do you have to extend this capability?
PS: The video also shows a new version of the API Harmony user interface, which we will deploy soon.
