It's nowhere as plug-and-play as what you've envisioned, sadly, but perhaps
you could have some success by having your endpoints output a [Siren]
hypermedia representation of your server resources and then pointing one of
the various API browsers[1][2][3] at it, though they do look like
development has been abandoned nowdays, sadly.

I even have some (very old, never published, never battle-tested,
unmaintained, probably broken, not so well designed) [code] that's handy to
generate Siren resource representations; it may serve as a starting point
if you decide this is a reasonable way forward.
