What is the official testnet endpoint for Cardano?

I wanted to play a little with the Cardano API but I didn’t want to run the API locally. Is it possible to connect to the testnet API via REST? If so, what is the endpoint? I did not find any mentions of it in the documentation.

No you cannot, REST API backend runs on localhost, however you probably can run a node locally and config it to use testnet network instead of the mainnet one. But, tell the truth I have not checked the new code base, but what I can see is that they mention this in the their github, but could not find it:

  • launch/testnet-{public,staging}.sh - connect one node to the cluster (testnet or testnet staging
