Postman helps you be more efficient while working with APIs. Postman is a scratch-your-own-itch project. The need for it arose while one of the developers was creating an API for his project. After looking around for a number of tools, nothing felt just right. The primary features added were a history of sent requests and collections. A number of other features have been added since the initial release. A small list is below. To see a fancier page and a video tutorial, check out http://www.getpostman.com
Create requests quickly.
- Compact layout
- HTTP requests with file upload support
- Formatted API responses for JSON and XML
- HATEOAS support
- Image previews
- Request history
- Basic Auth and OAuth 1.0 helpers
- Autocomplete for URL and header values
- Key/value editors for adding parameters or header values. Works for URL parameters too.
- Use environment variables to easily shift between settings. Great for testing production, staging or local setups.
- Keyboard shortcuts to maximize your productivity
Document and share APIs.
- Use collections to organize requests.
- Document requests inside collections. You can even store entire HTML notes. Postman uses Bootstrap so you can use it too to style your notes.
- Download and share collections with your team of developers.
If you downloaded the Postman zip file here is what you need to do to install it as a developer extension:
- Go to Tools > Extensions inside Chrome by clicking on the wrench icon on top right.
- Select "Load unpacked extension"
- Select the "chrome" folder with manifest.json in it's root
- Postman will be installed as a developer extension. The installation from the Chrome Web Store will remain independent with all your data.
- Install the dependencies
sudo npm install -g grunt grunt-cli
- Generate the template.js and request.js files by running grunt. You can watch the folder for changes using:
- For misc. grunt tasks, look at grunt.js.
Please add the Postman version along with your operating system and Chrome version along with bug requests.
