postman: an awesome rest client tool

Have been using multiple REST clients to send and receive HTTP requests and responses. Recently one of my colleague suggested postman REST client to try out. Once I tried, I'm really liking it. It's UI is elegant and simple to use and it does its job nicely.

  1. Postman is a app on Google Chrome browser. Postman can be launched independently also from the Windows Start menu.
  2. To install the extension go to Chrome store using Chrome browser. Search for postman. Select postman, click on “Add to Chrome” and proceed with instructions.

  3. Once installed, it can be launched from start menu. Search for postman in the start menu.
