What is Postman?
Postman is a collaboration platform for API development. Postman’s features simplify each step of building an API and streamline collaboration so you can create better APIs—faster.
At its simplest, Postman is a sort of graphical version of the cURL command line utility. cURL provides a rich structure for controlling most aspects of individual http requests. By comparison, Postman gives us a convenient graphical interface for issuing http requests against a website or API. With so many great tools, that basic but powerful functionality is only part of the story. Postman is far more than merely a graphical cURL. It truly is an API development environment. Like cURL, we use Postman to test our APIs in that we can construct requests, issue them, inspect results, and iterate as necessary. Postman is so similar to cURL that it even provides mechanisms for translating requests between the respective formats. As an API development environment, Postman allows us to save and organize requests, switch between environments, use variables to substitute information, and even collaborate with a team. we’ll discuss the features that will provide the most immediate benefit to you as an individual contributor to a project with an API. The free Postman plan is an amazingly robust offering. It’s definitely something to keep in mind as you consider how to apply Postman within your projects.
