Postman-powered testing of Akka Serverless gRPC APIs
2 projects | dev.to | 6 Jan 2022
Over the holidays, 2021, Postman gifted a fine upgrade to its users: beta support for the gRPC protocol in its API platform. As a Product Manager for Lightbend and helping out on its new gRPC native PaaS for building and running APIs and microservices, I was excited, to say the least. In another, recent blog post, I mentioned my desire to leverage UI test-and-try tools for APIs (my time in the REST API world of Mashery and PubNub was the source of such desire). In that same post though, I noted the lack of several important gRPC features, like server reflection and more robust import capabilities, as blockers; hence, my deep dive, in that post, into the CLI tool, Evans.
