Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • Sonar - Write Clean Python Code. Always.
  • Zigi - Delete the most useless function ever: context switching.
  • insomnia

    The open-source, cross-platform API client for GraphQL, REST, WebSockets and gRPC.

    I think https://insomnia.rest is the most popular, its open source, but has paid functions.

  • Postwoman

    👽 Open source API development ecosystem - https://hoppscotch.io

    I use Hoppscotch on the browser itself

  • Scout APM

    Truly a developer’s best friend. Scout APM is great for developers who want to find and fix performance issues in their applications. With Scout, we'll take care of the bugs so you can focus on building great things 🚀.

  • httpie

    🥧 HTTPie for Terminal — modern, user-friendly command-line HTTP client for the API era. JSON support, colors, sessions, downloads, plugins & more.

    HTTPie also just released a desktop app. It's a bit barebones so far, but has a nice clean UI, much nicer than postman https://httpie.io/

  • nightingale-rest-api-client

    A modern, resource-efficient REST API client for Windows. (Issues-only repo)

    I recommend https://nightingale.rest , is a native REST client for Windows, so if you like native applications this is for you.

  • pipx

    Install and Run Python Applications in Isolated Environments

    As they are Python, they are farily easily installable in user-space using pipx.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.
