Postman Alternatives for Testing an API

A discussion came up in our Hack the Galaxy Tech Talks about any alternatives to Postman for testing APIs.

Here’s some alternatives that one of our team members also posted.

Have you used any of these? What are some other alternatives you can think of?

There’s also a helpful Comparison table included on this post.

We do have a Postman collection here if you want to get started to make your first API with Rapyd.



I haven’t used any besides Postman, but I have planned to try Thunder Client, a plugin extension in Visual Studio Code.

Have you tried out Swagger or LoopBack for testing ?

thanks, I’ve played around with Swagger’s resources, they’re great for API mocks. Loopback I have not yet.

I’ve seen more docs with a API testing function on their API refs. Like a “try it” function. What do you think of this?
