Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Adopt ? We feel strongly that the industry should be adopting these items. We use them when appropriate on our projects.

Postman is a Chrome extension that acts as a REST client in your browser, allowing you to create requests and inspect responses.  It is a useful tool when developing an API or implementing a client to call an existing API. Postman supports OAuth1 and OAuth2 tokens allowing addition of them to requests where necessary. The response is available as a prettified JSON or XML. With Postman you are able to retrieve a history of requests performed to quickly edit and test the API response to different data. It offers a suite of extensions that allow you to use it as a full-blown test runner too, although we discourage the record and replay style of testing it promotes.
