Postman: We will stop supporting our Chrome app. Please download our "Native" app for better performance.

No motherfuckers.. Go die, alone, while your fucking family watch you bleed to death helplessly.

Electron is not native, don't mix true native development with lazy ass electron. Fuck you. A native postman would've been around 15MB in size but your "native" installer is 68MB so shut the fuck up and don't call it native or I will stick my native dick in your fucking throats.

I develop native apps So yeah, I'm pissed when web devs are starting to call electron and JS as native desktop apps... They are not... Now fuck off you smelly cunts.

    It also doesn’t work as well.

    Moreover, don’t force me to use a “native” app that gives you more spying abilities. I didn’t miss that play for one second.

    Stop complaining about electron, get more ram

    Also, you can build a cli that does the same as postman, there is probably one already

    I'm a huge fan of insomnia. One feature right out the gate that I love is that it saves the output of its runs. Windows/Linux/Mac

    If you on the Mac the use Paw instead. It is actually native.

    It isn’t free but it was well worth the purchase to me!

    @bahua Insomnia is also a great alternative.

    It’s made in British Columbia Canada as well πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦. And I’m pretty sure the creator is a devRant user.

    It’s a super solid free option.

    @bahua does it have it's own conference like postman does though?

    Lol if it is electron technically it still works on chrome

    @KennyTheBard it's a tool to Test REST APIs

    @bahua funny you mentioned Insomnia. I had it on my PC for a while and didn't use it till today.
    I actually like it 😁

    @mundo03 you mean curl?

    Hmmm, now I'm seriously considering writing a package inspection tool for arch that sniffs out electron-powered "apps" and prevents you from installing such utter garbage.

    @MrCSharp probably I do

    @MrCSharp thanks, i use soapui for both rest and soap so yeah, im kind of noob on this subject

    Don't understand all the hate on electron. Vscode is built with electron and it's bloody brilliant.

    @null-derps not hating on electron... I am hating at the fact that web devs are considering electron based apps "native"

    Just don't use it man.

    Crying for 50mb of disk space and 150mb of ram in 2018 is ridiculous.

    Develop for 4 platforms with 1 codebase, all for the price of an additional 100mb of ram usage? Hell yes
  • 0
    @ObiSwagKenobi my problem is calling an electron app "native".

    And no, that's not an excuse for wasted memory and disk space. It is plain stupid having to load a new instance of chrome for every electron app instance. This is plain sloppy.

    Again, I'm not shitting on electron, just hating on the fact they are now calling electron apps "native" which they aren't

    @Paramite just add post its to jt with the needed memory needed, maximum 1kb per post it.
    It works 80% of the time, every time.
  • 0
    @MrCSharp how would you call it then?
  • 0
    Because curl doesn’t exist

    @mundo03 it's fucking expensive, so no, getting more RAM is not an option. And even with 16GB you will reach the point where you are constrained by it
  • 1
    @kaesaecracker i have 16gb, it id always either chrome or firefox the ones eating the ram, not electron.

    I run 3 electron apps, one of them is rambox which is basically a multi-tab electron.

    So, stop complaining, got more ram.

    @brano88 Postman or similar tools are just using curl commands in the backend or have I got it wrong?
  • 1
    @shahlin

    Not curl, just an HTTP request. The curl command is just a frontend for raw HTTP requests on the command line. There are a lot more ways than curl to make requests. Connect to the port and send GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE commands, and see. There are countless ways to package that behavior.

    @bahua Ooh, understood

    Do you really expect a company to pay twice the amount of devs to develop for every platform natively, just because you can't afford 16GBs of RAM in 2018?

    Those shitty gaming companies, developing more demanding games when some ppl cant afford a faster gpu.....

    If you are using electron to build a desktop app, then believe me, your users will need a workstation to run it.

    @karelian That would be awesome.

    Postman's killer feature is scripts. Love Paw, but it does not offer that degree of automation. Insomnia was too primitive last time I checked.
