Just discovered Insomnia Designer, I freaking love it and it's git integration. This is exactly what we developers needed for years 🥳

    Welcome to the club 🍪

    @molaram api designer, uses Open API, graphQL and Swagger as standards, it ultimately makes life soooo much easier if you build APis for a living.


    Their original offering (now core) was a postman killer in my eyes.

    I swear by insomnia but have yet to look at designer. I had trouble getting an idea of what it "is" just reading the blurbs so I ignored it. Sounds like I need to check it out.

    I keep my insomnia config and cache files on my nextcloud, so that, as long as I open on one desktop at a time, all my history and setup persists between hosts and OSes. The biggest complaint I have with it is the fact that proxies are not more flexible, and sometimes it just refuses to work with one.

    Otherwise it's an indispensable part of my workflow.

    This is... intriguing.
    I am now going to attempt to create an API for literally no reason as I have no fucking hobbies.

    Yeah, it's awesome, but I'm not so much hyped about features of designer itself - having another OpenAPI editor and possibility to design APIs inside of Insomnia is great, but I more love that now we're able to sync actual requests/folders/env to git and share them that way - something that was previously only reserved for payed cloud sync (postman charges this 15€/user/month, insomnia 5€)

    I've never quite understood this type of thing. It feels like keeping tests in a disparate responsibility from their endpoints. Part of my code generates swagger/openapi from what is (so it's always accurate), and then I just have a test suite that tests the resulting endpoints in the codes test suite.
