Insomnia – A simple, beautiful, and free REST API client

Working with API’s is a common task we all face and one tool that makes this is easier is the Insomnia REST client created by Gregory Schier. It’s cross-platform compatible and works on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

With the app, you can quickly create requests by specifying the URL, payload, headers, and authorization all in one place. Once you hit send it gives you all the details on every response. View status code, body, headers, cookies, and more.

Besides being simple to use it also includes environment variables so you can share common variables across requests and manage them in one place.

If you’ve been testing API’s through the console or manually give this app a try and save yourself some time and hassle.
