RESTFul Testing Tools Postman and RequestBin

I have been writing Web API endpoints for the last few weeks. Unfortunately not in Python because the team uses another language. However, I came across two very useful free tools for testing my code, both on the client side and server side.

Client Side Postman Google Extension

This is a Chrome extension so you will need to use Google Chrome. But it is simple and flexible, add headers and bodies in different formats with a few clicks.

[Update: 02/21/2019: RequestBin link has been updated, thank you David!]

Server Side RequestBin.

It creates a private bucket to view what your request looks like on the Server side. The only complain I have is it lacks the environment variables you would get on the web server part. For that part, you can simply run a simple server in one of the public clouds, such as using Python Bottle / Flask framework in Azure.

Happy Coding!
