Postman has a benefit that non-coders can use what we have built, especially QA's, if we build something in bash they cannot understand or modify.

nevertheless Postman can be run in CLI, we hooked it up with Jenkins for periodic checkups.

For any advanced use, Postman has branching, looping, variables and its own xUnit library. That pretty much looks like Turing complete programming language to me.

I wonder why we are so reluctant to use our "production programming language" for things like this. Are our languages and IDEs so bad? Are our design skills so poor?

Anyway, I do not disagree on giving easy tool to non-programmers, I just see too many programmers tied to GUIs.

Thanks a lot!
