getd.io/ - Postman without native apps

techbos profile image TechBos😎 ・2 min read

getd.io is a free, online API builder that I created as Postman without the native apps. Give it a try and let me know what you think. You can also read more in this post.

Since I launched getd.io 🚀 two weeks ago, many changes have made into this product:

Alt Text

New Features

  • Support for a mobile responsive UI. See the difference here.

  • Support for new request body formats such as x-www-form-urlencoded and form-data. Read my post if you are unsure what they are.

Alt Text

  • Support for OAuth2 Bearer token in request headers

Alt Text

  • The request history uses fuzzy search now.

Usability Improvements

  • Both the request and response body editor will now automatically switch to the right format (e.g., JSON, raw text, HTML) by detecting the content-type header.

It seems many users who land on the site didn't know what to do. To improve that:

  • A new landing page was added to show a quick product demo.

Alt Text

  • A list of sample requests are shown to new users to help them get started.

What's Next

  • I'm planning on open-sourcing this project. Please leave a comment on this post if you'd like to see this project open sourced, or have suggestions.
  • I'm building an API explorer as a playground for public APIs. E.g., you can instantly get a token to call Spotify APIs and make it play some music, while at the same time learning how the API works.
  • I'm planning to build a feature to allow users to create/save workspaces.

Please feel free to leave a comment as I ❤️ feedbacks!

Isn't this more of a request builder than an API builder? To me, calling it an API builder I thought it actually created an API rather than being an web based replacement for Postman.

Looks cool though!

 

Ah, Good point! Do you think an API builder would be much more useful than a request builder? Is there a good API builder that you'd recommend?

 

Exactly, something similar to postman.

 

You are absolutely correct! It's a web based postman without the native apps, although I do plan to add more features.
