Hey All 👋 .
Recently I got to know about a VS Code extension called Thunder Client⚡⚡ which can be used to test our API inside VS Code.
How Cool 😎 is that to test our API in the editor that we use all the time.
Thunder Client is a GUI-based Rest Api HTTPS client and has a very clean UI and easy-to-use interface.
One of the key highlights of this extension is Scriptless Testing
As we need to write a lot of boilerplate code in Postman and other clients to do basic testing using scripting like status code equal 200. In Thunder client, there is a GUI-based test where we can select a couple of dropdowns to do most standard tests very easily without any scripting knowledge.
As you can see in the image below
- First of all open your VS Code and Click on extensions on the sidebar and install thunder client.
- now you will see a icon on side bar
- for testing you can create your own API or you can use
and get your authentication token and you are good to go.
below you can see Thunder Client in action in Below GIF
- GET request
- POST request in which we create a GUI based Test
Now you can play around thunder client a little more.
Let me know your thoughts about it 😃and if you like it share it with others.
