You can contribute themes for Everest, a REST client that I'm building. All you need is CSS!

I'm planning to ship the best ones with the next release of Everest!

You can find more details here: Build a theme for Everest with just CSS!

RohitAwate / Everest

A beautiful, cross-platform REST client.


Everest (formerly RESTaurant) is an upcoming REST API testing client written in JavaFX.

home Everest running on Windows 10.

Why Everest?

  • Everest is written in Java. Thus, it is significantly lighter on resources and more responsive than its Electron-based alternatives like Postman. It aims to provide the same level of functionality in a lighter, native but equally slick package.

  • Aesthetic is very important. With a gorgeous, flat design, Everest is a pleasure to look at and to work with. It is also entirely theme-able.

    I want you to want to use it!

  • Being a Java application, Everest is inherently cross-platform. It will run anywhere there's a JVM.

  • Everest will offer cloud synchronization of your projects powered by Summit. It will be available as a cloud service early next year or you may also choose to self-host it.

Could you share what tool you used to make your demo videos? (And a maybe a short blurb on your process) I like them - user-images.githubusercontent.com/...

I use ScreenToGif. It's open-source, lightweight and comes with lots of options to customise your recording. It can directly output GIFs. The only downside is that it's Windows-only.

This looks like an interesting project, also because I use Postman extensively, but the making a theme with just CSS sounds intriguing.
I'll be looking into it in the coming days.
