In this video, learn how to test endpoints with the tool Postman, and even create a URL that you could use to test the endpoints.
- [Instructor] Postman is my go-to tool…whenever I need to test any API endpoints,…such as the ones we just created.…When you enter a URL in a browser,…it sends a get meta to the API.…But if you'd like to test the other methods from our server,…how will we go about it?…You could do Curl commands but I love all the neat features…Postman provides so I usually use it over Curl.…Let me show you.…So go to getpostman.com,…and as you can see when you get to the page…there are versions for Mac, Windows, and Linux.…
So if you are Linux go ahead…and click and download and install.…Same thing on Windows. Pretty simple.…Just download and install.…In this case we're on a Mac so let's go ahead and do that.…We're going to extract that file.…And then drag and drop inside the application.…And I'm good to go.…Let's minimize that page.…And let's open Postman.…And the first time you open Postman,…it's going to ask you to log in.…
And I'm just going to do that in a second.…Yes you can go ahead and open.…I'm going to sign up with my Google account.…
