In this episode of the Write the Docs podcast, we chat with Abhinav Asthana (founder and CEO of Postman) to discuss how Postman, a REST client, can be used to create, collaborate, and publish API documentation.
If you work with API documentation, you’ve probably used Postman to make and test API requests. But you can do also a lot more with Postman. For example:
You can embed Run in Postman buttons that contain collections of requests that users can load in their own Postman clients (perfect for getting started tutorials).
You can collaborate with engineers on the requests and documentation by syncing collections across a team account (see Postman Pro).
