WTD Episode 13: Postman for API development and docs — Interview with Postman Founder
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).
- You can import your OpenAPI specification file directly into Postman and have it populate a collection with the spec’s endpoints.
- With just a few clicks, you can also publish and host your documentation through Postman, complete with code samples in multiple programming languages.
- Check out Postman’s API Network to see many ways different companies use Postman in their documentation.
You can view the Postman podcast details on the [Write the Docs podcast site] or watch in the embedded video below.
