How to Install Postman on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
In the age of increasing interconnectedness, APIs play a key role in modern software development. The Postman API client is a simple tool that makes it easy for developers to document, share, test, and create APIs. HTTP testing is accomplished by using a GUI to obtain a variety of responses for further testing. In order to do this, administrators can design and manage simple and complex HTTP/S requests, and they can also read their responses. In other words, administrators can work more efficiently and effectively. Currently, Postman’s platform is used by more than 7 million users and 300,000 businesses, including PayPal, Microsoft, Twitter, Shopify, and BigCommerce. I’ll demonstrate how to set it up on Ubuntu.
