We all use postman to send and test http requests. While coding at the same time we test the requests that we code. In the meantime to test our request or APIs we open post and switch between both of the Applications, postman and VS Code that is a separate headache. The new Postman update is very slow to load with complex user interface. It use a lot of ram as well that can slow the speed of pc and our productivity got hurt. So I have a solution for you guys. You don’t have to switch between postman and VS Code anymore because you hit and call your http request from your VS code. Yes hear right.
