In case you missed it!
Story this far:Β I joined Zartek, which is a start-up based in Kochi, Kerala where I work as a full-stack developer.
The story behind Hoppscotch: The very first task I was assigned is an API integration of an old project. That's when I came across the Postman API testing tool. Postman has separate builds targeted to each operating system made with Electron. I use a low-end PC and can't possibly afford to run another Electron app. From that moment onwards, I wanted to make an API testing platform which is:
Open Sourced πŸ’š
Runs online
Have multi-platform support
Have multi-device support
Accessible from anywhere
That's how Hoppscotch was born (this is not at all an alternative to Postman - yet, it does the job very beautifully and minimally. It needs more features and love which I hope we all can give byΒ contributing on GitHub).
When I did a background check on API request builders, Postman offered various Plans & Pricing, there were a lot of other API request builders based on cURL, etc. But none of them seems simple, minimal, and efficient.
That's why I created my own API request builder with pure JavaScript (I used Vue.js) + HTML + CSS πŸ’–
Did I mention this service is all free of charge and 100% open source? Yes, It's free and always will be.
