Install Postman

Troubleshooting

If you get:

error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

You may first need to run this in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install -y libgconf-2-4

If you get a blank screen when you open Postman, try logging out of the app and choosing “Use the Lightweight API Client” instead.

For now you will only need the Lightweight API Client.

Alternatives

If you have an old computer you might find Postman being very slow or becoming unresponsive. In this case you could try:

  • Thunder Client: this VS Code extension has a similar user interface to Postman
  • Hoppscotch: this web app runs in the browser.
