The Postman VS Code extension is now in early access with new features
We recently announced the launch of the Postman VS code extension focusing on enabling users to send requests across multiple protocols in May. Since then, we have continued to ship improvements to our API client to serve the range of user needs. While we were reviewing user feedback, we discovered that one of the most popular asks from the API community was for Postman to support collections and environments in the extension.
Today, we are thrilled to announce that the Postman VS Code extension is now in early access with the addition of two huge features addressing our community’s need to test and build their APIs using Postman while developing their APIs:
- With Postman Collections being the core feature that enables users to use existing requests and save new requests while they are building their APIs, we are excited to share that you can now save and access your HTTP requests within your collection in your Postman VS Code extension:
- We have also brought in Postman environments to store variables to test and document your APIs across multiple environments:
This latest release makes it even easier for our users to build high-quality APIs by using Postman Collections and environments. Once you have built your collections, you can also share them with your teammates using Postman workspaces so that they can validate, test, or integrate with your APIs faster.
You can get the Postman VS Code extension here and log in to access your collections and environments within your workspace immediately. We are continuing to work on bringing more capabilities within our extension. So, try it out for yourself and leave a comment below with any feedback or requests!
