Postman, a startup which provides the most popular API toolchain, has today announced the launch of Postman Pro which reflects its more extensive features, numerous integrations, and broad appeal.
With Postman Pro, developers can leverage the power of Postman at every stage of their API workflow, from development & testing, through collaboration, documentation & publishing, to API monitoring. Postman Pro is launching with five integrations, including connections to GitHub, Slack, and Jenkins.
Commenting about the Postman Pro, Abhinav Asthana, CEO and co-founder of Postman, said,
Postman Pro is unique among API tools in providing this breadth of features. Technical teams can now leverage Postman at every stage of development, streamlining their workflow and making API development faster, easier and painless.
Postman’s free, downloadable app is the most popular tool for API development & testing and is used by more than 3 million developers worldwide. Postman Pro extends the Postman toolchain through the entire workflow, with functionality for collaboration, documentation & publishing, and even monitoring.
The Bangalore-based startup was founded in 2014 by Abhijit Kane, Abhinav Asthana, and Ankit Sobti. It is a powerful API testing suite which has become a must-have tool for many developers. Postman began as a simple tool to make API testing faster and easier and has since expanded into a powerful, collaborative and user-friendly toolchain, allowing customers to streamline and simplify every aspect of their API development.
Postman was designed by API developers specifically to make the API developer’s life easier. The company has emphasized supporting, not replacing, a developer’s existing workflow. It has the capability to import multiple API formats and has released integrations with other tools to allow developers to use Postman within their own custom work environment.
The company has witnessed explosive growth since its introduction in 2012, with developers at more than 30,000 companies using the company’s free Mac, Windows, Linux and Chrome apps. The startup estimates that its API format, the Postman Collection, is the most used API format among developers, with nearly 200,000 Postman Collections created every week.
