A better Postman alternative: Hoppscotch
I used to use Postman for both personal and work projects. It was great for making HTTP requests without having to create curl commands. But now, Postman requires a login, which I hate. I don’t understand why a login is needed for such a simple tool.
I did some research and found a great alternative that doesn’t require installation: Hoppscotch. It’s open source, self-hostable and looks similar to Postman. To circumvent CORS, you can download a simple browser addon or use a (self-hosted) proxy.
You can also log into Hoppscotch to save your workspace, but it’s optional.
