Postman Portable, supercharge your API workflow!
"It’s a great tool for exercising APIs, testing them manually, documenting them and even sharing knowledge on APIs across a team. The problem is that it ‘s not a professional tool. ... So, in our case. We are using postman just to explore, document and share." —Daniel Cerecedo (a user), (Jul 26, 2016)
"Its an amazing tool, We have using it for a year now. Its very mature and plus its free(except some part). I am so used to to it that i created a videos series dedicated to it." —Promode (a user), (Jan 21, 2017)
"We love Postman. We have created collections of our API calls on Postman that we share with anyone trying to use our APIs and it makes it SO MUCH easier to get someone up and running. They don't have to stumble around on syntax, typos, etc. They just test with Postman and copy & paste that into their code base. Love it..." —Derek Skaletsky (a user), (Sep 24, 2015)
Postman is a powerful HTTP client for testing web services. Created by Abhinav Asthana, a programmer and designer based in Bangalore, India, Postman makes it easy to test, develop and document APIs by allowing users to quickly put together both simple and complex HTTP requests.

Portability Notes

  • Postman do not have portable mode. It stores its settings in Windows data folder and writes non essential data to Windows registry while running.
  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • You can help by sending request to the official developer to add "portable mode" to their future release.
