Insomnia REST Client
Insomnia REST Client

Postman is a nice desktop #REST #API client that allows you to save requests for later use. But it does not really support GraphQL, which I use everyday at work. So it was time to look for something else.

GraphiQL is a nice toy that has a desktop client, but you cannot save requests in any organized way. Most other clients I tried were either sluggish, didn't save requests, or didn't support cookies. Lack of cookie support is a no-no for work because we use session-based authentication in our internal API.

Then I stumbled upon Insomnia REST Client, and it clicked! Cookies work, GraphQL support is pretty good, UI looks nice and goes straight to the point. The only thing it lacks is a schema explorer, but I can always use GraphiQL if I ever need one, which is almost never.

Overall, I am very happy with it, and would recommend it to anyone seriously working with GraphQL. Insomnia is a godsend!
