Intercept.rest vs Postman: What are the differences?

Developers describe Intercept.rest as "Faster API debugging". Similar to the Network tab in Chrome Dev Tools but works for any API, Mobile apps, web hooks, frontend etc.. On the other hand, Postman is detailed as "Only complete API development environment". Postman is the only complete API development environment, used by nearly five million developers and more than 100,000 companies worldwide.

Intercept.rest and Postman can be primarily classified as "API" tools.

Some of the features offered by Intercept.rest are:

  • Realtime logs
  • Offline support
  • Collaborate better

On the other hand, Postman provides the following key features:

  • Compact layout
  • HTTP requests with file upload support
  • Formatted API responses for JSON and XML

"Super easy to get started, https works out of the box" is the primary reason why developers consider Intercept.rest over the competitors, whereas "Easy to use" was stated as the key factor in picking Postman.

Swagger UISwagger UI

From a StackShare Community member: "I just started working for a start-up and we are in desperate need of better documentation for our API. Currently our API docs is in a README.md file. We are evaluating Postman and Swagger UI. Since there are many options and I was wondering what other StackSharers would recommend?"

I use Postman because of the ease of team-management, using workspaces and teams, runner, collections, environment variables, test-scripts (post execution), variable management (pre and post execution), folders (inside collections, for better management of APIs), newman, easy-ci-integration (and probably a few more things that I am not able to recall right now).

I use Swagger UI because it's an easy tool for end-consumers to visualize and test our APIs. It focuses on that ! And it's directly embedded and delivered with the APIs. Postman's built-in tools aren't bad, but their main focus isn't the documentation and also, they are hosted outside the project.

I recommend Postman because it's easy to use with history option. Also, it has very great features like runner, collections, test scripts runners, defining environment variables and simple exporting and importing data.

Postman supports automation and organization in a way that Insomnia just doesn't. Admittedly, Insomnia makes it slightly easy to query the data that you get back (in a very MongoDB-esque query language) but Postman sets you up to develop the code that you would use in development/testing right in the editor.
