It is always good to have alternatives. We heavily make use of postman with shared files. It makes it convenient for QA to make use of postman with the shared APIs and environment files. It is nice to see vscode having extensions that give a full-blown replacement.

When I need to do some quick HTTP requests without context switching in VSCode, I rely on an extension called RestClient. It fits in the code editor as it is a text-driven rest-client and doesn't have a fancy UI. Also, it is not as powerful but good enough for most use cases.
