REST Client by Huachao Mao

This is a really convenient extension for api developers .You can use this extension as an alternative to postman.

One can make a file with the extension .http and test out their api in vscode itself. It supports all GET,POST,UPDATE and DELETE request.

The benefit can be pushing the .http file to your GitHub repo so that other team members can contribute to the file.
