I've completely replaced the need for Postman with this one extension in VS Code! The Thunder Client extension for VS Code
created by @ranga_vadhineni can do everything I need to when testing HTTP Requests.
- create and send requests
- group requests into collections
- use variables
- much more!

tried it. not bad. but can't use it for large projects due to being unable to organize the requests into folder structures.
I would give it a look from time to time to see if they implements folder organization. Because $deity knows that our RAMs don't want too much electron apps running at the same time and this is an advantage.
@djnitehawk You actually organize into folder structures ( I mean your collections). In the activities section you can actually right click on a request and save to a specified collection that you created in the collections section.
I need a collection per project and support for deeply nested folder structures. for example one of the projects I'm working on these days has over 500 requests. need to organize them in deep folder structures matching closely with the code folder structure.
ok, I understand . I don't think the extension supports that.
Hi Philip, Thunder Client now support nested folder feature - its released in v1.1.0
beeeeaaaautiful... I will give it another look. keep up the great work 🙏🙏🙏
That's great !!
The extension seems nice and I am going to use it for my personal projects as I don't have to move back and forth from VS code to the postman. Although, if it can be done, can you add a feature to import collection from postman too? Then, this will be a one-stop solution for interacting with APIs.
I believe you can already import Postman collections and environment files.
I tried but it said can not import the collection. It was a postman collection consisting of almost 350 requests.
Hi @avinash Tiwari, go to your postman collection and right click and export the collection. Use the json file when importing on Thunder Client.
You should see your collections organized:
Great Thanks! it is working flawless! Just want one feature to import the collection in the folder structure, then everyone can freely move to postman!
Thanks for the effort! Great extension.

Try REST Client extension:
I tried. Very nice in general. I'm not sure why but I'm not able to duplicate folders. I think it will be a nice feature to add in the future.
Hi Josue, thanks for the feedback, duplicate folder feature is in roadmap. Planning to implement in next update.
Its good for small projects in which you wanna do some quick testing.
But postman still is better for large projects.
This extension helps me when I can only invoke to private endpoint from VS Code remote Dev Linux server VM. Thanks to Thunder Client! 🙇♂️
That's great, I also found an interesting one.
