Generate a Postman collection from your Flask application

Project description

A tool that creates a Postman collection from a Flask application.

Install

$ pip install flask2postman

Example

Let’s say that you have a Flask project called “example” (see example.py), and you want to generate a Postman collection out of it.

You just need to tell flask2postman how to import the Flask instance, and optionally give a name to the Postman collection:

$ flask2postman example.app --name "Example Collection" --folders > example.json

If you don’t have a global Flask instance but rather use a function to initialize your application, that works too:

$ flask2postman example.create_app --name "Example Collection" --folders > example.json

This will generate the JSON configuration, and write it into the example.json file. You can then import this file into Postman (“Import Collection” button), and profit:

On a side note, you can see that endpoint’s docstrings are automatically imported as descriptions.
