How to Install Postman Native App in Ubuntu Desktop 16.04

Postman is a quality REST API client, I am using this for last 2-3 years as a Google Chrome extention.

Since last week Postman Chrome extention started to crash, eveytime I made any request, upon investigation I figured out that Postman has released the netive app and recomments to use native app instead.

It’s quite conviniant when installing Postman on Windows or Mac, but order to run this on Ubuntu you get a download link with a zip file and no installer.

Here are some commands that will help Ubuntu users to run Postman netively in easy way.

wget -O postman.tar.gz
sudo tar -xzf postman.tar.gz -C /opt
rm postman.tar.gz
sudo ln -s /opt/Postman/Postman /usr/bin/postman
