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

Install

.. code-block:: sh

$ pip install flask2postman

Example

Let's say that you have a Flask project called "example" (see :code:example.py), and you want to generate a Postman collection out of it.

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

.. code-block:: sh

$ 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:

.. code-block:: sh

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

This will generate the JSON configuration, and write it into the :code: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.

Usage

.. code-block:: sh

usage: flask2postman [-h] [-n NAME] [-b BASE_URL] [-a] [-i] [-f]
                     flask_instance

positional arguments:
  flask_instance

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -n NAME, --name NAME  Postman collection name (default: current directory
                        name)
  -b BASE_URL, --base_url BASE_URL
                        the base of every URL (default: {{base_url}})
  -a, --all             also generate OPTIONS/HEAD methods
  -s, --static          also generate /static/{{filename}} (Flask internal)
  -i, --indent          indent the output
