Deploy Hoppscotch API Request Builder

Use Yaade Instead

This blog post's original content is out of date. I recently re-visited deploying Hoppscotch and it massively changed, and became extremely bloated and impossible to deploy and configure (especially behind a reverse proxy).

In the end, I switched to using Yaade, which is extremely easy/simple.

Original Content

Hoppscotch is a free, fast and beautiful API request builder that is an alternative to Postman, or Rester.


docker pull hoppscotch/hoppscotch
docker run -p 3000:3000 hoppscotch/hoppscotch:latest

Storing State

It looks like state is stored in the browser, and can be shared via Github/Google. Here's to hoping that they add a docker volume and store state in files that we can save/share.
