# Postman Collection for MeiliSearch

Are you tired to use the curl command in your terminal to test MeiliSearch? It can be tedious to re-write every route when wanting to try out an API.

Postman is a platform that lets you create HTTP requests that you can reuse easily and share with everyone.
We provide a Postman collection containing all the routes of the MeiliSearch API! 🚀


If you don't use Postman yet, you can download it here (opens new window).
It's free and available on many OS distributions.

# Import the collection

Once you downloaded the Postman collection, you need to import it into Postman.
