# Postman collection for Meilisearch

Are you tired of using 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 you can easily reuse and share with everyone. We provide a Postman collection containing all the routes of the Meilisearch API! 🚀


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

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