Postman offers free (small-project) API developer tools – Open Source Insider

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/07/19

Cool: [WayBackPostman offers free (small-project) API developer tools – Open Source Insider.

I’ve used the [Archive.isPostman – Chrome Web Store for HTTP/HTTPS API testing using various REST services. It’s awesome even though unlike the postmanlabs/postman-chrome-extension-legacy: Postman REST Client Chrome Extension (Legacy Version) it’s not open source any more as it now can run server side and has an API of itself [WayBack].

Get it at [WayBackPostman | Supercharge your API workflow. Available for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux and Chrome users.

The strange case of some applications not being able to copy/paste on the Mac OS X clipboard

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/07/19

I’ve not tracked down the cause yet, but these seem to be related:

  1. The Mac OS X build of Atom IO
  2. WinBox v 3.4 WineBottle version from Winbox for Mac in an embedded Wine environment –
  3. pbcopy / pbpaste that allow command-line copy/pasting
  4. none of these being able to copy/paste any more and return error level 1 like terminal – pbcopy exits code 1, no error message – Ask Different but not even running tmux or screen which means this solution does not apply: ChrisJohnsen/tmux-MacOSX-pasteboard: Notes and workarounds for accessing the Mac OS X pasteboard in tmux sessions.
  5. I didn’t have Mouse Keys turned on
  6. Other applications (Chrome, FireFox, TextEdit, Finder, etc) still being able to copy/paste between each other

I’ve “fixed” 4. by doing this as recommended at osx – Copy and Cut sometimes don’t work – Ask Different:

launchctl list | grep

If the pboard daemon is running, then stop and start it. If it’s not running, start it:

launchctl stop
launchctl start

Now 4. works again if I restart each application, 6. still works, but these applications still cannot copy/paste to 1. 2. and 3.

What does work is a full reboot, but that takes a while (especially Chrome re-loading lots of Windows: I need to get more organised here).

It might be that I need to restart each application in 6.
