Key Features

High-performance and memory efficient
The desktop application is not using Electron, Chromium, Node.js, and JavaScript frameworks. NativeRest is a 100% native application, utilizing all the features of Windows. It starts fast, uses less memory and CPU. Some popular Electron-based REST clients use up to 100 times more RAM. It also has a very fast GUI without any lags.

Preconfigured proxy server
Users can utilize a high-performance preconfigured proxy server from the program. A proxy server acts as an intermediary between the user and the web server. Proxy servers use a different IP address on behalf of the user, concealing the user's real address from web servers. Users can also configure the app to use a custom proxy configuration when sending requests.

Simple testing
It provides a way for users to easily test their APIs. They can use single-line tests to check the status, time, body, headers, and cookies of the response. Users can also utilize a list of commonly-used test code snippets to write their tests. These snippets are available in the Test Examples window.

No login required
It can be used without login for free and unlimited time. In this case, the data will be stored locally. However, users can log in to activate their subscriptions and to sync their requests, workspaces, and other settings on all their devices. It does not send statistics to NativeSoft servers if this option is disabled in the settings.

Easily organize your requests
It combines an easy-to-use interface with advanced functionality like environment variables, authentication helpers, and code generation. Everything begins here. Users can organize their requests to reflect their workflows or their API data models. They can group and order their API requests to their heart's desire.

Manage multiple environments
Users can use system variables for seamless development. They can define workspace variables like authentication credentials, tokens, or session IDs for re-use globally or within a public production workflow.

Generating code snippets
Users can generate code snippets in various languages and frameworks within the app. Over fifteen different languages are supported, including C, C#, cURL, Go, HTTP, Java, JavaScript, Kotlin, Node.js, PHP, PowerShell, Python, Ruby, Shell, Swift, and more.

Custom HTTP Methods
In addition to standard HTTP methods, It allows users to add custom HTTP methods for each workspace separately. Users can specify methods in the list in the order they need, and they can also exclude standard methods that they don't need.

Full-featured portable version
The app is available in a portable version as well. The portable version is distributed as a single executable file and does not require administrator privileges. All features are available in the portable version. The file size is approximately 7 MB. Users can download the portable version from an official download page.

Import and export data
Users can import data from other HTTP clients. They can migrate without loss earlier created collections, environments, and variables. It also supports data export. The app export file format is fully compatible with the most popular HTTP client.

Multilingual User Interface
NativeRest is a multilingual HTTP client that supports multiple languages. Currently, it supports 6 languages, including English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, and Russian. It uses the system language by default. Users can change the language in the settings window without restarting the application.

Light and dark themes
It supports Light and Dark themes for all components and windows. It uses the system theme by default, but users can manually choose a Light or Dark theme in the Settings window. Also, the dark theme is supported by the installer of the app.
