Plugin Hub 1.0

TL;DR – Check out the new Insomnia Plugin Hub! 🔥

Insomnia is a great tool for interacting with GraphQL and REST APIs. But, did you know that it can be extended even further with plugins? The community has made some amazing plugins since the plugin system's initial launch two years ago, from custom themes like the Material Darker, to HTTP signature generation with Better HTTP Signatures, to an XDebug UI switch with XDebug. It's amazing to see the community using plugin to help make Insomnia even more useful.

Because of this, we are happy to announce the Insomnia Plugin Hub. Our goal with the plugin hub is to make it easier for the community to discover plugins, provide a space for plugin creators to showcase their work, and increase usage of plugins overall. The current plugin ecosystem is great and this is our first major investment to make it even better.

Here's a quick look at what it looks like.

Browse and Search Plugins

Search for a specific plugin, or browse them all from the main page.

Plugin Pages

Each plugin gets it’s own dedicated page on the site—readme displayed in full.

One Click Install

One of the biggest features, and most amazing in my opinion, is the ability to install a plugin directly from the site. No more having to copy the plugin-name and manually installing.

Do you have any ideas for how we could make the plugin system even better? We'd love your feedback. Let us know what you'd like to see by reaching out on Twitter @getinsomnia or @nijikokun!
