Your one-stop shop for sending and monitoring
RESTful, Streaming, GraphQL, and gRPC API requests

Swell is a API development tool that enables developers to test endpoints served over streaming technologies including Server-Sent Events (SSE), WebSockets, HTTP2, gRPC, and GraphQL.

New to Swell 0.6.0

Brand New UI

Swell comes with a brand new look! Featured with improved navigation and faster rendering processes, testing endpoints never felt so smooth!

GraphQL Schema Introspection & Smart Code Editor

Never make a GraphQL mistake again thanks to our new Schema Introspection and Smart Code Editor. Make queries, mutations, and subscriptions without any of the guesswork!


Swell supports full HTTP2 multiplexing of requests and responses. HTTP requests to the same host will be sent over the same connection. Swell will attempt HTTP2 for all HTTPS requests by default, but will revert to HTTP1.1 for legacy servers


Just as Swell can test streaming and non-RESTful APIs, Swell can also test your RESTful APIs

Server-Sent Events (SSE)

Connect to SSEs and watch streaming events come in one by one

WebSockets (WS)

Connect directly to WebSocket servers with upgraded HTTP/HTTPS protocols and send messages to test real-time responsiveness


Test all three GraphQL root types (query, mutation, subscription) with and without variables


Swell includes full support for all four streaming types of gRPC - unary, client stream, server stream, and bidirectional stream


Keep track of your endpoints with collections, and easily import/export groups of requests
