Any plans on releasing the "REST Client" as a standalone tool?



I've been mostly using Postman for testing REST APIs but then I found these "Scratches" in Rider. I saw that you can create ".http scripts" with which you can make requests to REST APIs and test them that way. I was blown by how simple and easy it is to use. A huge revelation after having to click tons of stuff together with a mouse in tools like Postman. Are there any plans on releasing a standalone little tool like the ".http scratch" which would allow for this kind of testing? Nowadays I usually boot up Rider even if I don't have to write anything in .NET just for this little tool. Thanks!
