Project Description

Just another command line HTTP client (in the spirit of cURL).

Example Usage

HTTP verbs are specified as a positional argument, followed by the URL to be acted on. The goal is to reflect the feel of a standard HTTP header. For example:

$ http get http://localhost/

To provide a request body (e.g. for a POST or PUT), use the third positional argument:

$ http post http://localhost/documents '{"json": "document"}' --content-type="application/json"

Note the arbitrary request header being specified at the end as a normal CLI option. Any such trailing CLI options will be passed as request headers:

$ http get http://localhost/ --x-forwarded-for=10.0.0.50

This would be translated as X-Forwarded-For: 10.0.0.50 in the subsequent HTTP request. To illustrate this, we can enable verbose output:

$ http get http://localhost/ --x-forwarded-for=10.0.0.50
GET http://localhost/
X-Forwarded-For: 10.0.0.50
