  • HTTPie

    HTTPie (pronounced aitch-tee-tee-pie) is a command line HTTP client. Its goal is to make CLI interaction with web services as human-friendly as possible. It provides a simple http command that allows for sending arbitrary HTTP requests using a simple and natural syntax, and displays colorized output. HTTPie can be used for testing, debugging, and generally interacting with HTTP servers.

    • Like cURL, HTTPie also has JSON support, but HTTPie reduces syntax by leaving out the header syntax. This makes a test call to an API easier to remember. Avoiding time spent reviewing a doc. For example: $ http POST https://api.ctl.io/v2/authentication/login 'username=YOUR.USERNAME' 'password=YOUR.PASSWORD' A similar call using cURL requires header syntax.
