Said about HTTPie as an alternative
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.
