A CLI http client that will make you smile

httpie is a command-line http client, much like cURL or wget. Written entirely in Python (using requests for the backend and pygments for syntax highlighting), it’s well portable to many platforms, including the big three Windows, Linux and OSX.


Freek Van der Herten is a partner and developer at Spatie, an Antwerp based company that specializes in creating web apps with Laravel. After hours he writes about modern PHP and Laravel on this blog. When not coding he’s probably rehearsing with his kraut rock band. He loves waffles and butterflies.
