line2httppost

Simple tool to read lines from stdin and post each line as separate POST request to a specified URL (TCP connection is reused though).

Good together with postsse.

Features

  • Connects to http and https, both http1 and http2.
  • Logging of errors during connection or failed response statuses.

Limitations

  • No advanced options like line delimiter
  • It waits for reposnse from server before sending the next line, so RTT affects thoughput.
  • Each line is fully buffered prior to starting the request, no streaming/chunking.

Installation

Download pre-built executables from Github releases, install it from source code with cargo install --path . or from crates.io with cargo install line2httppost.
