rh: user-friendly command-line HTTP client
rh is a user-friendly, lightweight and performant command-line tool to request HTTP APis. You can debug, test and verify any HTTP APi with
rh in a simple and efficient way.
rh is focused on performance and stability. You don't need OpenSSL because
rh is based on Rustls, a modern TLS library alternative to OpenSSL.
rh is a standalone application with no runtime or garbage collector, so it doesn't require Python or Java installed on your machine for example.
rh is based on Rust that is a blazing fast and memory-efficient language.
rh stands for Rust HTTP.
You can already use
rh, some features are not available yet. And new features will come based on your requests (please file an issue to do so).
- Simple syntax to be more intuitive
- Easy file download & upload
- JSON made simple for command-line
- Headers made simple for command-line
- Self-signed SSL certificates
- Don't repeat yourself with aliases
- Package manager
- Multi URLs
- Better help & version (help & version)
- More to do
Don't repeat yourself
If you're used to execute very often the same requests, you can save time. An alias helps to change default values or create shortcuts. You can predefine what you like, it could be only the headers for example, or everything.
For example, someone could create an alias
mp1-status (that would stand for "my-project-1" for example). Let's say you want to execute the following command very often:
> rh http://local-dev-mp1/status -UHhc X-Custom-Header:My-app
-UHhc to show the
-URL and the method + to show the request
-Headers + to show the response
-headers + to show a
> rh alias @mp1-status http://local-dev-mp1/status -UHhc X-Custom-Header:My-app
So now, you can reuse this config:
> rh @mp1-status
Who doesn't like "Hello, World!":
> rh httpbin.org/get
Change the method:
> rh HEAD https://httpbin.org/anything
Localhost with a particular port:
> rh :9200
You can POST data as JSON (it's the default format, see more about it):
> rh https://httpbin.org/anything X-App:Super1 item1=Hello item2=World
You can POST data using the URL encoded format:
> rh https://httpbin.org/anything key1=1 --form
You can POST raw data:
> rh https://httpbin.org/anything --raw=hello
You can download a file and save it:
> rh https://httpbin.org/image/jpeg > image.jpeg
