Tail HTTP text resources that support the range header.
Primary use case: streaming (tailing) large logfiles via http
httpTail "http://localhost:8080/logfile" httpTail "http://some.remote.server.com/manage/logfile" --cookie="SESSION=grab-session-cookie-from-admin-session"
- Other auth except "stolen cookie" primarily basic auth
This was initially created to be able to easily observe logfiles from spring boot applications exposed via the actuator logging endpoint (for more information see https://docs.spring.io/spring-boot/docs/current/reference/html/production-ready-endpoints.html#production-ready-endpoints ).
