SublimeHttpRequester - HTTP client plugin for Sublime Text 2 & 3


Contact: braindamageinc@gmail.com

Summary

Makes HTTP requests using the selected text as URL + headers. Useful for testing REST APIs from Sublime Text 2 editor.

Update: Added client SSL certificates

Usage

Select the text that represents an URL. Examples of requests:

http://www.google.com/search?q=test
GET http://www.google.com/search?q=test
www.google.com/search?q=test

If you need to add extra headers just add them below the URL line, one on each line:

www.google.com/search?q=test
Accept: text/plain
Cookie : SOME_COOKIE

Use the right-click context menu command Http Requester or the keyboard shortcut CTRL + ALT + R ( COMMAND + ALT + R on Mac OS X ). Update: F5 refreshes last request.

POST/PUT usage

Just add POST_BODY: after any extra headers and the body on the following lines:

POST http://posttestserver.com/post.php
POST_BODY:
this is the body that will be sent via HTTP POST
a second line for body message

If you want to POST form variables:

POST http://posttestserver.com/post.php
Content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
POST_BODY:
variable1=avalue&variable2=1234&variable3=anothervalue

For PUT:

PUT http://yoururl.com/puthere
POST_BODY:
this body will be sent via HTTP PUT

DELETE usage

Same as HTTP GET:

DELETE http://yoururl.com/deletethis

Requesting through a proxy

If you need to send the request through a proxy server you can use:

GET www.yourtest.com
USE_PROXY: 127.0.0.1:1234

Where 127.0.0.1 is the proxy server address (IP or URL) followed by the port number. Warning : allways append a port number, even if it's 80

Using client SSL certificates

If you need client SSL certification you can use:

GET https://yoursecureserver.com
CLIENT_SSL_CERT: certif_file.pem
CLIENT_SSL_KEY: key_file.key

Using html charset

If you need to make a request for a page with a specific encoding such as cyrillic you can use:

GET https://yoursecureserver.com
CHARSET: cp1251

Show results in the same results tab

If you wish to have all the requests responses in the same file (tab), you can use the following param:

GET http://someserver.com
SAME_FILE: True

Installation

Using the Sublime Text 2/3 Package Control plugin (http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/package_control) press CTRL + SHIFT + P and find Package Control: Install Package and press Enter. Find this plugin in the list by name Http Requester.

Or git clone to your Sublime Text 2/3 packages folder directly (usually located at /Sublime Text 2/Packages/ or /Sublime Text 3/Packages/).

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
