http-twiddle

This Emacs addon is useful for interactive testing and debugging hand-written HTTP requests:

  1. Activate http-twiddle-mode with M-x.
  2. Write your request.
  3. C-c C-c (re)sends the request.

(C-u C-c C-c to change the destination or port.)

The request can either be written from scratch or you can paste it from a snoop/tcpdump and then twiddle from there.

The mode will also activate automatically when opening a filename ending with .http-twiddle.

Examples

Try M-x http-twiddle-mode-demo in Emacs for a simple get-started example.

If the Content-Length header is not written out (like in the examples below) it'll be added automatically on send.

GET:

GET /user/bob/ HTTP/1.1
Host: example.com
[blank line here]

POST:

POST /user/create/ HTTP/1.1
Host: example.com
Content-Type: text/xml
Connection: close

<user><name>Bob</name><email>bob@example.com</email></user>
