httpbin(1): HTTP Request & Response Service

Freely hosted in HTTP & HTTPS flavors.

ENDPOINTS

DESCRIPTION

Testing an HTTP Library can become difficult sometimes. PostBin.org is fantastic for testing POST requests, but not much else. This exists to cover all kinds of HTTP scenarios. Additional endpoints are being considered (e.g. /deflate).

All endpoint responses are JSON-encoded.

EXAMPLES

$ curl http://httpbin.org/ip

{"origin": "24.127.96.129"}

$ curl http://httpbin.org/user-agent

{"user-agent": "curl/7.19.7 (universal-apple-darwin10.0) libcurl/7.19.7 OpenSSL/0.9.8l zlib/1.2.3"}

$ curl http://httpbin.org/get
