Build Status

cURL Importer (Paw Extension)

A Paw Extension to import cURL commands into Paw.

Installation

Easily install this Paw Extension: Install cURL Importer

How to use?

  • In Paw, go to File menu, then Import Text...
  • Paste the cURL command, and make sure the Format is cURL Importer

Available cURL Options

This importer does not support the full cURL syntax. Supported arguments are:

General

  • --url or last string, will set the url (including protocol, http etc) (see curl --url)
  • -X, --request define method, default to automatic (GET, or POST if body data is present) (see curl -X)
  • -I, --head sets the method to HEAD (see curl -I)
  • -m, --max-time sets the request timeout in seconds (see curl -m)

Headers

  • -H, --header define header (use : to separate name and value) (see curl -H)
  • -e, --referer will set a Referer header (see curl -e)
  • -A, --user-agent will set a User-Agent header (see curl -A)
  • -b, --cookie will set a Cookie header (see curl -b)
  • --compressed will append gzip to encoding headers (see curl --compressed)

Auth

  • -u, --user define username and password for HTTP Basic Auth (can also define in the URL with the format http://username:password@domain.com) (see curl -u)

Body

  • -d, --data set body data (see curl -H)
  • --data-ascii same as -d, --data (see curl --data-ascii)
  • --data-binary same as -d, --data, but newlines won't be stripped in files (behavior not yet supported here) (see curl --data-binary)
  • --data-raw same as -d, --data, but no file references will be parsed (see curl --data-raw)
  • --data-urlencode set body data, data will be url-encoded (see curl --data-urlencode)
  • -F, -form set body as multipart/form-data (see curl -F)
  • --form-string same as -F, -form, but no file references will be parsed (see curl --form-string)

Separators

  • -: and --next will separate next URLs from the options before this option (see curl -:)
  • all common shell separators will be interpreted as a new curl request (&, &&, |, etc.)
  • shell redirections (>, 2>, etc.) will be ignored, but arguments after are still parsed (e.g. curl httpbin.org/post > output.txt -d key=value works)

Short Options

Short options may be joined with their value in the same argument (e.g. both -X POST with a space and -XPOST without space are valid).

Quotes

  • ' single quotes "Enclosing characters in single quotes preserves the literal value of each character within the quotes. A single quote may not occur between single quotes, even when preceded by a backslash." (man bash)
  • " double quotes "Enclosing characters in double quotes preserves the literal value of all characters within the quotes...The backslash retains its special meaning only when followed by one of the following characters: $, `, ", , or . A double quote may be quoted within double quotes by preceding it with a backslash." (man bash)
  • $'' "dollar sign" quotes "Words of the form $'string' are treated specially. The word expands to string, with backslash-escaped characters replaced as specified by the ANSI C standard. Backslash escape sequences, if present, are decoded..." (man bash), this extension supports the same escapes as bash:
    • standard escapes: \n, \r, \t, \a, \b, \f, \v, \e, \E, \\, \', \"
    • octal escapes: \nnn "the eight-bit character whose value is the octal value nnn (one to three digits)"
    • hexadecimal escapes: \xHH "the eight-bit character whose value is the hexadecimal value HH (one or two hex digits)"
    • \cx control characters

Files

Do to OS X sandboxing, Paw cannot read from local files. All file references used in curl commands will be replaced by an empty FileDynamicValue.

Examples

Basic Auth

curl https://myuser:mypassword@httpbin.org/get
curl https://httpbin.org/get -u myuser:mypassword

application/json

curl http://httpbin.org/post -d '{"key":"va=l&u=e"}' -H Content-Type:application/json
