+# [HTTP PONG](https://http-pong.herokuapp.com/)
+
+##### A simple web service for debugging HTTP client requests
+
+###### View HTTP Headers, query parameters, request body, cookies, etc.
+
+## Why?
+
+I was having trouble configuring the NodeJS https module to use an Agent. So, I
+built this to help debug my implementation. I figured it would be a handy tool
+for others, so I'm sharing the code, and put it up on Heroku.
+
+## Usage
+
+Basically, just make any sort of HTTP request you'd like, and HTTP PONG will
+return a JSON document of received data.
+
+Here some cURL examples, but you can use any language you'd like to see how
+your HTTP client requests are behaving.
+
+##### HTTP GET
+``` sh
+curl https://http-pong.herokuapp.com?foo=bar
+```
+
+##### HTTP POST
+``` sh
+curl --data "foo=bar&hello=world" https://http-pong.herokuapp.com
+```
