About

CocoaRestClient is a Mac OS X app for testing HTTP/Restful endpoints.

I love curl, but sometimes I need my output XML or JSON pretty printed. I want to be able to save frequent PUT and POST bodies for later and copy and paste from responses easily. Think of this as curl with a light UI.

The goal of this project is to build a lightweight native Cocoa app for testing and debugging HTTP Restful services. This project was greatly inspired by the Java rest-client (https://code.google.com/archive/p/rest-client).

Source and Contributions

  • Contributions are always welcome! Please fork and create a pull request.

  • Source uses Cocoapods for dependencies, to get started, install CocoaPods and in the main project directory run:

      pod install
    
    • Note that you must have a github account and a public key registered with github so that CocoaPods can pull down a github-hosted dependency.
