RESTed allows developers to quickly format and make HTTP requests and view the response.

RESTed supports both basic HTTP authentication and OAuth.

RESTed shows you the response header and response data.

XML and JSON responses can even be spruced up automatically.

What’s New

Version 2.7

GET /updates

* RESTed 2.7 drops support for 10.6, because it doesn't have NSRegularExpression.

* Users may now embed URLs with parameters (see note below for example).
* Response styles updated.

* Sending Empty URLs no longer crashes RESTed.
* True/false are sent as booleans, instead of strings, when using JSON-encoding.
* RESTed now leaves most character encoding in the URL field up to the user.


URL embedding example:

- User-provided URL: http://localhost/{{resource}}/{{id}}/
- Parameters: resource = posts, id = 3, & author = true
- Destination URL: http://localhost/posts/3/?author=true

RESTed 2.7 matches parameters in your URL as {{\w+}}. So, parameter names need to be alphanumeric.

Great app, a few additions would imprve it further

I switch between this app and Echo, which alas is no longer maintained or sold.

One thing I love in Echo which this app could really do with is to have a nav pane with requests, so that simply clicking on a request name brings it up, rather than having to open a file each time in a separate window. Echo also allows the grouping of requests , so you can have a group per system that you are testing.

I know that this also has not been updated since 2013, so it’s unlikely to happen, but just putting it out there in case the developer is working on an update.

Works Great. Well Done.

I was in need of a REST client, and tried cocoa-rest-client, which for some reason was returning 400's from my web service on every call. I'd almost given up, then I though i'd give this ago. No problems! Works a charm… nice UI, clear and simple.

The only thing I would like, is the saved requests side bar tab like they have in cocoa-rest-client. Doing file > open is a bit annoying when I have a few urls to test in succession a few times, and I'd rather it not open a pop up window each time.

Great work. Thanks

Been looking for a solution like this on various platforms. This is just what I needed to be able to understand the functioning of an API, I can see already this this is going to be a critical part of my network application development process.

Thank-you ‘Hello, Resolven Apps’….
