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.

Developers, add this to your Essentials list!

I am a Mobile App Developer and this tool is priceless! It allows me to test my server POST and analyze their response much more quickly than doing it through the app while testing/building. I used to use POSTER in FIrefox for all of this testing but since upgrading to Quantum the add on was not supported. So I had to go looking for another POST tool. I am glad that I did, this tool is MUCH better than POSTER. The nicest feature is being able to Save a POST so you can quickly select the type of POST you are going to test and all of the values/credentials are already saved. Just click send and you have your response. This tool is literally saving me time and money! If you’re a developer that does anything with REST/POST/JSON etc.. add this app to your essentials list.

It works!

I usually just use CURL, but this app makes it easier to test requests that are more complex without having to fiddle around with curl’s syntax and url-encoding. Just plug in the data and press send. It’s also nice that response JSON can be formatted for readability.

Wishlist: I wish the “Parameter Value” worked more like a textarea so it was easier to edit multi-line values. That’s just a minor detail that doesn’t detract from the funtionality of this app.

Thank you to whoever created this tool.

Beautiful and Fast

This is a fantastic client, I use it everyday. I love that you can save complex queries and open them quickly later.

There does seem to be a lack of support or a bug for doing custom JSON bodies with an array as the top level entity. Hoping this can be fixed since it forces me to use PHPStorm’s REST client for those tasks.

Also, some clients separate the domain and port from the query path which I think would be a very nice addition to this app.
