httpclient - Shell command for performing HTTP requests using Ruby httpclient


httpclient <method> <uri> [params]



This program is an example/companion to the Ruby httpclient module, but can be used as a
complete standalone HTTP client.

If invoked with a method and an URI, the specified URI will be requested via the method
given from its server. The allowed methods are head, get, post, put, delete, options,
propfind, proppatch and trace.

Parameters can be specified as a third parameter and will be delivered accordingly (i.e.
appended to the URI after a ? sign if the method is get, but as the posted body if the
method is post)

Please note that no checks are done as to whether the requested parameters make sense in
the context they are specified, they are just sent as-is.

$ httpclient get https://www.google.co.jp/ q=ruby

Starting from version 2.6.0 httpclient supports command download.

$ httpclient download http://host/path > file

If no parameters are specified, an interactive Ruby (irb) session will be opened, binding
an HTTPClient object as 'self'. You can then call HTTPClient instance methods like:

$ httpclient
>> get "https://www.google.co.jp/", :q => :ruby

Httpclient will print the `wiredump' of your request (that is, the commands sent to the
server via HTTP), then the request's headers, and finally the result.
