wurl - A much improved web based HTTP client

What’s Missing

wurl is optimised for what I need most, which is querying json apis. Some things not yet implemented are:

  • support for xml responses
  • identifying and linking urls in responses so that an api can be navigated
  • more advanced non-cors requests
