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.

Missing Some Essentials

Rested fits an interesting niche. It’s a fitting app for maybe an educational situation where you’re toy around with networking, but experienced web developers may find themselves tired of the UI and wanting for better features.

Lack of Bearer token auth is a dealbreaker for me. But I can see how others may get plenty use out of RESTed which works as advertised.

I would recommend anyone thinking of using RESTed to compare it to Postman which has a similar feature set, is also free, but has a more powerful set of features.

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.

Does what it says, and does it well. Support for multiple documents is helpful.
