HTTP requests & tests with plain text.
What we like
Define and execute HTTP requests in plain text. Config format makes it easy for anyone to understand and manage. Supports headers, query params, form submissions, APIs, CSRF tokens. Can assert responses for testing e.g. content, headers, JSON body, endpoint performance. Runs as a single binary CLI. Open source.
What we don't like
Uses curl underneath, but doesn’t fully support/expose all the features/options. Hurl syntax is custom, so text editors will struggle to highlight and provide autocomplete.
