Restclient layer

Table of ContentsClose

1. Description

This layer provides a REPL-like interface for http requests.

1.1. Features:

2. Install

To use this configuration layer, add it to your ~/.spacemacs. You will need to add restclient to the existing dotspacemacs-configuration-layers list in this file.

3. Configuration

By default the layer uses restclient. To use org via ob-http by default set the layer variable restclient-use-org to t.

Note that both restclient and ob-http are always installed so you can choose the mode at any time.

4. Restclient

Any file with an .http extension is opened in a restclient buffer. Full documentation and examples can be found in the package's GitHub Page. Also there is an Emacs Rocks! episode of it.

There is support for org-babel and restclient code blocks, for instance:


#+BEGIN_SRC restclient
  GET http://example.com
#+END_SRC
