ENDPOINTS

DESCRIPTION

Testing an HTTP Library can become difficult sometimes. RequestBin is fantastic for testing POST requests, but doesn't let you control the response. This exists to cover all kinds of HTTP scenarios. Additional endpoints are being considered.

All endpoint responses are JSON-encoded.

EXAMPLES

$ curl /httpbin.org/ip

{"origin": "24.127.96.129"}

$ curl /httpbin.org/user-agent

{"user-agent": "curl/7.19.7 (universal-apple-darwin10.0) libcurl/7.19.7 OpenSSL/0.9.8l zlib/1.2.3"}

$ curl /httpbin.org/get

{
   "args": {},
   "headers": {
      "Accept": "*/*",
