Changelog #0002 β€” πŸ—‚οΈ Tabs

It’s Friday again, and it’s our second week of changelogs. Check out what’s new this week πŸ‘‡

HTTPie for Web & Desktop

Our mission is nothing smaller than to provide the best experience to anyone working with APIs. With the initial milestone of the private beta reachedβ€”feature parity with the terminal versionβ€”we’re moving on to the next items on the roadmap.

πŸ—‚οΈ Tabs

Tabs have been around almost since GUIs became a thing. For a good reason, they’re great for organization and for juggling multiple things at once. And HTTPie now has them too!

tabs

Use them to create several requests in a single window. You can then compare them or just save them for later, up to you.

πŸͺ¨ Persistency

About saving requests for later, we’ve taken a big step towards this goal: HTTPie now persists your data in local storage. The chances are that you’ll close the app by mistake or need to refresh it somehow, some-when. It would be best if you didn’t lose the requests you’ve spent time crafting when that happens. And now you won’t!

✨ Improvements

  • We’ve listened to your feedback and made the preview hidden by default. It’s still there, just a click away.
  • Remember the dirty badge on the preview we told you about last time? We found a better place for it: it is now in the title of the tab.
  • The basic auth fields now expand to multi-line. Go ahead and use event the longest username and password; they won’t get out of sight.

πŸͺ² Fixes

  • HTTP Start-Line color highlight was all over the place. Now it’s nice and uniform.

HTTPie for Terminal

We’ve improved the development version of HTTPie for Terminal as well.

  • We now preserve individual headers with the same name included in responses. They don’t get converted into a comma-separated list anymore. (#1208)

Happy testing, and see you next week!
