I haven't been able to get this to work at all on Mint 12. It simply doesn't return anything, not even error messages. If the REST function is GET, I can type the url into a browser and get a result. This plugin just doesn't return anything whatsoever.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very nice tool, useful for quickly testing RESTful services. There is however some room for improvement, oauth support is very basic and sometimes the response formatter omitts text present in the raw response. Nevertheless very useful tool. Keep up the good work, it's appreciated!

Works perfect, ideal for testing a REST service Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm currently writing a REST server and this extension is my primary testing tool. Sleek and full-featured : Nice work !

Fantastic tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely love this tool! It makes my life as an Android developer much easier--I can easily execute requests and inspect their responses before I dive into implementing it.

Nice well designed addon for testing REST Services Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very nice addon. UI is well designed and I love the fact that I can save queries.

I'm trying to figure out if I can use this test file upload as well via mult-part form or raw file in the body of a PUT or POST. Is this possible?

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It is quite good. However I'm not happy to see that adding and removing headers are not as convenient as other similar add-ons. I have to type the header name & value (other add-ons allow to select from available lists), and favorite headers are too short, I can't distinguish the favorite ones starting with the same name (like "Content-Type: applicat..."). Besides, if I want to remove a header, I have to remove all of them and add needed ones again. The only thing I like about this add-on is its ability to highlight the response body.

The best REST services tester Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for this great addon for Firefox. It's user interface is clear and complete.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on. I use it at work everyday and I'm more than happy with it. The highlighting feature has some limitations, though. The highlighting is based on the KelpJSONView.js which is using JSON.parse() and if you have some large numbers (longer than 15 digits) you lose precision and you end up with wrong values. That is happening because in JavaScript those numbers are saved as floating point numbers. A fix for that is to detect those numbers before calling the JSON.parse() method and convert them to strings for example.

Excellent piece, can improve Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great plugin. Helps a lot while debugging any rest service. Quick simple but very effective and poweful.

One small request ::
If possible, can you please include below mentioned library in this plugin? This will help viewing the response in more structured view.

As a developer of mobile apps backed by restful servers, this has been an invaluable tool for me. It saves so much time over typing commands into curl on the command line.

Great plugin - problems with new versions Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Ever since this plugin updated to 2.*.* from 1.3.*, me and several people I work with, cannot add custom Headers (or any headers at all for that matter) and also there are other anomalies that I never saw with the older version. intermittently sometimes when installed it works but returns nothing but blank responses. Cannot update to old version, even my old firefox 3.6 portable is not installing it ,says not compatible. But it always was compatible!

Face it -- the work of a developer is hard. It is even harder when there is a lack of good tools for testing and debugging software – particularly web services. In the past, I used to write test harnesses that required bulky IDE’s with steep learning curves. I was like, “surely, there has to be a better way to do this…” After some research, I found RESTClient. RESTClient is FireFox plugin for testing web services that is simple, low-level, and easy to use. I simply fill out the request and run it. Then RESTClient shows me exactly what the webserver sent without all the unnecessary fluff of a fancy IDE’s. Its simplicity has saved me hours of frustration and work. But don’t let the name fool you. RESTClient works with REST services, but it will also post back and receive XML and it works JSON data too. The bottom line is this: RESTCLient penultimate web service debugging tool because its simplicity and ease of use.

Querystrings break authentication. Pretty useless until this is fixed.

Looks nicer now, but need to scroll up and down. Looks more compact in 2.0.1 via nightly build, but querystring still doesn't work. Sticking with 1.3.5 until then.

Still better than any of the chrome clients, and when this is fixed it will be a five star app. Unfortunately, functionality is more important than looks.

I hope the new released 2.0.3 will fix your problem ;)

patience... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After the 2.0.0 release, I emailed Chao with a "WTF?". He's is fixing it...

This REST Client still rocks; give him a little break before you flame, fer Christ's sake!

BTW the REST Client for Chrome is awful. It can't handle HTTPS without choking. Give Chao a chance to work it out; he'll clean it up. Maybe you can stop gripping and volunteer to help him code?

What a drag. This tool was fantastic. Now it isn't even usable. Oh well; One less reason to use Firefox Uninstalling now. I think there is a decent REST client for chrome.

The product WAS great. Now, it just looks great, but is not really usable any more.

Version 2.0.1 is much better than version 2.0.0; But not so great, as 1.3.x. Much functions are more than one click away (headers, open request), custom request headers are not visible with one look. You get much slower while working with it due to the bad usability.

Be careful! I imported an 1.3.x request to my favorites (renamed it from .txt to .json) in version 2.0.0 since I have not found a way to import them correctly. Favorites are now not usable any more. You break the tool! And you can't undo it! At least, I have not found a way :-/

Please give us back the good old restclient!

Get v2.0.1 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

v2.0.1 is much better than v2.0.0. Most of the functionality that was broken by v2.0.0 seems to be back. Just need some time to get used to the new UI
