- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 13471378, 5 years agoI can enter a request and send it off, but I never get a response nor an error code shown.
I tried with several known services, which worked in the previous version of Firefox with the RESTClient addon.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Sudisk, 5 years agoThis is a good start, however there are some useful features that could be expanded.
- Expand URL Template variable to header values
- Extract (JSonPath or XPath) results from request to a variable
- Keep the response of the request in the history
- Display/Esport the full raw transaction (back and forth) for debugging /sharing purposes
Thanks for this nice tool.
Edit: I don't seem to be able to add a request to a collection, the button does nothing whatever state the collections are in. Maybe am I missing something ?
- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 13201205, 5 years agoGood REST-Client. A search for the history would be useful!
The response area should be more present. So change the position of reponse and history - or at least let the user change the place.
- Rated 5 out of 5by ron190, 6 years agoIt works like a charm, thank you for your great extension.
I see only one thing to change, if you send a request body using POST/PUT and then you switch to send a DELETE, it continues to send the hidden request body from previous POST/PUT. It shouldn't send the previous body I guess.
- Rated 2 out of 5by elmanou, 6 years agoI used it and saved some useful requests until all of them were lost. It's a useful and functional extension but not reliable for preserving historyYeah, sorry about that. RESTED just went from 0.x to 1.0, and is now considered stable. i.e. there will be no breaking changes going forward.
The reason this happened was because the extension was upgraded from a Firefox extension to a WebExtension, and also replaced the storage backend. Mozilla does not currently offer any way to prevent automatic upgrades, even if the version number was to go from 0.0.1 to 20.0.0. On the plus side, the problems many people have seen with the storage backend should now be resolved, so it should be more stable in the future.
If you wish to recover your old collections, it may be possible to go into the old versions of RESTED (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/rested/versions) and download version 0.9.1 and see if your collections are still there. If they are, you can export your collections and import them to the new version.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Craig, 6 years agoJust wanted to update my review. Since the breaking changes that happened 4-5 months ago this add-on has been stable and working flawlessly.
My biggest issue now with the add-on is the UI is a little on the clunky side. Still very usable but there is room for improvement as well.
I do recommend this add-on.
Disclaimer to users: I do no perform a lot of REST-based operations. I have a list of REST calls that I have saved and forget about until I need one for a specific reason.
Overall this add-on is very good and works well.
A recent update to it (0.x to 1.x) had some big changes and caused all saved REST calls to be deleted because of a technology change of the add-on.
This is a very unfortunate incident but I'm going to assume that how it works now will be stable for the foreseeable future.Hi, thanks for leaving feedback!
I'm sorry to have cleared your collections, I know this is painful. As you may have read elsewhere, Firefox will automatically update extensions regardless of version number. But, in case you were not aware of this, there is actually an export feature in the settings menu (the cog wheel above the request) :)
If you wish to recover your old collections, it may be possible to go into the old versions of RESTED (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/rested/versions) and download version 0.9.1 and see if your collections are still there. If they are, you can export your collections and import them to the new version. If you try this, please leave a comment with your experience.
Also, I can assure you that this should never happen again. I batched all the breaking changes together, making sure that the extension now is worthy of 1.0, i.e. a stable version.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 12552900, 6 years agoAll my collections was deleted without any warning in the last automatic update. The warning showed after the update. All my work are lost. :(Yes, unfortunately Mozilla does not provide a way to handle semantic versioning, so an update from 0.x to 1.x will be automatically applied without any question.
You can try to install the old version from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/rested/versions/ and do an export if your collections are still there.
The clearing of the store is unfortunately unavoidable, as the 1.0 update both upgraded RESTED from a firefox extension to a webextension, and changed the storage backend from IndexedDB to chrome.storage. No migration other than manual user migration is possible.
Sorry for your pain
