This bug https://github.com/nathan-osman/REST-Easy/issues/76 makes the addon almost useless, and for now it seems to stay unfixed for a month already.
The bug is that you cannot perform POST requests with payload having Content-Type other than text/plain. It made the addon completely unuseable for me.
A great add ons very easy and complete! good job! think about the save function to create template of rest call for easy and massive testing functions!
Interface claire et intuitive
Je n'ai pas besoin de fonctions compliquées, mais ce que REST Easy fait, il le fait bien et ça me convient.
Very good and perfect in what it does, interface quick to understand. but i wish to see a way we could view history and favourite url's. awesome tool
I'm just missing a way to save my frequent requests but overall, great job.
When I go to preview tab for JSON responses, I am getting message "Unable to preview this content type.". Is there a plan to implement this? Even In "Raw" tab also if it can be presented in proper format, it would be useful.
Could not send requests to specific port.
Good interface, but bad layout.

Another reviewer noted that s/he couldn't see the app in the Web Development tools but then didn't tell the rest of us how to find it. And yet another person was pleading to know where to find this tool after adding it. I've spent way too much time but finally found it in the menu bar at the top right in Firefox. it does NOT show up in web development tools. I haven't event tried using it yet and it is already a frustrating tool, but hopefully the functionality will make up for the starting performance.
Despite what the intro text says, it doesn't actually appear in the Web Developer menu on my Firefox, which almost made me give up on it because I just couldn't find where it was.
Otherwise, in my use case it was useless because it doesn't have a file upload functionality.
The beautiful UI is the first reason that I used it!
Great extension, just 4 feature missing:
1) edit of parameters (both name and value)
2) disable a parameter without deleting it (like a checkbox)
3) possibility to save/bookmark the request
4) history of the call
Great extension. Actually better than most desktop REST test clients I could find. Easy to use, clear, beautiful UI.
Just two improvements needed:
1. POSTing raw data (ie. not as form multipart fields)
2. Cannot resize columns which can be frustrating when you have to view complex responses in half the screen.
Otherwise, definitely recommended.
Both of these features are now available in the latest update.
This is a really easy tool to use, however, i'd love to have a "save current Request" for later use.
Some requests i have have a lot of parameters, and entering them every time i want to test is a hassle.
- The UI is decent and pleasing.
- Autocomplete of header names is good
- Cannot POST raw JSON data - Big let down. Went back to Poster because of this.
The ability to POST raw JSON data has been implemented in the latest version but it's still waiting for approval from Mozilla.
Please can some one describe detailed how to launch REST easy from Web Developer console. I cant find an entry to launch it. May be there isn't an entry I use the german version of Firefox. Sorry for beeing a dumb.
its fun to use good interface.
Very good, great work!
First of all, great to have this on Firefox and would love to give this 5 stars: If it would provide a history functionality, possibly even 'favourites' and make editing headers easier (right now you have to delete and add again) as well as adding the aforementioned JSONView than this already wonderful addon would really kick ass.
Support for displaying prettified JSON was just added this morning and the other two features are planned for a future release. (Editing headers is probably going to be in the next release.)
Please add feature to reviewing JSON structure like JSONView (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/jsonview/?src=search).
You forgot to add PUT &amp;amp; DELETE request types, but it is still useful. Anybody can add them himself.
1) For doing that just go to the profile/extensions
2) Copy the restEasy@*.com.zip to your project folder
3) unpack it
4) navigate to the file restEasy/content/js/resteasy.js
5) add PUT and DELETE in line 46.
6) zip the restEasy folder, rename to xpi
7) install the new xpi file
just install the actual version from github
All in one it's a nice written and very helpful add-on, many thanks @Nathan.
this is the best rest client i have ever used
Interface looked nice and simple, but didn't handle basic auth for me (it used user:pw@host/resource, but my server doesn't respond with WWW-Authenticate). RESTClient did work.
Nice addon, but its usefulness is limited by the fact that you can't send XML/JSON in the request (say, by reading a file off disk), only name value pairs.
Also, it doesn't have PUT and DELETE request methods, so if you're testing a CRUD app, you're better off with curl.
I've now added the ability to send arbitrary data (including XML and JSON) as well as the missing HTTP methods. The new version is waiting for review by Mozilla and should show up soon.
Works better than other add-ons but it needs control to edit the request parameters
