Advanced REST Client / Description
A better API testing tool!
Save your time with the easiest API testing tool out there. No complicated forms and scripts. Easy to use yet very powerful.
The only REST client that makes connection directly on socket giving you full control over the connection and request/response headers.
Note: You must use valid certificate (for secured connections) to use this app. Get free SSL certificate from letsencrypt.org. Alternatively check "use XHR" to disable socket and use Chrome's regular connection.
You can set up proxy in Chrome settings if you having trouble connection to the remote machine.
To run the app go to New tab page, then click "Apps" on the top bar and find the ARC icon. The app also installs itself in the system's apps search. On MacOS it's command+space, on windows it's a windows button. Type there app name to find the app.
