The easy to use HTTP request tool

REST-Explorer is an easy to use tool to query REST-based web-services or API's by using the HTTP or HTTPS protocol. It supports the methods GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, OPTIONS, TRACE, HEAD and PATCH.

A request can consist of text (JSON/XML), any kind of HTTP headers and Anonymous, Basic or Windows Authentication are supported.

Received JSON and XML data will be shown by using syntax highlighting.

There is no installation required to run REST-Explorer on Microsoft Windows clients and servers, as long as the classic Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.6.1 or higher is installed.

The user-interface is completely in english language. If you have any question about this tool please feel free to send me a short message (see /about for contact info).
