req

a CLI for request

req is a very simple command line wrapper around Mikeal Roger's excellent request library.

Usage:

req [method] uri

Method is optional and will default to GET if not specified. URI is required (obviously).

Additional supported flags are..

-h/--headers
    add the given header to the object passed to request, ie: -h content-type=text/plain
-o/--options
    add the given option to the object passed to request, ie: -o encoding=binary
-q/--query
    add the given query to the querystring object passed to request, ie: -q search=turtles
-f/--file
    use the given file as the body in the request
-d/--data
    use the data as the body in the request (note that both of these attempt to guess a valid content-type)
-v   
    verbose. will console.log the arguments object before it sends the request.
