sublime-request

Make HTTP requests from Sublime Text.

Attach to the request command via your keyboard shortcuts or add a custom command pallete to hook into.

Getting started

Installation

This package is available under Request inside of Package Control, a Sublime Text plugin that allows for easy management of other plugins.

If you prefer the manual route, you can install the script via the following command in the Sublime Text terminal (ctrl+`) which utilizes git clone.

import os; path=sublime.packages_path(); (os.makedirs(path) if not os.path.exists(path) else None); window.run_command('exec', {'cmd': ['git', 'clone', 'https://github.com/twolfson/sublime-request', 'request'], 'working_dir': path})

Packages can be uninstalled via “Package Control: Remove Package” via the command pallete, ctrl+shift+p on Windows/Linux, command+shift+p on Mac.

Working with the plugin

By default, no keyboards shortcuts or commands are added to the command pallete.

You are left to add in your own custom features since typing out HTTP parameters every time is tedious.

To add your own custom keyboard shortcut:

  1. Open the command pallete, ctrl+shift+p on Windows/Linux, command+shift+p on Mac
  2. Navigate to “Preferences: Key Bindings - User”
  3. Inside of the top level [], add the following code
{
  "keys": ["alt+x"],
  "command": "request",
  "args": {
    "open_args": ["http://google.com/"],
    "save_to_clipboard": true
  }
}

You now have alt+x bound to download http://google.com/ to your clipboard.

Documentation

sublime-request is written on top of Python's urllib2 library (urllib in Sublime Text 3). We accept the following parameters:

  • open_args - List of arguments to pass to urllib2.urlopen/urllib.request.urlopen
  • open_kwargs - Dictionary of keyword arguments to pass to urllib2.urlopen/urllib.request.urlopen
  • read_args - List of arguments to pass to request.read
  • read_kwargs - Dictionary of keyword arguments to pass to request.read
  • save_to_clipboard - Copies result from read to clipboard

I don't know Python

This is a fact of life. Rather than creating a meta language to be just as simple, I will show you some commmon examples to draw from.

Using open “js {"open_args”: [url, data, timeout]}

// Make GET request to google.com // url = http://google.com/ {“open_args”: [“http://google.com/”]}

// Make POST request to google.com. Switches to POST when data is included // url = http://google.com/, data = “some=data” {“open_args”: [“http://google.com”, “some=data”]}

**Using read**
```js
{"read_args": [buffer_length]}

// Read all of response from request
// buffer_length = null (None in Python)
{"open_args": ["http://google.com/"]}

// Read first 100 bytes of response
// buffer_length = 100
{"open_args": ["http://google.com"], "read_args": [100]}

Examples

Ping a server

Ping a server via a key binding (requests http://localhost:3000/ when alt+x is pressed.

{
  "keys": ["alt+x"],
  "command": "request",
  "args": {
    "open_args": ["http://localhost:3000/"]
  }
}

Grab some Lorem Ipsum

Copy the first 100 characters of Lorem Ipsum to your clipboard via a key binding, alt+x.

{
  "keys": ["alt+x"],
  "command": "request",
  "args": {
    "open_args": ["http://loripsum.net/api/plaintext"],
    "read_args": [100],
    "save_to_clipboard": true
  }
}

FAQ

I want to see the results of my request.

Sublime Text comes default with an exec command which runs CLI commands in a panel. There are no official docs to my knowledge but you can find the source code via Command Pallete -> Browse Packages -> Default/exec.py@class ExecCommand.

Here is a key binding that runs curl to http://google.com/.

{
  "keys": ["alt+x"],
  "command": "exec",
  "args": {
    "cmd": ["curl", "http://google.com/"]
  }
}
