Hurl – curl, but sicker.

leave a comment »

One of the more useful things to come out of Rails Rumble this year is a fantastic little service called Hurl. Put simply, it allows you to set a URL and HTTP headers, and then displays the resultant content, be it HTML, XML, JSON, whatever. It’s a great little tool for developers exploring APIs such as Twitter, Facebook, Delicious. It’s curl on steroids. And it’s great.

Kudos to Chris Wanstrath and Leah Culver for a great little tool.

I aim to actually keep this blog alive. I’ll be posting about stuff I’m doing at Nature Publishing Group (where I work as a senior developer in the new products team), and stuff I’m doing for (the music start-up I part-own and run).

It’ll be a mix of things about coding, music, random interesting things and probably a few pictures and anecdotes about my kids doing crazy/amazing/funny things. So settle down, pour a glass of red and soak it up.

Thanks, Steve
