History: - View all your previous requests and responses. - Easily run them again. - Easily filter out the requests you're not interested in. Custom Headers: - Choose from a large range of existing request headers. - Create and save your own custom request headers. More... - View the request response in beautiful syntax highlighting (including JSON, XML, HTML and CSS). - See how long each request took to complete. - Supports GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, PATCH, HEAD and OPTIONS request methods. Custom request methods can also be added by the user. - HTTP Basic Authentication. - Responsive Design. - Dark Mode. - 100% Free. No strings attached. Note on Extension Permissions: The badly named "Read and change all your data" permission is required to send a request to any domain. YARC does not access or use your data in any way.

  • (2023-01-24) Carlos Sánchez Prieto: Amazing tool, so useful!
  • (2022-08-25) Alfonso Luna: I use other REST api test tools, but this is the only one that allows me to debug my code in phpStorm as it runs in the the browser in localhost and generates xdebug messages that can be traced. I don't understand why anyone that uses such a useful tool FOR FREE should rate it badly. Thank you very much Paul!!!
  • (2022-08-10) Brad M: This is one of the best REST tools I have ever used and its consistant between Windows, Linux, And Mac. strongly recommend.
  • (2022-08-04) Eric Conner: Its nice and handy.. missing some UI features that would make it more user friendly. Mainly being able to search the body of the requests, and making it easier to store/organize requests.
  • (2022-07-06) Aaron Chan: Great APP
  • (2022-06-30) Paul Smitton: Useful extension, instant setup, and no signup. Great work!

  • (2021-09-27) Dawid Worhacz: Not working for me. I can't pass any data to API thru GET or POST request. I'm very dissapointed :(

  • (2021-01-27) Ali Khosro: Simple and efficient! works as expected without all those new annoying bugs and features and annoyance you find in Postman. I highly recommend it. Indeed, after disappointment with some of REST Clients such as postman and ARC, I decided to write a simple rest client for myself (and others) but I searched chrome-store and find this extension. It does what it should do. My suggestion to author: please keep it as simple as it is. If you want to make money out of it, just place a few small adds. Please do not try to build a business out of it as Postman did.
  • (2021-01-27) Александр Курочка: Nice and stable application. The functionality works and has never crashed. Thank you!!!
  • (2020-12-08) Used postman - but it's getting heavy after each updates - This is the simplest and lightest among all other tools
  • (2020-11-26) johnny brasseur: Excellent , ne faisant que du Json je n'en vois pas les limites pour le moment. Peut être que charger/décharger un contenu (payload ou response) serait un plus . Merci pour ce chouette outil .
  • (2020-09-09) S Saravanan: Meets my expectation. Very Nice. Thanks to the developer
  • (2020-04-09) Akshay Shetty: go raibh maith agat
  • (2020-03-29) Binuralka: light and does its job :)
  • (2020-03-10) Mateen Ahmed Khan: i had a post call with Content-Encoding: gzip and this app is not returning the response
  • (2020-02-23) Daniel G.: Headers are broken. I'm trying to override referer and accept-encoding, but this app ignores what I enter and makes the request without them. Also, it sends data to Google (Analytics & DoubleClick)

  • (2019-12-05) Roger Frauca: Simple features but the ones I need and they work well

  • (2019-08-14) Girish BN: This is one of my personal favorite. its simple and quick to use. The USP of this would be its simplicity. Thanks for Hitz for such an useful extension. I have a wish to have description/tag box for each request, so to search later easily. can i fork it??
  • (2019-07-16) Сергей Дуванов: Sometimes there are problems with server response. The extension does not overwrite the response from the server and shows the previous one. In this case, the response code shows the correct
  • (2019-07-11) 老胡当道卧: 简洁实用方便
  • (2019-05-29) Dmitrii Zaporozhets: Nice tool! Thanks a lot!
  • (2019-04-19) Liz Spangler: No option to see raw response and doesn't even show http status or returned message body if status isn't 2xx. Not useful for testing a service.
  • (2018-10-05) madhan rajesh: Easy to use while compare with other utilities for post data purpose, but wont handle huge data getting hang...
  • (2018-06-15) Subbarao Nalagandla: Very very useful.. I Feel no need to keep the same link in the history... should consider removing duplicate links in history as the list keeps on growing.... You can provide another page for audit or time based history...
  • (2018-04-06) Jarosław Szopa: The best one; for testing RESTful services. Many thanks.
  • (2018-03-22) Pet Er: The same criticism applies to this extension, so I'll just copy it again. Returned links are not clickable, you have to paste them manually to follow them. This kills usability. Additionally, it should support templated links. As it stands it is better to use an extension to display JSON and the developer console.
  • (2018-02-22) Theresa T: GET/PUT/POST, no problem what's so ever. Love it!
  • (2018-02-12) Satya Sidhartha: Best REST test tool I have used till now.. Keep up the good work.
  • (2018-01-25) Darren Gill: This client was really helpful in my efforts to build SharePoint Workflows. Other people have reported that it is limited in only sending JSON, I can't comment on that point, but for analysis of SharePoint content responses and what I need to build SPD 2013 workflows this has been a gift horse!
  • (2018-01-12) Anirudha Gohokar: Useless for making custom requests.
  • (2017-11-10) Michael Enke: On a service which is secured via ssl certificate: Response Status: - Unknown Status Code and Response Body: There was a error in the response. This is often due to a mis-configured service. Works well with Firefox RESTED
  • (2017-10-05) Tharaka Devinda: Useless for POST with data other than JSON
  • (2017-09-15) Stuart Lowe: Great App and utility.
  • (2017-08-11) 장성권: 좀더 써봐야겠지만 잘만든거 같아요
  • (2017-07-11) Nicolas Perrin: Passe par leurs serveurs pour traiter les requêtes.
  • (2017-07-06) Gangatharan Baskaran: Excellent tool. No flaws at all. Great work.
  • (2017-05-18) Anoop Kumar: Sleek and one click console. Many thanks.
  • (2017-04-10) Md. Rakibul Hasan Khan: Where to add additional arguments for POST. No problem with GET. But not an useful app for POST request. Sorry.

    I get the following message in the response body when trying to access API. "There was a error in the response. This is often due to a mis-configured service." I can run access the exact same API successfully with postman. Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

  • (2022-02-21, v:1.1.5) James Behling: Folder Structure for Saving Calls
    When you save calls or edit favorites, allow users to create a folder structure. Allow users to export all favorites, a single favorite, or an entire folder of favorites.
  • (2022-02-15, v:1.1.5) Peter Boudreau: Response cookies are not displayed in the Response Headers tab
    Using developer tools in Chrome, I can see the full response header to a POST request as follows: Content-Length: 0 Date: Tue, 15 Feb 2022 23:20:02 GMT Expires: Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT Set-Cookie: LWSSO_COOKIE_KEY=V8vVkW_TfFEhylu7Pua8zTl8YQgKxlifXAlALuHRe-Z7zcaP9sQ2JMNzgnjcCwOtNyxQyPevL16UWmjB4JF96BRdBh93yJpOvbidunxjNFtKJBUKP0RMOoTcUi3jvc6SXYBvQrGfC3uExLvsE4bNSMpHjDQn-iQYMGJvQrDKZtKFU6Q4Bd3QtJWcq8FnMWlXHhvqrheskwMtGUKUH6qwUU4liFpjZwsvs9AkwDkrtShcekgDCemLHvaJQvdNM88LHc9OG7bTymcObQVremE3NJj93oIRicLsgcmE9_-P9wJFDlYoP5JmhqIvi44yVG;Path=/;HTTPOnly X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff X-Powered-By: ARR/3.0 X-XSS-protection: 1; mode=block However, within YARC, the 'Set-Cookie' attribute is omitted: { "content-length": "0", "date": "Tue, 15 Feb 2022 23:20:02 GMT", "expires": "Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT", "x-content-type-options": "nosniff", "x-powered-by": "ARR/3.0", "x-xss-protection": "1; mode=block" } The expiration date signals deletion of the cookie, but nevertheless, I believe the Set-Cookie attribute should still be shown. Is this a bug or is there a good reason for the behaviour?

    Dear colleague! I'm tying to send the credentials to get the rss, using your service everything is ok, but using thw xhr - I can't send them. Could you please inform me which keys do you send in "GET" for username and password?

    Would be nice if could create Curl commands

    How does this work? Thanks!
  • (2021-01-20, v:1.1.5) Peggy Sue Marlin: is there a way to re-order favorites?
    Hi, can I control the order of my Favorites? I have about 20 of them and I'd like to be able to put them in a certain order. I tried changing the ids in the Favorites json file, which worked right after I imported it, but then the order didn't seem to stay. Thanks!
  • (2020-02-12, v:1.1.2) Mario Valle: Seems YARC does not work with HTTP2
    I use YARC to debug a server built with Node.js and using HTTP2 createSecureServer(). If I contact https://localhost:4321/ it gives a -1 status. Instead, if I switch to HTTP based server that uses createServer(), it works flawlessly. Where I'm wrong? Thanks for clarifying! mario

    Hello, I have inadvertently deleted my history. I was wondering if you can provide the location of the history file so I may reload from a backup. I am on a windows platform. thank you
  • (2019-07-30, v:1.1.2) A Kost: Response window issue
    Discovered that if a rest service returns an XMLstring, YARC will display it as XML on the Response Body (RAW) page, rather than the XMLstring that it actually is. Minor issue. Love the simplicity of this client.

  • (2019-02-04, v:1.1.2) Marco M: Favorites
    Hi, I really love this application, it is very useful but It could be very great if I can create folders for my favorites so that I can group them. Thanks a lot
  • (2018-12-05, v:1.1.2) JSON
    I am trying to send JSON in a put, but the other side sees all these escaped quotes. send: {"predicTrackTable":[{"satellite_k":"Kevin","epoch_k":"2018-11-29 23:59:37.032","azimuth":76.1,"elevation":75.2}]} receive: "predicTrackTable": [ { "satellite_k": "\"Kevin\"", "epoch_k": "\"2018-11-29 23:59:37.032\"", "azimuth": "76.1", "elevation": "75.2" } ] How do I put JSON in the payload window, to avoid being spammed with needless escaped quotes everywhere?

    Where / how do I see the cookies returned by the call? Many sites return session IDs and tokens in cookies Thanks Kevin
  • (2018-02-01, v:1.1.2) Mike Marsh: Download Response
    YARC has been great for working with the API for a learning management system my university uses. Currently, though, I have to copy responses to the clipboard and paste them into files if I want to save the output. It would be incredibly helpful to be able to directly download the responses.
  • (2017-11-08, v:1.1.1) ri chas: Keeps saying its corrupt
    Each time I click on the icon to open the extension, the icon disappears and the site isn't displayed. If I go back into extensions, it is still listed but it says "this extension has been corrupted". There is a repair button which brings it back, but even after that when I click to open it again, the same thing happens. I also tried completely removing it and reinstalling it. That made no difference.
