@frassmith @joostschuur to do web things :) no, really, this _might_ come in handy for web development. I still don't see advantages of this over cURL or Wget. If the maker @eliangcs would like to point some of those, or even other use cases, we would love to hear about that

@joantune The autocomplete alone is awesome, and will save a lot of time compared to plain cURL or wget.

@sjelfull hmm the autocomplete will just work for the known http headers and such, right? or it learns and starts suggesting stuff like POST content and whatnot? [perhaps based on context] Still, even if only for that, you're right. Going back to this, it reminds me of GraphQL, which defines what is acceptable and has auto complete on some of its tools.
