HTTPie, a powerful an extendable command line HTTP client.

A while ago, I found an interesting project on GitHub: HTTPie, a powerful an extendable command line HTTP client.

HTTPie (pronounced aitch-tee-tee-pie) is a command line HTTP client. Its goal is to make CLI interaction with web services as human-friendly as possible. It provides a simple http command that allows for sending arbitrary HTTP requests using a simple and natural syntax, and displays colorized output. HTTPie can be used for testing, debugging, and generally interacting with HTTP servers.

Microsoft reportedly agrees to buy GitHub, and now what?

Since a few days, there are a lot of rumors that Microsoft is in talks to acquire GitHub. These rumors heated up on Sunday, where the first reports appeared, that the deal is done and that the coding site was acquired by the software giant from Redmond.

The news started two things:

  1. Twitter goes wild with a lot of negative tweets
  2. Many projects immediately started to flee towards GitLab

Honestly I’m still wondering why there is so much hate involved and why so many try to escape from GitHub. Wake up and smell the Coffee! If Microsoft acquires GitHub, nothing will change short term! Don’t panic…

GitLab did the right thing and send a congratulations message towards GitHub. And if you see how many projects moved since yesterday, that might be the best that could happen to GitLab. At least from the marketing perspective.
