Paw

3.1.9
07 October 2019

Interact with Representational State Transfer (REST) services.

Overview

Paw is a full-featured and beautifully designed Mac app that makes interaction with REST services delightful. Either you are an API maker or consumer, Paw helps you build HTTP requests, inspect the server's response and even generate client code.

Features
  • Code Generation - Build your HTTP requests with Paw, try them out, and just copy/paste code in your app. We support most popular languages. Build your custom code generator via Extensions.
  • Dynamic Values - Unleash your capabilities. Access data from previous responses, so you can send back whatever the server returned. Compute hashes, authentication tokens, signatures, randomize data for testing, do some maths, or anything you want. Paw comes with a large set of Dynamic Values, and you can write your own in JavaScript via Extensions.
  • Environments - Parametrize your Requests with Environment Variables, then seamlessly switch between Environments to give differents values to your variables. Ideal to setup production or test servers, or have multiple users profiles.
  • Formatters - Time matters. Paw helps you build HTTP requests quickly thanks to formatters that matches the kind of input you need.
  • Extensions - You can now extend the already broad features Paw offers through easy to build JavaScript-based Extensions. Either you want to have generated client code for your favorite yet exotic language or you want to compute custom authentication schemes on the fly, extensions give a way to make this happen.

I love this app - every time I need to debug some funy network request, or check out the HTTP headers in details, Paw is always my go-to tool.

This is a completely amazing tool that does everything but capture the communications between the source and the target for analysis. (if it could do that like Cellist...) I have been using this tool for months and the feature set, capability and utility are superb. I have downloaded all other similar 'free' and "In app purchase" style competitors and none come close to comparing against Paw. Paw builds the HTTP (REST or really SOAP too) requests, allows you to execute them, even in some instances lets you chain response data from one response as input to another request. If you don't know how HTTP URL parameters, body parameters, forms, Oauth work (or even think you do) Paw is an excellent playground to experiment and learn. It is as much as of an interactive learning tool as it is a development tool (sign of good software, is how PageMaker launched the era of Desktop Publishing) Now if that was not enough, Paw can then teach you how Cocoa in Objective C or Swift works with NSURLConnection or NSURLSession classes by using the real-time code generation plugins to see the code generate as you change the URL parameters. Paw is like having a second team-mate, or a kindly mentor there working with you. Paw is not cheap at $50... but it is only expensive if you time is worth nothing with cheaper tools. And don't forget to check out Paw Prints, the interactive web tool account that comes with Paw. Best software purchase I made in 2016 at any price. And if it could capture HTTP traffic with a MTM function and generate the REST calls... that would be amazing.

This was a great app until version 3. Had no problem at the time paying for version 2. The nag screen refuses to go away on start now with version 3. Went through the website and everything to do the upgrade process. Pretty invasive. Reverting back.

Best part, version 3 corrupted all my .paw files and they can no longer be opened. Awesome.

Excellent tool, very flexible. Highly recommended. The ability to chain together requests is invaluable.

Nothing better than Paw for developing applications and creating workflow that relies on RESTful services. I used it while debugging a bus-stop applet for my iPhone and couldn't be happier. Purchased a license after evaluating the other options out there and finding them lacking. Also because someone that never even used the software gave it a one-star review because their tinfoil hat was on too tight.

Paw immediately phones home and a licensing window pops up. The demo version doesn't even run without a connection to some remote server. I'd rather fiddle with cURL for the rest of my life than pay for DRM infested spyware, so I immediately removed the app.

Really? "phones home"? To what? To validate your demo license? I am going to happily pay for what you call DRM infested spyware on the basis of you not knowing what spyware or DRM are.

This app is really helpful with a great interface. So helpful that in addition to the Mac App Store version I bought the Non-Mac-App-Store version too (which was discounted at the time, but still ...).

Totally agree with you, however this is most definitely legitimate software and has good reviews elsewhere - I think the lack of good reviews is probably because of the small niche. I doubt most MacUpdate users are developers.
