http-twiddle.el, or, SLIME for HTTP [May. 24th, 2007|04:55 pm]
Luke Gorrie
[Tags|, , , ]

The year is 2007. Java and SOAP applications have taken over the internet. The default response to any HTTP request is "500 Internal server error." You, the fearless programmer, must devise a way to trick each server into not crashing on your requests, without the benefit of error messages, logs, or standard-compliance. XML whitespace tweaking? Tag reordering? MIME header reformatting? ROT13 encoding? Nobody hears your screams.

Your only chance is a powerful new weapon: http-twiddle.el.

HTTP Digest authorization


I'm lovin' http-twiddle.el and I just wrote up enough elisp to get Digest authorization to work. It may not be perfect code but it does work for me right now.

Should I turn it over to you? Or what?

I'm not currently maintaining http-twiddle (nor, come to think of it, any other programs). If you make improvements please post them to gnu.emacs.sources!

This is only because I'm far away from web-hacking lately.
