httpyac CLI provides a command line interface to execute *.http and *.rest files. This can be used to quickly execute a single *.http file, but also to execute all files in a folder.
httpyac can be easily downloaded from the npm registry
npm install -g httpyac # OR yarn global add httpyac
To upgrade the global httpyac package, you need to run:
npm update -g httpyac # OR yarn global upgrade --latest httpyac

When called without
--all it is possible to specify a single request.
httpYac supports globby queries. This allows multiple files to be marked for execution at the same time.
Usage in CI with JSON Output
It is possible to prevent all outputs and get a JSON object as result instead. The object corresponds to the following interface.
