HTTP Request Shortcuts

Create home screen shortcuts that trigger arbitrary HTTP requests
Version: 2.11.0
Added: 07-09-2020
Updated: 10-11-2021
Place shortcuts (widgets) on your home screen to submit HTTP requests to all your favorite RESTful APIs, webservices and other URL resources. Great for home automation projects!


  • HTTP and HTTPS

  • GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, PATCH, HEAD, OPTIONS and TRACE

  • Basic Authentication, Digest Authentication & Bearer Authentication

  • Custom request headers

  • Custom request body (text only)

  • Upload files as form-data

  • Option to accept all certificates (if you know what you're doing)

  • Support for HTTP proxies

  • Built-in icons, support for Ipack icons and custom icons

  • Display response as a toast, window or dialog, or run silently

  • Grouping into categories through tabs

  • Value injection through variables (e.g., text, numbers, passwords, selections, colors, dates, …)

  • Run arbitrary JavaScript before & after execution, including special actions (e.g., vibrate, show toast, parse and process response…)

  • Import & Export in JSON or cURL format

  • 3rd party integration (e.g. Tasker)

  • Themes (with Dark Mode support)



Some ideas what to use HTTP shortcuts for:

  • Execute a script on your web server

  • Control your home automation system and IoT devices

  • Interact with your RaspberryPi and Arduino tinkering projects

  • Automate workflows



This app is open source, find it on Github: https://github.com/Waboodoo/HTTP-Shortcuts. It's also completely free and contains no ads, because who wants those anyway.
