If installed through pip or brew, you can use httpstat as a command:

httpstat httpbin.org/post -X POST –data-urlencode “a=b” -v

export HTTPSTAT_SHOW_IP=falseexport HTTPSTAT_SHOW_SPEED=trueexport HTTPSTAT_SAVE_BODY=false

Bash: b4b4r07/httpstat This is what exactly I want to do at the very beginning, but gave up due to not confident in my bash skill, good job!
Node: yosuke-furukawa/httpstat b4b4r07 mentioned this in his article , could be used as a HTTP client also.
Go: davecheney/httpstat I’m practicing Go recently, it’s happy to read and learn from this one.
Go (library): tcnksm/go-httpstat Other than being a cli tool, this project is used as library to help debugging latency of HTTP requests in Go code, very thoughtful and useful, see more in this article
PHP: talhasch/php-httpstat The PHP implementation by @talhasch
