Looking for a Charles alternative?
HTTP Toolkit is a modern powerful alternative to Charles
designed from the ground up for instant targeted debugging and control of any HTTP(S) traffic (with no Java necessary)
HTTP Toolkit has all the core Charles features you use, plus:
- One-click zero-configuration interception: see & rewrite HTTPS instantly, with no global CA certificates required
- Precisely targeted interception: capture traffic from just one browser window, without interfering with (or having to filter though) traffic from the rest of your machine
- Android integration for apps and mobile browsers, including automated setup, per-app interception, and system-level certificate injection for complete visibility into emulators and rooted devices
- Built-in documentation for every standard HTTP header & status code, plus specific endpoint docs & validation for 1400+ popular APIs
- Flexible rule engine for rewriting traffic so you can combine matchers with mock responses, simulated errors, timeouts, redirection and more
- One-click transformation of collected traffic into editable rules to match & mock subsequent requests, or to export collected requests as ready-to-use code for 20+ languages
All within a modern beautiful UI, available for Windows, Linux & Mac, and of course 100% open-source.
Capture HTTP(S) with zero setup
Automatic setup for targeted interception of HTTP & HTTPS from most clients, including:
- Desktop browsers like Chrome, Edge & Firefox
- Android applications and browsers
- Backend & scripting languages, like Node.js, Python & Ruby
- Almost all terminal or Electron-based applications
- More coming soon, all powered by your feedback
For platforms without automatic setup, HTTP Toolkit can be used as an HTTP(S) proxy, compatible with HTTP requests from any language or tool.
Explore, search & examine HTTP
Skim through traffic with highlighting by content type, status & source, or search by URL, status and headers to hunt down the messages that matter.
Examine the URL, status, headers & body of each request or response, with inline explanations & docs from MDN.
Dig into message bodies with highlighting & autoformatting for JSON, HTML, JS, hex and others, all using the power of Monaco, the editor from Visual Studio Code.
Pause & edit live HTTP traffic
Precisely match requests, jump to them when they appear, and edit anything: the target URL, method, headers or body.
Manually respond directly to requests as they arrive, or pass them upstream, and pause & edit the real response on the way back.
Step through HTTP traffic request by request, or manually mock endpoints and errors.
Test with fully automated mock responses Pro
Create rules to match requests and respond with your own content, to quickly prototype against new endpoints or services.
Define new endpoints, override existing ones, or replace external services, to reproduce tricky edge cases and test your error handling.
Import & export your mock rulesets, to build complex setups and share them with your team.
Inject request timeouts, simulate connection failures, and silently redirect requests from one server to another.Pro
Precise matching lets you target the requests you care about. Match any requests sent anywhere by using HTTP Toolkit as a proxy, send requests directly to use it as a mock server.
And there's more to come too!
Future plans include security analysis & metrics, session-wide performance graphs & analysis, HTTP client tooling, Docker integration & more...
