Requestly allows you to modify network requests. Main features include:
**Modify URL of the request**
Requestly allows you to modify the url of ongoing request and you can change the url to something else. Common examples include
– Setting up Redirects (eg, facebook.com -> quora.com)
– Creating URL shortcuts (e.g. Type j-1 in address bar will open jira.corp.example.com/projects/jira-1).
– Switching Hosts (All requests for xyz.com should go to abc.com)
– Block websites (e.g. Block social media websites to stay productive)
– Modify some part of URL (be it host, path, query parameters etc)
– Stay way from time killing sites. Setup rules like when source contains facebook.com or twitter.com then redirect to StackOverflow and do some geeky stuff.
– Test your JS running in production environment. Simply redirect your JS from prod to JS from your local setup box and test if your fix/code actually works in production site.
– Run scripts on website and customize the web pages you want
– Support your script with popular libraries like jQuery and underscore.
– Use FileHosting service to upload long scripts and get a URL to be used in your websites or Requestly rules
– Very similar to GreaseMonkey or TamperMonkey user scripts
**File Hosting (Library Service)**
– Host JS/CSS Files and use the URLs inside Requestly rules. No need to setup local server
** Modify Headers**
– – Modify HTTP Request & Response headers (Extremely helpful for web developers for debugging applications)
** Modify User Agent**
– Setup different user agents for websites and test how they behave
– Useful for web developers for testing cross-device compatibility
– Deactivate the extension when you don't need it.
– Enable/Disable the rules with just single click
– Export and import the rules and maintain a backup for your rules (They are important, you will know)
– Share Rules with other Users in one click
– Browser Sync is enabled so you create/change your rules in one browser and the changes will automatically be reflected in another.
Additionally, Requestly provides a very user friendly interface to setup your rules. You can toggle a rule with a single click. No need to delete a rule when you don't need it. Just make that inactive and activate it later whenever you need it again.
