Install HTTPie Mac OS X

This is a quick guide on installing HTTPie for Mac OS X systems. This is also useful if you want the python package management utility pip. An installed copy of Homebrew is a prerequisite.


The easy way

brew install httpie

Manually via pip

# install the python package provided with homebrew
brew install python

# install HTTPie with the pip utility
pip install httpie

# add the shared python folder to your path
nano ~/.bash_profile

# Add the following line to your ~/.bash_profile
export PATH=/usr/local/share/python:$PATH

# open a new terminal and give it a go
Copy link

Handy, thanks! 👍
