Welcome to the Book of Jason! This is a place I store random bits of knowledge, trivia, and wisdom that I discover along my journey. I’m keenly interested in technology, science, leadership, people, culture and theology.
iCurlHTTP and iOS Development
iCurlHTTP is a simple, easy to use app that allows you to run MacOS/Linux-like cURL tests against URLs. It can simulate different web browsers (user-agents) to retrieve the raw HTTP headers and HTML response from web servers. Want to know the history and build details on how iCurlHTTP came about? Read this blog post.
