only last week (OAuth2.0 and Analytics plugins
) but it’s already used in mission critical production environments, from small VC backed startups to Global2000.

It is with a great pleasure that we introduce Mockbin
, service to help developers mock, test, and track HTTP calls with ease!
As maintainers of the popular Unirest HTTP Library
and Mashape API marketplace
supporting more than 10,000 APIs, we’re always testing against edge cases, and a variety of HTTP calls.

Hopefully you can look past our mistake and see the value in this project.
Since yesterday, we have decided on a new name, Unirest, which we think is a great fit for the project. We also made a new website
, changed out all the…
