Google-chrome – Storing a HTTP POST request in a bookmark or something similar as you would with a GET request

bookmarksgoogle-chromehttp

You can store a bookmark with a GET request like this:

http://url.com/service?variable=value

Can you store a POST request in some way in Chrome? Maybe with a plugin? Or maybe in Firefox?

The idea is that I store this in a bookmark and fire it quickly instead of having to fill up a form every time.

The idea is that I store this in a bookmark and fire it quickly instead of having to fill up a form every time.

For this purpose, the following HTML page will do. It should work in most browsers.

<html>
    <head>
        <title>getToPost</title>
        <script>
            function getToPost()
            {
                var form = document.getElementsByTagName('form')[0];
                form.style.visibility = 'hidden';
                form.action = document.location.hash.substr(1);
                var search = decodeURIComponent(document.location.search);
                search = search.substr(1).split('&');
                for(var i = 0, j = search.length, input; i < j; i++)
                {
                    input = document.createElement('input');
                    search[i] = search[i].split('=');
                    input.name = search[i][0];
                    input.value = search[i][1];
                    form.appendChild(input);
                }
                form.submit();
            }
        </script>
    </head>
    <body onload="getToPost()">
        <form method="POST"></form>
    </body>
</html>

Save it as C:\getToPost and you can bookmark the following URL:

file:///C:/getToPost?name1=value1&name2=value2#http://url.com/service

You'll be able to use most characters in names or values literally. Encode the following as usual:

#   ->   %23
%   ->   %25
&   ->   %26
=   ->   %3D
