Httpry – HTTP logging and information retrieval tool

Sponsored Link
httpry is a tool, written in C, designed for displaying and logging HTTP traffic. It parses traffic, online and offline,in an easy to read format. Daemonization is also supported for long-term logging. Before I discovered httpry I was parsing HTTP traffic from pcaps with ngrep and lots of ugly sed and awk to make my results readable. Doing this wasn’t very pretty and tended to consume more time than I would have liked, however, with httpry none of the extra work is needed.

Install httpry on Ubuntu

Open the terminal and run the following commands

sudo apt-get install build-essential git libpcap0.8-dev

git clone

cd httpry
