Request aliases for HTTPie


I am working for the company behind HTTPie and we are trying to get back unofficial packages to ease upgrades from one source.
We already “own” httpie and https, and I checked with @chipaca about reclaiming (I also send an official request, without answer so far).

We would like users to type snap install httpie and then http & https executable would be available. The current situation is that those commands are prefixed with httpie. which is not acceptable for us.

Is it possible to request http and https aliases then? Here is the snapcraft.yml file.

Another point that comes in mind: given you agreed for aliases, how does it work for users that already installed http?

Thank you in advance :slight_smile:

The aliases will be updated when they are granted and so at some point when the user gets a snap refresh of the http snap (well really the assertions but that’s an implementation detail) they will also get the aliases added automatically

+1 from me for http & https aliases since both well known commands of httpie. Can other @reviewers please vote?

Maybe @roadmr can help with this request.

+1 from me too for http & https aliases since both well known commands of httpie - +2 votes for, 0 votes against. I was going to grant this in the store but I can’t see any existing revisions uploaded to the store - can you please upload one then I will look at granting the alias. Thanks.
