About linux : Linux-cURL-to-Windows-cURL-in-bat-file

Question Detail

I have been trying for a few days to figure out how to convert a cURL command that works perfectly in the Linux terminal but just can’t figure out how to format it correctly so that I can use it in a windows bat file. Any help would be highly appreciated.

The Linux cURL command that works perfectly in Linux:

curl -X PUT \
-H 'Accept:application/json; charset=utf-8' \
-H 'Content-type:application/json; charset=utf-8' \
http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/_defaultServer_/vhosts/_defaultVHost_/applications/testlive/pushpublish/mapentries/ppsource \
   "serverName": "_defaultServer_",
   "sourceStreamName": "newStream",
   "entryName": "ppsource",
   "profile": "rtmp",
   "host": "localhost",
   "application": "testlive",
   "userName": "testUser",
   "password": "pass",
   "streamName": "myStream"

How can I do the same in windows cmd?

Question Answer

  • Change single quotes to double quotes
  • Change the line continuation character from \ to ^
  • Check the effective command with echo on

Or use a browser (using windows), open the developer mode (F12) and copy a network entry with copy as windows curl

If a line contains only a single or an odd number of quotes, the last quote has to be escaped, that ensures the caret at the line end still works.


echo on

curl -X PUT ^
-H 'Accept:application/json; charset=utf-8' ^
-H 'Content-type:application/json; charset=utf-8' ^
 "serverName": "_defaultServer_",^

Okay, so I managed to figure it out with the suggestions from others on here and a few other websites.

curl -X PUT ^
-H "Accept:application/json; charset=utf-8" ^
-H "Content-type:application/json; charset=utf-8" ^
"http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/_defaultServer_/vhosts/_defaultVHost_/applications/testlive/pushpublish/mapentries/ppsource" -d "{^
\"serverName\": \"_defaultServer_\",^
\"sourceStreamName\": \"newStream\",^
\"entryName\": \"ppsource\",^
\"profile\": \"rtmp\",^
\"host\": \"localhost\",^
\"application\": \"testlive\",^
\"userName\": \"\",^
\"password\": \"\",^
\"streamName\": \"myStream\"^

Use carret ^ as a line continuation symbol instead of backslash \, and doublequote all string instead of singlequoute. Include line termination to json at the end.
