trurl is a tool in a similar spirit of tr but for URLs. Here, 'tr' stands for translate or transpose.

trurl is a command line tool that parses and manipulates URLs, designed to help shell script authors everywhere.

URLs are tricky to parse and there are numerous security problems in software because of this. trurl wants to help soften this problem by taking away the need for script and command line authors everywhere to re-invent the wheel over and over.

trurl uses libcurl URL parser and will thus parse and understand URLs exactly the same as curl the command line tool does – making it the perfect companion tool.


We say "trurel". As if there was an 'e' between the 'r' and 'l' at the end.
