Fiddler vs Retrofit: What are the differences?

Developers describe Fiddler as "A free web debugging tool *". It is a free web debugging proxy for any browser, system or platform. It helps you debug web applications by capturing network traffic between the Internet and test computers. The tool enables you to inspect incoming and outgoing data to monitor and modify requests and responses before the browser receives them. On the other hand, *Retrofit** is detailed as "A type-safe HTTP client for Android and Java". Retrofit turns your HTTP API into a Java interface.

Fiddler and Retrofit can be primarily classified as "API" tools.

Retrofit is an open source tool with 33K GitHub stars and 6.13K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Retrofit's open source repository on GitHub.
