====================================
 request.el -- an elisp HTTP library
====================================

Uses ``curl`` as its backend or Emacs's native ``url.el`` library if
``curl`` is not found.

The default encoding for requests is ``utf-8``.  Please explicitly specify
``:encoding 'binary`` for binary data.

Install
=======
As described in `Getting started`_, ensure melpa's whereabouts in ``init.el`` or ``.emacs``::

   (add-to-list 'package-archives '("melpa" . "https://melpa.org/packages/"))

Then

::

   M-x package-refresh-contents RET
   M-x package-install RET request RET

Alternatively, directly clone this repo and ``make install``.

Examples
========
GET:

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  (request "http://httpbin.org/get"
    :params '(("key" . "value") ("key2" . "value2"))
    :parser 'json-read
    :success (cl-function
              (lambda (&key data &allow-other-keys)
                (message "I sent: %S" (assoc-default 'args data)))))

POST:

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  (request "http://httpbin.org/post"
    :type "POST"
    :data '(("key" . "value") ("key2" . "value2"))
    ;; :data "key=value&key2=value2"  ;; this is equivalent
    :parser 'json-read
    :success (cl-function
              (lambda (&key data &allow-other-keys)
                (message "I sent: %S" (assoc-default 'form data)))))

Block until completion:

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  (request "http://httpbin.org/get"
    :sync t
    :complete (cl-function
               (lambda (&key response &allow-other-keys)
                 (message "Done: %s" (request-response-status-code response)))))

Curl authentication:

.. code:: emacs-lisp

   (request "http://httpbin.org/get"
     :auth "digest" ;; or "basic", "anyauth", etc., which see curl(1)
     :complete (cl-function
                (lambda (&key response &allow-other-keys)
                  (message "Done: %s" (request-response-status-code response)))))

Request binary data:

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  (request "http://httpbin.org/get"
    :encoding 'binary
    :complete (cl-function
               (lambda (&key response &allow-other-keys)
                 (message "Done: %s" (request-response-status-code response)))))

POST file (**WARNING**: it will send the contents of the current buffer!):

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  (request "http://httpbin.org/post"
    :type "POST"
    :files `(("current buffer" . ,(current-buffer)))
    :parser 'json-read
    :success (cl-function
              (lambda (&key data &allow-other-keys)
                (message "I sent: %S" (assoc-default 'files data)))))

Rich callback dispatch (like `jQuery.ajax`):

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  (request "http://httpbin.org/status/418"
    ;; "http://httpbin.org/status/200"  ;; success callback will be called.
    ;; "http://httpbin.org/status/400"  ;; you will see "Got 400."
    :parser 'buffer-string
    :success
    (cl-function (lambda (&key data &allow-other-keys)
                   (when data
                     (with-current-buffer (get-buffer-create "*request demo*")
                       (erase-buffer)
                       (insert data)
                       (pop-to-buffer (current-buffer))))))
    :error
    (cl-function (lambda (&rest args &key error-thrown &allow-other-keys)
                   (message "Got error: %S" error-thrown)))
    :complete (lambda (&rest _) (message "Finished!"))
    :status-code '((400 . (lambda (&rest _) (message "Got 400.")))
                   (418 . (lambda (&rest _) (message "Got 418.")))))

Flexible PARSER option:

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  (request "https://github.com/tkf/emacs-request/commits/master.atom"
    ;; Parse XML in response body:
    :parser (lambda () (libxml-parse-xml-region (point) (point-max)))
    :success (cl-function
              (lambda (&key data &allow-other-keys)
                ;; Just don't look at this function....
                (let ((get (lambda (node &rest names)
                             (if names
                                 (apply get
                                        (first (xml-get-children
                                                node (car names)))
                                        (cdr names))
                               (first (xml-node-children node))))))
                  (message "Latest commit: %s (by %s)"
                           (funcall get data 'entry 'title)
                           (funcall get data 'entry 'author 'name))))))

PUT JSON data:

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  (request "http://httpbin.org/put"
    :type "PUT"
    :data (json-encode '(("key" . "value") ("key2" . "value2")))
    :headers '(("Content-Type" . "application/json"))
    :parser 'json-read
    :success (cl-function
              (lambda (&key data &allow-other-keys)
                (message "I sent: %S" (assoc-default 'json data)))))

PUT JSON data including non-ascii strings:

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  (request "http://httpbin.org/put"
    :type "PUT"
    :data (json-encode '(("key" . "値1") ("key2" . "値2")))
    :headers '(("Content-Type" . "application/json"))
    :parser 'json-read
    :encoding 'utf-8
    :success (cl-function
              (lambda (&key data &allow-other-keys)
                (message "I sent: %S" (assoc-default 'json data)))))

Another PUT JSON example (nested JSON using alist structure, how to represent a boolean & how to selectively evaluate lisp):

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  ;; (1) Prepend alist structure with a backtick (`) rather than single quote (')
  ;;     to allow elisp evaluation of selected elements prefixed with a comma (,)
  ;; (2) This value is expected as a boolean so use the nil / t elisp alist denotation
  ;; (3) The function will be evaluated as it has been prefixed with a comma (,)
  (request "http://httpbin.org/put"
    :type "PUT"
    :data (json-encode `(("jsonArray" . (("item1" . "value 1") ;; (1)
                                         ("item2" . t)         ;; (2)
                                         ("item3" . ,(your-custom-elisp-function)))))) ;; (3)
    :headers '(("Content-Type" . "application/json"))
    :parser 'json-read
    :success (cl-function
              (lambda (&key data &allow-other-keys)
                (message "I sent: %S" (assoc-default 'json data)))))

GET with Unix domain socket data:

.. code:: emacs-lisp

  (request "http:/hello.txt"
    :unix-socket "/tmp/app.sock"
    :parser (lambda () (buffer-string))
    :success (cl-function
              (lambda (&key data &allow-other-keys)
                (message "Got: %s" data))))
