Client Examples

HTTP.request sends a HTTP Request Message and returns a Response Message.

r = HTTP.request("GET", "http://httpbin.org/ip"; verbose=3)
println(r.status)
println(String(r.body))

HTTP.open sends a HTTP Request Message and opens an IO stream from which the Response can be read.

HTTP.open("GET", "https://tinyurl.com/bach-cello-suite-1-ogg") do http
    open(`vlc -q --play-and-exit --intf dummy -`, "w") do vlc
        write(vlc, http)
    end
end

Server Examples

HTTP.Servers.listen:

HTTP.listen() do http::HTTP.Stream
    @show http.message
    @show HTTP.header(http, "Content-Type")
    while !eof(http)
        println("body data: ", String(readavailable(http)))
    end
    setstatus(http, 404)
    setheader(http, "Foo-Header" => "bar")
    startwrite(http)
    write(http, "response body")
    write(http, "more response body")
end
HTTP.listen() do request::HTTP.Request
   @show request
   @show request.method
   @show HTTP.header(request, "Content-Type")
   @show HTTP.payload(request)
   try
       return HTTP.Response("Hello")
   catch e
       return HTTP.Response(404, "Error: $e")
   end
end
