Overview

The HTTPClient class provides several methods for accessing Web resources via HTTP.

HTTPClient instance is designed to be MT-safe. You can call a HTTPClient instance from several threads without synchronization after setting up an instance.

clnt = HTTPClient.new
clnt.set_cookie_store('/home/nahi/cookie.dat')
urls.each do |url|
  Thread.new(url) do |u|
    p clnt.head(u).status
  end
end

How to use

At first, how to create your client. See initialize for more detail.

  1. Create simple client.

    clnt = HTTPClient.new
  2. Accessing resources through HTTP proxy. You can use environment variable 'http_proxy' or 'HTTP_PROXY' instead.

    clnt = HTTPClient.new('http://myproxy:8080')

How to retrieve web resources

See get_content.

  1. Get content of specified URL. It returns a String of whole result.

    puts clnt.get_content('http://dev.ctor.org/')
  2. Get content as chunks of String. It yields chunks of String.

    clnt.get_content('http://dev.ctor.org/') do |chunk|
      puts chunk
    end

Invoking other HTTP methods

See head, get, post, put, delete, options, propfind, proppatch and trace. It returns a HTTP::Message instance as a response.

  1. Do HEAD request.

    res = clnt.head(uri)
    p res.header['Last-Modified'][0]
  2. Do GET request with query.

    query = { 'keyword' => 'ruby', 'lang' => 'en' }
    res = clnt.get(uri, query)
    p res.status
    p res.contenttype
    p res.header['X-Custom']
    puts res.content

How to POST

See post.

  1. Do POST a form data.

    body = { 'keyword' => 'ruby', 'lang' => 'en' }
    res = clnt.post(uri, body)
  2. Do multipart file upload with POST. No need to set extra header by yourself from httpclient/2.1.4.

    File.open('/tmp/post_data') do |file|
      body = { 'upload' => file, 'user' => 'nahi' }
      res = clnt.post(uri, body)
    end

Accessing via SSL

Ruby needs to be compiled with OpenSSL.

  1. Get content of specified URL via SSL. Just pass an URL which starts with 'https://'.

    https_url = 'https://www.rsa.com'
    clnt.get_content(https_url)
  2. Getting peer certificate from response.

    res = clnt.get(https_url)
    p res.peer_cert #=> returns OpenSSL::X509::Certificate
  3. Configuring OpenSSL options. See HTTPClient::SSLConfig for more details.

    user_cert_file = 'cert.pem'
    user_key_file = 'privkey.pem'
    clnt.ssl_config.set_client_cert_file(user_cert_file, user_key_file)
    clnt.get_content(https_url)

Handling Cookies

  1. Using volatile Cookies. Nothing to do. HTTPClient handles Cookies.

    clnt = HTTPClient.new
    clnt.get_content(url1) # receives Cookies.
    clnt.get_content(url2) # sends Cookies if needed.
  2. Saving non volatile Cookies to a specified file. Need to set a file at first and invoke save method at last.

    clnt = HTTPClient.new
    clnt.set_cookie_store('/home/nahi/cookie.dat')
    clnt.get_content(url)
    ...
    clnt.save_cookie_store
  3. Disabling Cookies.

    clnt = HTTPClient.new
    clnt.cookie_manager = nil

Configuring authentication credentials

  1. Authentication with Web server. Supports BasicAuth, DigestAuth, and Negotiate/NTLM (requires ruby/ntlm module).

    clnt = HTTPClient.new
    domain = 'http://dev.ctor.org/http-access2/'
    user = 'user'
    password = 'user'
    clnt.set_auth(domain, user, password)
    p clnt.get_content('http://dev.ctor.org/http-access2/login').status
  2. Authentication with Proxy server. Supports BasicAuth and NTLM (requires win32/sspi)

    clnt = HTTPClient.new(proxy)
    user = 'proxy'
    password = 'proxy'
    clnt.set_proxy_auth(user, password)
    p clnt.get_content(url)

Invoking HTTP methods with custom header

Pass a Hash or an Array for extheader argument.

extheader = { 'Accept' => '*/*' }
clnt.get_content(uri, query, extheader)

extheader = [['Accept', 'image/jpeg'], ['Accept', 'image/png']]
clnt.get_content(uri, query, extheader)

Invoking HTTP methods asynchronously

See head_async, get_async, post_async, put_async, delete_async, options_async, propfind_async, proppatch_async, and trace_async. It immediately returns a HTTPClient::Connection instance as a returning value.

connection = clnt.post_async(url, body)
print 'posting.'
while true
  break if connection.finished?
  print '.'
  sleep 1
end
puts '.'
res = connection.pop
p res.status
p res.content.read # res.content is an IO for the res of async method.

Shortcut methods

You can invoke get_content, get, etc. without creating HTTPClient instance.

ruby -rhttpclient -e 'puts HTTPClient.get_content(ARGV.shift)' http://dev.ctor.org/
ruby -rhttpclient -e 'p HTTPClient.head(ARGV.shift).header["last-modified"]' http://dev.ctor.org/

Constructor Details

#initialize(*args) ⇒ HTTPClient

Creates a HTTPClient instance which manages sessions, cookies, etc.

HTTPClient.new takes 3 optional arguments for proxy url string, User-Agent String and From header String. User-Agent and From are embedded in HTTP request Header if given. No User-Agent and From header added without setting it explicitly.

proxy = 'http://myproxy:8080'
agent_name = 'MyAgent/0.1'
from = 'from@example.com'
HTTPClient.new(proxy, agent_name, from)

You can use a keyword argument style Hash. Keys are :proxy, :agent_name and :from.

HTTPClient.new(:agent_name = 'MyAgent/0.1')

#get_content(uri, query = nil, extheader = {}, &block) ⇒ Object

Retrieves a web resource.

uri

a String or an URI object which represents an URL of web resource.

query

a Hash or an Array of query part of URL. e.g. { “a” => “b” } => 'host/part?a=b'. Give an array to pass multiple value like

[“a”, “b”], [“a”, “c”]

> 'host/part?a=b&a=c'.

extheader

a Hash or an Array of extra headers. e.g. { 'Accept' => '/' } or [['Accept', 'image/jpeg'], ['Accept', 'image/png']].

&block

Give a block to get chunked message-body of response like get_content(uri) { |chunked_body| … }. Size of each chunk may not be the same.

get_content follows HTTP redirect status (see HTTP::Status.redirect?) internally and try to retrieve content from redirected URL. See redirect_uri_callback= how HTTP redirection is handled.

If you need to get full HTTP response including HTTP status and headers, use get method. get returns HTTP::Message as a response and you need to follow HTTP redirect by yourself if you need.

Returns NO_PROXY setting String if given.



411
412
413
# File 'lib/httpclient.rb', line 411

def no_proxy
  @no_proxy
end

#no_proxy=(no_proxy) ⇒ Object

Sets NO_PROXY setting String. no_proxy must be a comma separated String. Each entry must be 'host' or 'host:port' such as; HTTPClient#no_proxy = 'example.com,example.co.jp:443'

'localhost' is treated as a no_proxy site regardless of explicitly listed. HTTPClient checks given URI objects before accessing it. 'host' is tail string match. No IP-addr conversion.

You can use environment variable 'no_proxy' or 'NO_PROXY' for it.

Calling this method resets all existing sessions.

def proxy
  @proxy
end

#proxy=(proxy) ⇒ Object

Sets HTTP proxy used for HTTP connection. Given proxy can be an URI, a String or nil. You can set user/password for proxy authentication like HTTPClient#proxy = 'user:passwd@myproxy:8080'

You can use environment variable 'http_proxy' or 'HTTP_PROXY' for it. You need to use 'cgi_http_proxy' or 'CGI_HTTP_PROXY' instead if you run HTTPClient from CGI environment from security reason. (HTTPClient checks 'REQUEST_METHOD' environment variable whether it's CGI or not)

Calling this method resets all existing sessions.

#request(method, uri, query = nil, body = nil, extheader = {}, &block) ⇒ Object

Sends a request to the specified URL.

method

HTTP method to be sent. method.to_s.upcase is used.

uri

a String or an URI object which represents an URL of web resource.

query

a Hash or an Array of query part of URL. e.g. { “a” => “b” } => 'host/part?a=b' Give an array to pass multiple value like

[“a”, “b”], [“a”, “c”]

> 'host/part?a=b&a=c'

body

a Hash or an Array of body part. e.g. { “a” => “b” } => 'a=b'. Give an array to pass multiple value like

[“a”, “b”], [“a”, “c”]

> 'a=b&a=c'.

When the given method is 'POST' and the given body contains a file as a value, it will be posted as a multipart/form-data. e.g. { 'upload' => file } See HTTP::Message.file? for actual condition of 'a file'.

extheader

a Hash or an Array of extra headers. e.g. { 'Accept' => '/' } or [['Accept', 'image/jpeg'], ['Accept', 'image/png']].

&block

Give a block to get chunked message-body of response like get(uri) { |chunked_body| … }. Size of each chunk may not be the same.

You can also pass a String as a body. HTTPClient just sends a String as a HTTP request message body.

When you pass an IO as a body, HTTPClient sends it as a HTTP request with chunked encoding (Transfer-Encoding: chunked in HTTP header). Bear in mind that some server application does not support chunked request. At least cgi.rb does not support it.

#set_auth(domain, user, passwd) ⇒ Object

Sets credential for Web server authentication.

domain

a String or an URI to specify where HTTPClient should use this

credential.  If you set uri to nil, HTTPClient uses this credential
wherever a server requires it.

user

username String.

passwd

password String.

You can set multiple credentials for each uri.

clnt.set_auth('http://www.example.com/foo/', 'foo_user', 'passwd')
clnt.set_auth('http://www.example.com/bar/', 'bar_user', 'passwd')

Calling this method resets all existing sessions.
