    the HTTP verb

  • url (#to_s)

    the addition to the base url component, or a complete URL

  • headers (Hash)

    a hash of headers, "Accept" will be automatically set to an empty string if not provided

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    any overriding options (will shadow the options from the Session object)

Returns:

  • (Patron::Request)

    the request that will be passed to ++handle_request++

#get(url, headers = {}) ⇒ Patron::Response

Retrieve the contents of the specified url optionally sending the specified headers. If the +base_url+ varaible is set then it is prepended to the +url+ parameter. Any custom headers are merged with the contents of the +headers+ instance variable. The results are returned in a Response object. Notice: this method doesn't accept any data argument: if you need to send a request body with a GET request, when using ElasticSearch for example, please, use the #request method.

Parameters:

  • url (String)

    the URL to fetch

  • headers (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    the hash of header keys to values

Returns:

# File 'lib/patron/session.rb', line 187

def get(url, headers = {})
  request(:get, url, headers)
end

#get_file(url, filename, headers = {}) ⇒ Patron::Response

Retrieve the contents of the specified +url+ as with #get, but the content at the URL is downloaded directly into the specified file. The file will be accessed by libCURL bypassing the Ruby runtime entirely.

Note that when using this option, the Response object will have ++nil++ as the body, and you will need to read your target file for access to the body string).

Parameters:

  • url (String)

    the URL to fetch

  • filename (String)

    path to the file to save the response body in

Returns:

#handle_cookies(file_path = nil) ⇒ Object

TODO:

the cookie jar and cookie file path options should be split

Turn on cookie handling for this session, storing them in memory by default or in +file+ if specified. The file must be readable and writable. Calling multiple times will add more files.

Parameters:

  • file_path (String) (defaults to: nil)

    path to an existing cookie jar file, or nil to store cookies in memory

#handle_request(request) ⇒ Patron::Response

Peform the actual HTTP request by calling libcurl. Each filed in the +request+ object will be used to set the appropriate option on the libcurl library. After the request completes, a Response object will be created and returned.

In the event of an error in the libcurl library, a Ruby exception will be created and raised. The exception will return the libcurl error code and error message.

Parameters:

  • request (Patron::Request)

    the request to use when filling the CURL options

#resetObject

FIXME: figure out how this method should be used at all given Session is not multithreaded. FIXME: also: what is the difference with interrupt() and also relationship with cleanup()? Reset the underlying cURL session. This effectively closes all open connections and disables debug output. There is no need to call this method manually after performing a request, since cleanup is performed automatically but the method can be used from another thread to abort a request currently in progress.

Returns:

  • self

#response_class#new

Returns the class that will be used to build a Response from a Curl call.

Primarily useful if you need a very lightweight Response object that does not have to perform all the parsing of various headers/status codes. The method must return a module that supports the same interface for +new+ as ++Patron::Response++

Returns:

  • (#new)

    Returns any object that responds to .new with 6 arguments

#set_debug_file(file) ⇒ Object
