R6 classes

This is an R6 class from the package R6. Find out more about R6 at https://r6.r-lib.org/. After creating an instance of an R6 class (e.g., x <- HttpClient$new(url = "https://httpbin.org")) you can access values and methods on the object x.

Public fields

bucket_size

(integer) number of requests to send at once

sleep

(integer) number of seconds to sleep between each bucket

req_per_min

(integer) requests per minute

Methods

Inherited methods


Method print()

print method for AsyncQueue objects

Usage

AsyncQueue$print(x, ...)

Arguments

x

self

...

ignored


Method new()

Create a new AsyncQueue object

Usage

AsyncQueue$new(
  ...,
  .list = list(),
  bucket_size = 5,
  sleep = NULL,
  req_per_min = NULL
)

Arguments

..., .list

Any number of objects of class HttpRequest(), must supply inputs to one of these parameters, but not both

bucket_size

(integer) number of requests to send at once. default: 5. See Details.

sleep

(integer) seconds to sleep between buckets. default: NULL (not set)

req_per_min

(integer) maximum number of requests per minute. if NULL (default), its ignored

Details

Must set either sleep or req_per_min. If you set req_per_min we calculate a new bucket_size when $new() is called

Returns

A new AsyncQueue object


Method request()

Execute asynchronous requests

Usage

AsyncQueue$request()

Returns

nothing, responses stored inside object, though will print messages if you choose verbose output


Method responses()

List responses

Usage

AsyncQueue$responses()

Returns

a list of HttpResponse objects, empty list before requests made


Method parse()

parse content

Usage

AsyncQueue$parse(encoding = "UTF-8")

Arguments

encoding

(character) the encoding to use in parsing. default:"UTF-8"

Returns

character vector, empty character vector before requests made


Method status_code()

Get HTTP status codes for each response

Usage

AsyncQueue$status_code()

Returns

numeric vector, empty numeric vector before requests made


Method status()

List HTTP status objects

Usage

AsyncQueue$status()

Returns

a list of http_code objects, empty list before requests made


Method content()

Get raw content for each response

Usage

AsyncQueue$content()

Returns

raw list, empty list before requests made


Method times()

curl request times

Usage

AsyncQueue$times()

Returns

list of named numeric vectors, empty list before requests made


Method clone()

The objects of this class are cloneable with this method.

Usage

AsyncQueue$clone(deep = FALSE)

Arguments

deep

Whether to make a deep clone.
