NAME

Net::HTTP::Spore - SPORE client

Build Status

VERSION

version 0.09

SYNOPSIS

my $client = Net::HTTP::Spore->new_from_spec('twitter.json');

# from JSON specification string
my $client = Net::HTTP::Spore->new_from_string($json);

# for identica
my $client = Net::HTTP::Spore->new_from_spec('twitter.json', base_url => 'http://identi.ca/com/api');

$client->enable('Format::JSON');

my $timeline = $client->public_timeline(format => 'json');
my $tweets = $timeline->body;

foreach my $tweet (@$tweets) {
    print $tweet->{user}->{screen_name}. " says ".$tweet->{text}."\n";
}

my $friends_timeline = $client->friends_timeline(format => 'json');

DESCRIPTION

This module is an implementation of the SPORE specification.

To use this client, you need to use or to write a SPORE specification of an API. A description of the SPORE specification format is available at http://github.com/SPORE/specifications/blob/master/spore_description.pod

Some specifications for well-known services are available http://github.com/SPORE/api-description.

CLIENT CREATION

First you need to create a client. This can be done using two methods, new_from_spec and new_from_string. The client will read the specification file to create the appropriate methods to interact with the API.

MIDDLEWARES

It's possible to activate some middlewares to extend the usage of the client. If you're using an API that discuss in JSON, you can enable the middleware Net::HTTP::Spore::Middleware::JSON.

$client->enable('Format::JSON');

or only on some path

$client->enable_if(sub{$_->[0]->path =~ m!/path/to/json/stuff!}, 'Format::JSON');

For very simple middlewares, you can simply pass in an anonymous function

$client->enable( sub { my $request = shift; ... } );

METHODS

  • new_from_spec($specification_file, %args)

    Create and return a Net::HTTP::Spore::Core object, with methods generated from the specification file. The specification file can either be a file on disk or a remote URL.

  • new_from_string($specification_string, %args)

    Create and return a Net::HTTP::Spore::Core object, with methods generated from a JSON specification string.

TRACING

Net::HTTP::Spore provides a way to trace what's going on when doing a request.

Enabling Trace

You can enable tracing using the environment variable SPORE_TRACE. You can also enable tracing at construct time by adding trace => 1 when calling new_from_spec.

Trace Output

By default output will be directed to STDERR. You can specify another default output:

SPORE_TRACE=1=log.txt

or

->new_from_spec('spec.json', trace => '1=log.txt');
