API

request

syntax: local res, err = http.request(host, port, options?)

Perform an http request.

Before actually resolving the host name and connecting to the remote backend, this method will always look up the connection pool for matched idle connections created by previous calls of this method. This allows the module to handle HTTP keep alives.

An optional Lua options table can be specified to declare various options:

  • method : Specifies the request method, defaults to GET.
  • path : Specifies the path, defaults to '/'.
  • query : Specifies query parameters. Accepts either a string or a Lua table.
  • headers : Specifies request headers. Accepts a Lua table.
  • body : Specifies request body for POST method. Only accepts a string.
  • timeout : Sets the timeout in milliseconds for network operations. Defaults to 5000.
  • version : Sets the HTTP version. Use 0 for HTTP/1.0 and 1 for HTTP/1.1. Defaults to 1.
  • maxsize : Sets the maximum size in bytes to fetch. A response body larger than this will cause the fucntion to return a exceeds maxsize error. Defaults to nil which means no limit.

Returns a res object containing three attributes:

  • res.status (number) : The resonse status, e.g. 200
  • res.headers (table) : A Lua table with response headers.
  • res.body (string) : The plain response body

Note All headers (request and response) are noramlized for capitalization - e.g., Accept-Encoding, ETag, Foo-Bar, Baz - in the normal HTTP "standard."
