== About

Ever wondered what HTTP requests the Ruby gem you are using to connect to a third party API is making? Use HTTP Spy to see what is going on behind the scenes.

== Installation

sudo gem install martinbtt-net-http-spy

== Example Usage

require 'rubygems' require 'twitter' require 'http-spy'

Twitter::Search.new('httparty').each { |r| r }

Outputs...

-- : CONNECT: ["search.twitter.com", 80] -- : GET /search.json?q=httparty -- : BODY: Net::HTTPOK

See the examples folder for more.

== Further Options

Show the call trace to the originating line of code in the third party gem

Net::HTTP.http_logger_options = {:trace => true}

Output the body of the request

Net::HTTP.http_logger_options = {:body => true}

Show the full raw HTTP output

Net::HTTP.http_logger_options = {:verbose => true}

Change the logger. By default HTTP spy logs to STDOUT

Net::HTTP.http_logger = Logger.new('twitter.log')

== Bonus Points

Use it to grab sample data for FakeWeb = testing goodness.

== Notes

This is a pretty early release. I'm sure there is plenty that can be done to improve compatibility as several libraries call Net::HTTP in a slightly different way. Feel free to fork and send in pull requests/patches.
