Affjax

CI Release Pursuit Maintainer: garyb Maintainer: thomashoneyman

A library taking advantage of aff to enable pain-free asynchronous AJAX requests and response handling.

Installation

Install affjax with Spago:

spago install affjax

If you are using affjax in a Node.js setting you will also need to install an additional NPM dependency:

npm install xhr2

Quick start

You can construct requests with the request function:

module Main where

import Prelude

import Affjax as AX
import Affjax.ResponseFormat as ResponseFormat
import Data.Argonaut.Core (stringify, fromString)
import Data.Either (Either(..))
import Data.HTTP.Method (Method(..))
import Effect.Aff (launchAff)
import Effect.Class.Console (log)

main = void $ launchAff $ do
  result <- AX.request (AX.defaultRequest { url = "/api", method = Left GET, responseFormat = ResponseFormat.json })
  case result of
    Left err -> log $ "GET /api response failed to decode: " <> AX.printError err
    Right response -> log $ "GET /api response: " <> stringify response.body

(defaultRequest is a record value that has all the required fields pre-set for convenient overriding when making a request.)

There are also a number of helpers for common get, post, put, delete, and patch cases:

import Affjax.RequestBody as RequestBody
import Data.Maybe (Maybe(..))
import Effect.Aff (launchAff_)

main = launchAff_ do
  result1 <- AX.get ResponseFormat.json "/api"
  case result1 of
    Left err -> log $ "GET /api response failed to decode: " <> AX.printError err
    Right response -> log $ "GET /api response: " <> stringify response.body

  result2 <- AX.post ResponseFormat.json "/api" (Just (RequestBody.json (fromString "test")))
  case result2 of
    Left err -> log $ "POST /api response failed to decode: " <> AX.printError err
    Right response -> log $ "POST /api response: " <> stringify response.body

Documentation

affjax documentation is stored in a few places:

  1. Module documentation is published on Pursuit.
  2. Written documentation is kept in the docs directory.
  3. Usage examples can be found in the test suite.
