EM-HTTP-Client

EventMachine based HTTP Request interface. Supports streaming response processing, uses Ragel HTTP parser.

  • Simple interface for single & parallel requests via deferred callbacks

  • Automatic gzip & deflate decoding

  • Basic-Auth support

  • Custom timeouts

Simple client example

EventMachine.run {
  http = EventMachine::HttpRequest.new('http://127.0.0.1/').get :query => {'keyname' => 'value'}, :timeout => 10

  http.callback {
    p http.response_header.status
    p http.response_header
    p http.response

    EventMachine.stop
  }
}

Multi request example

EventMachine.run {
  multi = EventMachine::MultiRequest.new

  # add multiple requests to the multi-handler
  multi.add(EventMachine::HttpRequest.new('http://www.google.com/').get)
  multi.add(EventMachine::HttpRequest.new('http://www.yahoo.com/').get)

  multi.callback  {
    p multi.responses[:succeeded]
    p multi.responses[:failed]

    EventMachine.stop
  }
}

Basic-Auth example

EventMachine.run {
  http = EventMachine::HttpRequest.new('http://www.website.com/').get :head => {'authorization' => ['user', 'pass']}

  http.errback { failed }
  http.callback {
    p http.response_header

    EventMachine.stop
  }
}

POST example

EventMachine.run {
  http1 = EventMachine::HttpRequest.new('http://www.website.com/').post :body => {"key1" => 1, "key2" => [2,3]}
  http2 = EventMachine::HttpRequest.new('http://www.website.com/').post :body => "some data"

  # ...
}

Streaming body processing

EventMachine.run {
  body = ''
  on_body = lambda { |chunk| body += chunk }
  http = EventMachine::HttpRequest.new('http://www.website.com/').get :on_response => on_body

  # ...
}
