A none-blocking Http-Client implementation

Skrape{it} provides different fetcher implementations. All of the Fetchers behave different and you should pick them depending on your needs.

The AsyncFetcher is a none-blocking http client. It will send an HTTP-request (with given request parameters, headers etc.) to a given url and returns a result that consists of the http response status as well as of the response headers and body in a none-blocking fashion by the use of coroutines. Thereby it can be convenient called from a suspend function.

It is fast, robust and result will look simular to what you would get when surfing a page in your browser with deactivated Javascript.

Thereby it is the best pick if you want to call websites in parallel or at least from a coroutine scope and if you just don't care about the excecution of a websites Javascript.

if you do not need skrape{it}'s full feature set you can use the AsynFetcher standalone by adding the following dependency to your project.
