Pre-configure client

Sometimes you may want to reuse your HTTP Client configuration to avoid code duplication or to archive better maintainability of your code base. Skrape{it} supports shared client configurations by default -- you just need to configure the client properties you want to reuse using the skrape{it} DSL without calling the response function.
Calling the request function will create a Request object which can then be stored to a variable.
The DSL is design to behave like fluent API, which means it will always return the return value of the last thing that was called inside the skrape lambda function.
val myPreConfiguredClient = skrape(HttpFetcher) {
request {
timeout = 10_000
headers = mapOf("some-custom-header" to "some-value")
followRedirects = true
}
}
@Test
fun `can use preconfigured client straight away`() {
myPreConfiguredClient.response {
status { code toBe 200 }
headers.getValue("some-custom-header") toBe "some-value"
}
}
@Test
fun `can use preconfigured client but slightly modify`() {
myPreConfiguredClient.apply {
request {
followRedirects = false
}
}.response {
status { code toBe 301 }
headers.getValue("some-custom-header") toBe "some-value"
}
}
