Response
Whenever you call the response function of the skrape{it} DSL it will take the given request config and performs a HTTP request by the use of the given fetcher.
Example
1
skrape(AsyncFetcher) { // <-- could use any valid fetcher depending on your use-case
2
request {
3
// some request config
4
url = "https://some.url"
5
userAgent = "my fancy UA"
6
}
7
8
response { // πŸ‰ <-- response will make actual HTTP request and convert its response to a Result object
9
// the scope of 'this' inside the response lambda is Result!
10
// that means you can directly call any field or function of Result here.
11
12
// e.g. print the response body
13
println(responseBody)
14
15
// the last thing called inside the response lambda will be returned
16
// e.g. the status code
17
status { code }
18
}
19
}
