readBytes function

Future<Uint8List> readBytes (dynamic url, { Map<String, String> headers })

Sends an HTTP GET request with the given headers to the given URL, which can be a Uri or a String, and returns a Future that completes to the body of the response as a list of bytes.

The Future will emit a ClientException if the response doesn't have a success status code.

This automatically initializes a new Client and closes that client once the request is complete. If you're planning on making multiple requests to the same server, you should use a single Client for all of those requests.

For more fine-grained control over the request and response, use Request instead.

Implementation

Future<Uint8List> readBytes(url, {Map<String, String> headers}) =>
    _withClient((client) => client.readBytes(url, headers: headers));
