HTTP Requests #

HTTP Requests Package is inspired by the Python Requests Module, which is used to make HTTP requests and get responses. You can use it in your Rest API.

Installation #

Add this to your package's pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
  http_requests: ^3.2.0

Usage #

Start by importing the library:

import 'package:http_requests/http_requests.dart';

Let's make a simple example of a GET Method:

HttpResponse response = await HttpRequests.get('https://www.google.in');
print(response.statusCode);

Let's make a simple example of a POST Method:

Map<String, String> data = {'key': 'value'};
HttpResponse response = await HttpRequests.post('https://www.google.in', data: data);
print(response.status);

Let's make a simple example of Exception Handling:

Map<String, String> data = {'key': 'value'};
try {
    HttpResponse response = await HttpRequests.post('https://suank.in', data: data);
    print(response.json);
} on HttpRequestException catch (e) {
    print(e.code);
}
print(response.status);

Available Methods #

Similar to Python's request module, the HttpResponse object has the following functionality:

  • response.statusCode: the response status code.
  • response.status: the response status code with a description e.g., 200 - success.
  • response.url: the URL in the request.
  • response.headers: the response headers as a Map<String, String>.
  • response.success: a boolean. true indicates that the request was successful.
  • response.hasError: a boolean. true indicates that the request encountered an error.
  • response.bytes: returns the body in the response as a list of bytes.
  • response.contentLength: returns the response content length.
  • response.contentType: returns the response content type (application/json, etc.).
  • response.isRedirect: returns true if the response is a redirection, otherwise false.
  • response.content: returns the body in the response as a string (encoded in UTF-8).
  • response.response: returns the body in the response as a string (without specifying UTF-8, takes the default).
  • response.json: decodes the body in the response and returns the result as a Map<dynamic, dynamic>.
  • response.throwForStatus(): will throw an exception if the response statusCode indicates an error.
  • response.persistentConnection: a boolean. true indicates that the persistent connection.
  • response.reasonPhrase: the response status description, e.g., OK.

HTTP REQUESTS Exception #

  • INVALID_URL: Occurs when you provide an invalid URL.
  • TIMEOUT: Occurs when the request times out (default timeout is 10 seconds).
  • UNREACHABLE: Occurs when the host is unreachable due to slow or no internet connection.
  • INVALID_JSON: Occurs when the body content is not JSON but you use the json method on HttpResponse.
