rest-client 1.4.0 available


Archiloque <code@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce that rest-client 1.3.0 has been released

rest-client is a simple HTTP and REST client for Ruby, inspired by the Sinatra’s microframework style of specifying actions: get, put, post,  delete.

Example :

RestClient.get 'http://example.com/resource'
RestClient.post 'http://example.com/resource', :param1 =>  'one', :nested => { :param2 => 'two' }
RestClient.post "http://example.com/resource", { 'x' =>  1 }.to_json, :content_type => :json, :accept => :json


Changes:
* Response is no more a String, and the mixin is replaced by an abstract_response, existing calls are redirected to response body with a warning.
* enable repeated parameters RestClient.post 'http://example.com/resource', :param1 => ['one', 'two', 'three'], => :param2 => 'foo' (patch provided by Rodrigo Panachi)
* fixed the redirect code concerning relative path and query string combination (patch provided by Kevin Read)
* redirection code moved to Response so redirection can be customized using the block syntax
* only get and head redirections are now followed by default, as stated in the specification
* added RestClient.add_before_execution_proc to hack the http request, like for oauth

The response change may be breaking in rare cases.
