    Functions

    func CheckURL

    func CheckURL(s string) (string, error)

      CheckURL ensures that the URL has a valid scheme, and that, if it is an appspot server, that it uses HTTPS.

      If no protocol is specified, the protocol defaults to https://.

      func GetJSON

      func GetJSON(ctx context.Context, rFn retry.Factory, c *http.Client, url string, out interface{}) (int, error)

        GetJSON is a shorthand. It returns the HTTP status code and error if any.

        func IsHTTPError

        func IsHTTPError(err error) (status int, ok bool)

        func IsLocalHost

        func IsLocalHost(hostport string) bool

          IsLocalHost returns true if hostport is local.

          func NewRequest

          func NewRequest(ctx context.Context, c *http.Client, rFn retry.Factory, rgen RequestGen,
          	handler Handler, errorHandler ErrorHandler) func() (int, error)

            NewRequest returns a retriable request.

            The handler func is responsible for closing the response Body before returning. It should return retry.Error in case of retriable error, for example if a TCP connection is terminated while receiving the content.

            If rFn is nil, NewRequest will use a default exponential backoff strategy only for transient errors.

            If errorHandler is nil, the default error handler will drain and close the response body.

            func NewRequestJSON

            func NewRequestJSON(ctx context.Context, c *http.Client, rFn retry.Factory, url, method string, headers map[string]string, in, out interface{}) (func() (int, error), error)

              NewRequestJSON returns a retriable request calling a JSON endpoint.

              func PostJSON

              func PostJSON(ctx context.Context, rFn retry.Factory, c *http.Client, url string, headers map[string]string, in, out interface{}) (int, error)

                PostJSON is a shorthand. It returns the HTTP status code and error if any.

                Types

                type ErrorHandler

                type ErrorHandler func(resp *http.Response, err error) error

                  ErrorHandler is called once or multiple times for each HTTP request that is tried. It is called when any non-200 response code is received, or if some other network error occurs. resp may be nil if a network error occurred before the response was received. The ErrorHandler must close the provided resp, if any. Return the same error again to continue retry behaviour, or nil to pretend this error was a success.

                  type Handler

                  type Handler func(*http.Response) error

                    Handler is called once or multiple times for each HTTP request that is tried.

                    type RequestGen

                    type RequestGen func() (*http.Request, error)

                      RequestGen is a generator function to create a new request. It may be called multiple times if an operation needs to be retried. The HTTP server is responsible for closing the Request body, as per http.Request Body method documentation.
