The curl command line tool is commonly used to demonstrate HTTP APIs and can easily be generated from browser developer tools. curl_translate() saves you the pain of manually translating these calls by implementing a partial, but frequently used, subset of curl options. Use curl_help() to see the supported options, and curl_translate() to translate a curl invocation copy and pasted from elsewhere.

Inspired by curlconverter written by Bob Rudis.

Usage

curl_translate(cmd)

curl_help()

Arguments

cmd

Call to curl. If omitted and the clipr package is installed, will be retrieved from the clipboard.

Value

A string containing the translated httr2 code. If the input was copied from the clipboard, the translation will be copied back to the clipboard.

Examples

curl_translate("curl http://example.com")
#> request("http://example.com") %>% 
#>   req_perform()
curl_translate("curl http://example.com -X DELETE")
#> request("http://example.com") %>% 
#>   req_method("DELETE") %>% 
#>   req_perform()
curl_translate("curl http://example.com --header A:1 --header B:2")
#> request("http://example.com") %>% 
#>   req_headers(
#>     A = "1",
#>     B = "2",
#>   ) %>% 
#>   req_perform()
curl_translate("curl http://example.com --verbose")
#> request("http://example.com") %>%
