NAME ^

WWW::GoDaddy::REST - Work with services conforming to the GDAPI spec

SYNOPSIS ^

 use WWW::GoDaddy::REST;

 my $client = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new({
   url => 'https://example.com/v1',
   basic_username => 'theuser',
   basic_password => 'notsosecret'
 });

 # see docs for WWW::GoDaddy::REST::Resource for more info
 my $auto  = $client->query_by_id('autos',$vehicle_id_number);

 print $auto->f('make');        # get a field
 print $auto->f('model','S');   # set a field
 $saved_auto = $auto->save();

 my $resource = $auto->follow_link('link_name');
 my $resource = $auto->do_action('drive', { lat => ..., lon => ...});

 my $new = $client->create('autos', { 'make' => 'Tesla', 'model' => 'S' });

 $auto->delete();

 my @autos = $client->query('autos',{ 'make' => 'tesla' });

DESCRIPTION ^

This client makes it easy to code against a REST API that is created using the Go Daddy (r) API Specification (GDAPI) https://github.com/godaddy/gdapi.

You will typically only need three pieces of information: - base url of the api (this must include the version number) - username - password

SEARCHING AND FILTERS ^

There are two methods that deal with searching: query and query_by_id.

SEARCH BY ID

Example:

  $resource = $client->query_by_id('schema_name','id');

SEARCH WITH FILTER

Filters are hash references. The first level key is the field name that you are searching on. The value of the field is an array reference that has a list of hash references.

Full Syntax Example:

  @items = $client->query( 'the_schema_name', 
    {
        'your_field_name' => [
        {
            'modifier' => 'your modifier like "eq" or "ne"',
            'value'    => 'your search value'
        },
        {
            #...
        },
        ],
        'another_field' => ...
    }
  );

Now there are shortcuts as well.

Single Field Equality Example:

  @items = $client->query( 'the_schema_name', 
    { 'your_field_name' => 'your search value' }
  );

Assumed Equality Example:

  @items = $client->query( 'the_schema_name', 
    {
        'your_field_name' => [
        {
            # notice the missing 'modifier' key
            'value' => 'your search value',
        }
        ],
        'another_field' => 'equality search too'
    }
  );

ATTRIBUTES ^

Attributes can be provided in the new method and have corresponding methods to get/set the values.

url

Base URL for the web service. This must include the version portion of the URL as well.

Trailing slash can be present or left out.

Example:

  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new( {
           url => 'https://example.com/v1'
       } );
basic_username

The username or key you were assigned for the web service.

Example:

  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new( {
           url => '...',
           basic_username => 'me',
           basic_password => '...'
       } );

NOTE: not all web services authenticate using HTTP Basic Auth. In this case, you will need to provide your own user_agent with default headers to accomplish authentication on your own.

basic_password

The password or secret you were assigned for the web service.

Example:

  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new( {
           url => '...',
           basic_username => '...',
           basic_password => 'very_secret'
       } );

NOTE: not all web services authenticate using HTTP Basic Auth. In this case, you will need to provide your own user_agent with default headers to accomplish authentication on your own.

user_agent

The instance of LWP::UserAgent that is used for all HTTP(S) interraction.

This has a sane default if you do not provide an instance yourself.

You may override this if you wish in the constructor or later on at runtime.

See the default_user_agent in "CLASS METHODS".

Example:

  $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new();
  $ua->default_headers->push_header(
    'Authorization' => 'MyCustom ASDFDAFFASFASFSAFSDFAS=='
  );
  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new({
         url => '...',
         user_agent => $ua
  });
schemas_file

Optional path to a file containing the JSON for all of the schemas for this web service (from the schemas collection). If you would like to avoid a round trip to the server at runtime, this is the way to do it.

Example:

  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new({
         url => '...',
         schemas_file => '/my/app/schema.json'
  });

See the GDAPI Specification for more information about schemas and collections. https://github.com/godaddy/gdapi/blob/master/specification.md

raise_http_errors

Boolean value that indicates whether a die() will occur in the event of a non successful HTTP response (4xx 5xx etc).

It defaults to True. Set to a false value if you wish to check the HTTP response code in the resultant resource on your own.

METHODS ^

query

Search for a list of resources given a schema name and a filter.

In scalar context, this returns a WWW::GoDaddy::REST::Collection object.

In list context, this returns a list of WWW::GoDaddy::REST::Resource objects (or subclasses).

Example:

  @items      = $client->query('schema_name',{ 'field' => 'value' });
  $collection = $client->query('schema_name',{ 'field' => 'value' });

See "SEARCHING AND FILTERS" for more information.

query_by_id

Search for a single instance of a resource by its primary id.

This returns a WWW::GoDaddy::REST::Resource (or a subclass).

Example:

  $resource = $client->query_by_id('the_schema','the_id');
create

Given a schema and a resource (or hashref), a POST will be made against the collection url of the schema to create the resource.

This returns a WWW::GoDaddy::REST::Resource (or a subclass).

Example:

   $car = $client->create('autos', { 'make' => 'Tesla', 'model' => 'S' });
schema

Given a schema name, return a WWW::GoDaddy::REST::Schema object or undef if it is not found.

Example:

  $schema_resource = $client->schema('the_schema');
schemas_url

If no schema name is provided, return the schema collection url where you can retrieve the collection of all schemas.

If a schema name is provided, return the URL where you can retrieve the schema with the given name.

Example:

  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new({url => 'http://example.com/v1/'});
  $c->schemas_url();        # http://example.com/v1/schemas/
  $c->schemas_url('error'); # http://example.com/v1/schemas/error
http_request

Perform the HTTP request and return a hashref of the decoded JSON response.

If this is called in list context, it returns the decoded JSON response and the associated HTTP::Response object.

This takes the following parameters (similar but not the same as HTTP::Request): - HTTP method - URL relative to the web service base url - Optional hashref of data to send as JSON content

The url provided will be rooted to the base url, url.

Example:

  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new({
         url => 'http://example.com/v1/'
  });

  # GET http://example.com/v1/servers/Asdf
  $data_hashref = $c->http_request('GET','/servers/Asdf')

  ($hash,$http_response) = $c->http_request('GET','/servers/Asdf');
http_request_as_resource

Perform the HTTP request and return a WWW::GoDaddy::REST::Resource instance.

This takes the following parameters (similar but not the same as HTTP::Request): - HTTP method - URL relative to the web service base url - Optional hashref of data to send as JSON content

The url provided will be rooted to the base url, url.

The url provided will be rooted to the base url, url.

Example:

  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new({
         url => 'http://example.com/v1/'
  });

  # GET http://example.com/v1/servers/Asdf
  $resource = $c->http_request_as_resource('GET','/servers/Asdf')
http_request_schemas_json

Retrieve the JSON string for the schemas collection.

Example:

  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new({
         url => 'http://example.com/v1/'
  });

  $schemas_json = $c->http_request_schemas_json();
  # write this out to a file for later use
  # with the 'schemas_file' parameter for example
build_http_request

Given parameters for a HTTP::Request object, return an instance of this object with certain defaults filled in.

As of this writing the defaults filled in are:

 - HTTP basic auth headers if auth is provided

Unlike other methods such as http_request, the url is not rooted to the base url.

Example:

  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new({
         url => 'http://example.com/v1/'
  });

  $request = $c->build_http_request('GET','http://example.com/v1/test');

CLASS METHODS ^

default_user_agent

Generate a default LWP::UserAgent. See user_agent.

Example:

  $ua = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->default_user_agent();
  $ua->default_headers->push('X-Custom' => 'thing');
  $c = WWW::GoDaddy::REST->new({
         user_agent => $ua,
         url => '...'
  });
