requests.peek() function

requests.peek() is experimental and subject to change at any time.

requests.peek() converts an HTTP response into a table for easy inspection.

Deprecated

Experimental requests.peek is deprecated in favor of requests.peek.

The output table includes the following columns:

  • body with the response body as a string
  • statusCode with the returned status code as an integer
  • headers with a string representation of the headers
  • duration the duration of the request as a number of nanoseconds

To customize how the response data is structured in a table, use array.from() with a function like json.parse(). Parse the response body into a set of values and then use array.from() to construct a table from those values.

Function type signature
(
    response: {A with statusCode: E, headers: D, duration: C, body: B},
) => stream[{statusCode: E, headers: string, duration: int, body: string}]
For more information, see Function type signatures.
