requests package

The requests package provides functions for transferring data using the HTTP protocol. Import the http/requests package:

import "http/requests"


option requests.defaultConfig = {
    // Timeout on the request. If the timeout is zero no timeout is applied
    timeout: 0s,
    // insecureSkipVerify If true, TLS verification will not be performed. This is insecure.
    insecureSkipVerify: false,


defaultConfig is the global default for all http requests using the requests package. Changing this config will affect all other packages using the requests package. To change the config for a single request, pass a new config directly into the corresponding function.
