Get data

This helper function allows the use of a get method to fetch data. You can specify a query string for filter.

get(
  '/myendpoint',
  {
    query: { foo: 'bar', a: 1 },
    headers: { 'content-type': 'application/json' },
    authentication: { username: 'taylor', password: 'somethingsecret' },
  },
  state => {
    return state;
  }
);

Post existing data

Send some data to an existing endpoint.

post('/endpoint', {
  body: state => {
    return {
      field_1: 'some_data',
      field_2: 'some_more_data',
      field_id: dataValue('Some.Json.Object.Id')(state),
    };
  },
  headers: {
    Authorization: 'AUTH_KEY',
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
  },
});

Update existing data with PUT or PATCH

put(
  '/myendpoint',
  {
    body: { firstname: 'taylor', lastname: 'downs' },
    headers: { 'content-type': 'application/json' },
    authentication: { username: 'user', password: 'pass' },
  },
  state => {
    return state;
  }
);
patch(
  '/myendpoint',
  {
    body: { firstname: 'taylor', lastname: 'downs' },
    headers: { 'content-type': 'application/json' },
    authentication: { username: 'user', password: 'pass' },
  },
  state => {
    return state;
  }
);

  '/myendpoint',
  {
    query: { id: 'someId' },

    authentication: { username: 'user', password: 'pass' },
  },
  state => {
    return state;
  }
);
