Installing

The easiest way is to grab it from NPM. If you're running in a Browser environment, you can use Browserify

$ npm install net.http-client

Using with CommonJS

If you're not using NPM, Download the latest release, and require the net.http-client.umd.js file:

var httpClient = require('net.http-client')

Using with AMD

Download the latest release, and require the net.http-client.umd.js file:

require(['net.http-client'], function(httpClient) {
  ( ... )
})

Using without modules

Download the latest release, and load the net.http-client.umd.js file. The properties are exposed in the global folktale.net.httpClient object:

<script src="/path/to/net.http-client.umd.js"></script>

Compiling from source

If you want to compile this library from the source, you'll need Git, Make, Node.js, and run the following commands:

$ git clone git://github.com/folktale/net.http-client.git
$ cd net.http-client
$ npm install
$ make bundle

This will generate the dist/net.http-client.umd.js file, which you can load in any JavaScript environment.

Documentation

You can read the documentation online or build it yourself:

$ git clone git://github.com/folktale/net.http-client.git
$ cd net.http-client
$ npm install
$ make documentation

Then open the file docs/literate/index.html in your browser.

Platform support

This library assumes an ES5 environment, but can be easily supported in ES3 platforms by the use of shims. Just include es5-shim :)

Currently only browser platforms (IE8+, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera) are supported, though there are plans to support Node.
