This set of functions can be used to construct parsing functions adhering to the Request$parse() requirements.

parse_json(simplifyVector = TRUE, simplifyDataFrame = simplifyVector,
  simplifyMatrix = simplifyVector, flatten = FALSE)

parse_plain(sep = "\n")

parse_xml(encoding = "", options = "NOBLANKS", base_url = "")

parse_html(encoding = "", options = c("RECOVER", "NOERROR",
  "NOBLANKS"), base_url = "")

parse_multiform()

parse_queryform()

parse_table(...)

Arguments

simplifyVector

coerce JSON arrays containing only primitives into an atomic vector

simplifyDataFrame

coerce JSON arrays containing only records (JSON objects) into a data frame

simplifyMatrix

coerce JSON arrays containing vectors of equal mode and dimension into matrix or array

flatten

automatically flatten nested data frames into a single non-nested data frame

sep

The line separator. Plain text will be split into multiple strings based on this.

encoding

Specify a default encoding for the document. Unless otherwise specified XML documents are assumed to be in UTF-8 or UTF-16. If the document is not UTF-8/16, and lacks an explicit encoding directive, this allows you to supply a default.

options

Set parsing options for the libxml2 parser. Zero or more of

RECOVER

recover on errors

NOENT

substitute entities

DTDLOAD

load the external subset

DTDATTR

default DTD attributes

DTDVALID

validate with the DTD

NOERROR

suppress error reports

NOWARNING

suppress warning reports

PEDANTIC

pedantic error reporting

NOBLANKS

remove blank nodes

SAX1

use the SAX1 interface internally

XINCLUDE

Implement XInclude substitition

NONET

Forbid network access

NODICT

Do not reuse the context dictionary

NSCLEAN

remove redundant namespaces declarations

NOCDATA

merge CDATA as text nodes

NOXINCNODE

do not generate XINCLUDE START/END nodes

COMPACT

compact small text nodes; no modification of the tree allowed afterwards (will possibly crash if you try to modify the tree)

OLD10

parse using XML-1.0 before update 5

NOBASEFIX

do not fixup XINCLUDE xml:base uris

HUGE

relax any hardcoded limit from the parser

OLDSAX

parse using SAX2 interface before 2.7.0

IGNORE_ENC

ignore internal document encoding hint

BIG_LINES

Store big lines numbers in text PSVI field

base_url

When loading from a connection, raw vector or literal html/xml, this allows you to specify a base url for the document. Base urls are used to turn relative urls into absolute urls.

...

parameters passed on to read.table()

Value

A function accepting a raw vector and a named list of directives

Examples

fake_rook <- fiery::fake_request( 'http://example.com/test', content = '[1, 2, 3, 4]', headers = list( Content_Type = 'application/json' ) ) req <- Request$new(fake_rook) req$parse(json = parse_json())
#> [1] TRUE
req$body
#> [1] 1 2 3 4
