NAME

Future::HTTP - provide the most appropriate HTTP client with a Future API

SYNOPSIS

    my $ua = Future::HTTP->new();
    my $res = $ua->http_get('http://www.nethype.de/')->then(sub {
        my( $body, $data ) = @_;
        # ... handle the response
        return $body
    })->get();

This module is a wrapper combining Future with the API provided by AnyEvent::HTTP. The backend used for the HTTP protocols depends on whether one of the event loops is loaded.

Supported event loops

Currently, the following backends are supported:

Support is planned for LWP::UserAgent and POE but has not materialized yet.
