NAME

Twitter::API::Trait::RateLimiting - Automatically sleep as needed to handle rate limiting

VERSION

version 1.0005

SYNOPSIS

    use Twitter::API;

    my $client = Twitter::API->new_with_options(
        traits => [ qw/ApiMethods RateLimiting/ ],
        %other_options,
    );

    # Use $client as normal

DESCRIPTION

Twitter's API implements rate limiting in a 15-minute window, and will serve up an HTTP 429 error if the rate limit is exceeded for a window. Applying this trait will give Twitter::API the ability to automatically sleep as much as is needed and then retry a request instead of simply throwing an exception.

ATTRIBUTES

rate_limit_sleep_code

A coderef, called to implement sleeping. It takes a single parameter - the number of seconds to sleep. The default implementation is:

    sub { sleep shift }
