Net::Twitter::Role::RetryOnError - Retry Twitter API calls on error
$nt = Net::Twitter->new(
traits => ['API::RESTv1_1', 'RetryOnError']
max_retries => 3,
Temporary errors are not uncommon when calling the Twitter API. When applied to Net::Twitter this role will provide automatic retries of API calls in a very configurable way.
It only retries when the response status code is >= 500. Other error codes indicate a permanent error. If the maximum number of retries is reached, without success, an exception is thrown, as usual.
This role adds the following options to new:
A floating point number specifying the initial delay, after an error, before retrying. Default: 0.25 (250 milliseconds).
A floating point number specifying the maximum delay between retries. Default: 4.0
On the second and subsequent retries, a new delay is calculated by multiplying the previous delay by retry_delay_multiplier. Default: 2.0
The maximum number of consecutive retries before giving up and throwing an exception. If set to 0, it the API call will be retried indefinitely. Default 5.
A code reference that will be called to handle the delay. It is passed a single argument: a floating point number specifying the number of seconds to delay. By default, "sleep" in Time::HiRes is called.
If you're using a non-blocking user agent, like Coro::LWP, you should use this option to provide a non-blocking delay.
