NAME

Twitter::API::Context - Encapsulated state for a request/response

VERSION

version 1.0005

SYNOPSIS

    my ( $r, $c ) = $client->verify_credentials;

    say sprintf '%d verify_credentials calls remaining unitl %s',
        $c->rate_limit_remaining,
        scalar localtime $c->rate_limit_reset;

    # output:
    74 verify_credentials_calls remaining until Sat Dec  3 22:05:41 2016

DESCRIPTION

The state for every API call is stored in a context object. It is automatically created when a request is initiated and is returned to the caller as the second value in list context. The context includes the HTTP::Request and HTTP::Response objects, a reference to the API return data, and accessor for rate limit information.

A reference to the context is also included in a Twitter::API::Error exception.

METHODS

http_request

Returns the HTTP::Request object for the API call.

http_response

Returns the HTTP::Response object for the API call.

result

Returns the result data for the API call.

rate_limit

Every API endpoint has a rate limit. This method returns the rate limit for the endpoint of the API call. See https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/basics/rate-limiting for details.

rate_limit_remaining

Returns the number of API calls remaining for the endpoint in the current rate limit window.

rate_limit_reset
