hook_before
hook_after

There are hooks around the request.

    use Web::Compare;
    
    my $wc = Web::Compare->new(
        $lefturl, $righturl, {
            hook_before => sub {
                my ($self, $req) = @_;
                $req->header('X-foo' => 'baz');
            },
            hook_after => sub {
                my ($self, $res, $req) = @_;
                (my $content = $res->content) =~ s!Hello!Hi!;
                return $content;
            },
        },
    );
on_error

When a request was failed, on_error callback is invoked if you set this option as code ref.

    use Web::Compare;
    use Data::Dumper;

    my $wc = Web::Compare->new(
        $lefturl, $righturl, {
            on_error => sub {
                my ($self, $res, $req) = @_;
                warn Dumper($req, $res);
            },
        },
    );
diff

By default, Web::Compare uses Diff::LibXDiff for reporting diff. If you want to use an other diff tool, you'll set diff param as code ref.

    use Web::Compare;
    use String::Diff qw//;
    
    my $wc = Web::Compare->new(
        $lefturl, $righturl, {
            diff => sub {
                my ($left, $right) = @_;

                String::Diff::diff_merge($left, $right);
            },
        },
    );
