DR.Networking

A small networking library to make get & post requests

Usage

Make a get request with rate limiting

using DR.Networking;

class Program
{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        //Assign a global rate limit time. When you make a request to the same URL twice the second time this rate limit will be applied.
        //Unless you manually specify a rate limit for that page/domain in List<Configuration.SiteSpecific>.
        TimeSpan globalRateLimit = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10);

        //Create a list of page/domain specific rate limits. Page specific rate limits will be prioritized followed by domain specific rate limits.
        //If you pass a url which isn't contained in either global rate limit will be used.
        List<Configuration.SiteSpecific> rateLimitings = new()
        {
            new Configuration.SiteSpecific() { Duration = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(5), Url = "https://example.com/" },
            new Configuration.SiteSpecific() { Duration = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10), Url = "https://example.org/" },
            new Configuration.SiteSpecific() { Duration = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(15), Url = "https://example.net/" },
            new Configuration.SiteSpecific() { Duration = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(20), Url = "https://example.edu/" },
            new Configuration.SiteSpecific() { Duration = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(25), Url = "https://example.nl/by-sidn/" },
        };

        //Pass the rate limit to the library (you will only need to set this once).
        _ = new Configuration(globalRateLimit, rateLimitings);

        //Below is just for example. Run these requests however you want.
        List<string> Urls = new()
        {
            "https://example.com/",
            "https://example.com/",
            "https://example.org/",
            "https://example.org/",
            "https://example.net/",
            "https://example.net/",
            "https://example.edu/",
            "https://example.edu/",
            "https://example.nl/by-sidn/",
            "https://example.nl/by-sidn/",
        };

        foreach (string url in Urls)
        {
            var request = Request.Get(url).Result;
            if (request.result)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(request.content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result);
            }
            else
            {
                //Handle errors/issues
                Console.WriteLine(request.errorCode);
            }
        }
    }
}

Make a get request without rate limiting

using DR.Networking;

class Program
{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        var request = Request.Get(url).Result;
        if (request.result)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(request.content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result);
        }
        else
        {
            //Handle errors/issues
            Console.WriteLine(request.errorCode);
        }
    }
}

Make a get request with headers

using DR.Networking;

class Program
{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        var content = new Dictionary<string, string>
        {
            { "permission", "user" },
            { "permission_description", "general-user-account" }
        };
	
        var request = Request.Get(url, content).Result;
        if (request.result)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(request.content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result);
        }
        else
        {
            //Handle errors/issues
            Console.WriteLine(request.errorCode);
        }
    }
}

Make a post request (using FormUrlEncodedContent)

using DR.Networking;

class Program
{
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        var content = new FormUrlEncodedContent(new[]
        {
            new KeyValuePair<string, string>("permission", "user"),
            new KeyValuePair<string, string>("permission_description", "general-user-account")
        });

        var request = Request.Post(url, content).Result;
        if (request.result)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(request.content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result);
        }
        else
        {
            //Handle errors/issues
            Console.WriteLine(request.errorCode);
        }
    }
}

Or make a post request using dynamic data

using DR.Networking;

class Program
{
    public partial class Permissions
    {
        public string permission { get; set; }
        public string permission_description { get; set; }
    }

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        Permissions content = new Permissions { permission = "user", permission_description = "general-user-account" };

        var request = Request.Post(url, content).Result;
        if (request.result)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(request.content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result);
        }
        else
        {
            //Handle errors/issues
            Console.WriteLine(request.errorCode);
        }
    }
}

Return values

  1. result: Boolean which indicates if the request passed or failed.
  2. errorCode: A string containing the error message in case the request fails.
  3. content: HttpContent containing the content returned by the request.
  4. headers: HttpResponseHeaders containing the headers returned by the request.
