send_request(request, config_options = list())

Arguments

request

list; a named list with at least a url to be sent and the data item contained within (most easily generated from build_call())

config_options

list; a named list of config options to be passed to httr::GET

Value

A response() object with an added data_item attribute

Examples

send_request( build_call(data_item = "TEMP", from_date = "01 Jun 2019", to_date = "10 Jun 2019", api_key = "test") )
