httr

The aim of httr is to provide a wrapper for RCurl customised to the demands of modern web APIs.

Key features:

httr wouldn't be possible without the hard work of the authors of RCurl and curl. Thanks! httr is inspired by http libraries in other languages, such as Resty, Requests and httparty.
