in reply to How to pass credentials through REST::Client

Hi Thanos,

I know your question was already answered, but I thought I would suggest you take a look at https://metacpan.org/pod/Mojo::UserAgent.

The entire Mojolicious project is excellent and worth taking a look.

It's very easy to create REST services with Mojolicious, but the UserAgent is also fantastic and a pleasure to work with.

For example, here are a couple of requests with different auth types. These examples are from the page I linked.

# Quick JSON API request with Basic authentication my $value = $ua->get('https://sri:t3st@example.com/test.json')->result +->json; # JSON POST (application/json) with TLS certificate authentication my $tx = $ua->cert('tls.crt')->key('tls.key') ->post('https://example.com' => json => {top => 'secret'});

Best,

Jim
