response: The response object.


The response object captures all information from a request. It includes fields:

  • url the url the request was actually sent to (after redirects)

  • handle the handle associated with the url

  • status_code the http status code

  • header a named list of headers returned by the server

  • cookies a named list of cookies returned by the server

  • content the body of the response, as raw vector. See content() for various ways to access the content.

  • time request timing information

  • config configuration for the request



For non-http(s) responses, some parts including the status and header may not be interpretable the same way as http responses.
