cachedPOST: Cache the response of a POST

Description Usage Arguments Value


Some APIs have resources where a POST is used to send a command that returns content and doesn't modify state. In this case, it's more like a GET. This may occur where one might normally GET but the request URI would be too long for the server to accept. cachedPOST thus behaves more like GET, checking for a cached response before performing the request and setting cache if the request is successful. It does no cache dropping, unlike POST().





character URL of the request


additional arguments passed to the httr functions


The corresponding httr response object, potentially read from cache
