POST / GET request issues

Recommended Posts

Seminko

I'm trying to get data from http://poe.trade/ - disclaimer, although this site is about a game, my script will not in any way interact directly with the game in any way. The script is just to get data from the site.

To explain how it works - you submit a POST request and a custom URL is returned, then you do a GET request on that URL and you get the final URL you want.

 

First issue:

Now, I've tried doing so by using https://apitester.com/ and the first phase works. Here's how it looks like at APITester:

Request Headers
POST /search HTTP/1.1
Host: poe.trade
Accept: */*
User-Agent: Rigor API Tester
Content-Length: 43
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Request Body
online=x&name=kaom%27s%20heart&league=incursion

When I submit this, the response I get is this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
<title>Redirecting...</title>
<h1>Redirecting...</h1>
<p>You should be redirected automatically to target URL: <a href="http://poe.trade/search/ioritewoteteme">http://poe.trade/search/ioritewoteteme</a>.  If not click the link.

So I then do a GET request for 'http://poe.trade/search/ioritewoteteme', which results in this response:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
<title>Redirecting...</title>
<h1>Redirecting...</h1>
<p>You should be redirected automatically to target URL: <a href="http://poe.trade/search/inamotezuakito">http://poe.trade/search/inamotezuakito</a>.  If not click the link.

Great, this link (http://poe.trade/search/inamotezuakito) is exactly what we want.

However, when I try to do the same in autoit, the result is quite different:

Global Const $HTTP_STATUS_OK = 200

$test = HttpPost("http://poe.trade/search", "/online=x&name=kaom%27s%20heart&league=incursion")
ClipPut($test)
MsgBox(1, "", $test)

Func HttpPost($sURL, $sData = "")
    Local $oHTTP = ObjCreate("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1")

    $oHTTP.Open("POST", $sURL, False)
    If (@error) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)

    $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Host", "poe.trade")
    $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("User-Agent", "Rigor API Tester")
    $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Accept", "*/*")
    $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded")


    $oHTTP.Send($sData)
    If (@error) Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)

    If ($oHTTP.Status <> $HTTP_STATUS_OK) Then Return SetError(3, 0, 0)

    Return SetError(0, 0, $oHTTP.ResponseText)
EndFunc

The code above returns: ' 謟 '

Any ideas as to what I am doing incorrectly?

 

Second issue:

Once I get the final link using APITester and do a GET on that i get a bunch of hieroglyphs. A friend of mine advised that the data is GZiped, which is a pain in the butt to be honest. However, apparently curl can uncompres that.

How would I go about it?

 

Thanks

      Hi All
      i am currently trying to add a function to my project that can send SMS, i have gone with Twilio for the sms service that use a REST API.
      I have never worked with an API before, and could use some help.
      I can get my function working with using cURL.exe and copy past command from the website with the following code. And thats great unfortunately i am have issue with character like æøå when sending a SMS appears like a box or ?. this does not happen if i do it from the website so it looks like a Unicode issue in curl.exe.
      I have done some searching on the forum and understand that i should be able to implement this curl command with the WinHTTP UDF from @trancexx so i don't need a third part exe and it might fix my charater issue.
      Unfortunately i really don't understand how i am to change curl commands to the WinHTTP and i was hoping some good maybe give me an example i could learn from.
      Thanks in advanced
      i have removed the AuthToken number from the script.
      _SendSMS("00000000","SomeOne","SMS body info") Func _SendSMS($SendTo,$SendFrom,$Msgtxt) $AccountSID = "ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc" $AuthToken = "Auth Token number" $Data = '"https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/'&$AccountSID&'/Messages.json"'& _ '-X POST \ --data-urlencode "To=+45'&$SendTo&'" \ --data-urlencode "From='&$SendFrom&'" \ --data-urlencode "Body='&$Msgtxt&'" \ -u '&$AccountSID&':'&$AuthToken&'' ShellExecute(@ScriptDir&"\curl.exe","-k "&$Data) ;~ curl 'https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc/Messages.json' -X POST \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'To=+4500000000' \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'From=Reception' \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'Body=Test Body' \ ;~ -u ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc:[AuthToken] EndFunc

      Hello friends, i have a working curl command that show informations about my account on binance.com, but_it dont work with autoit code without curl.exe.
      I want to do it without curl, because the whole process much Slower_ with StdoutRead (I want get the response in variable.)
      My Curl command in Autoit:
      This 2 are works, but_ i would like to do it without curl.exe
      $apikey="XYZ" sCommand = @ScriptDir & '\curl.exe -k -H "X-MBX-APIKEY: ' & $apikey & '" -X GET "https://api.binance.com/api/v3/account?' & $request the same in .bat  file
      curl.exe -k -H "X-MBX-APIKEY: XYZ" -X GET "https://api.binance.com/api/v3/account?timestamp=1514917812000&signature=85bdee77e53cd521e1d5229fbfb459d53799c42b3fa4596d73f1520fad5f965a" (I use curl with -k option which allows curl to make insecure connections, because there is problem with the sites certificate, (cURL error 60))
       
      I tried many variations, this is the latest... I cant get the same response.
      curl $error message (I changed ): {"code":-2015,"msg":"Invalid API-key, IP, or permissions for action."}
      autoit version $error message (Response code:400): Mandatory parameter 'timestamp' was not sent, was empty/null, or malformed.
       
      $request = $query & '&signature=' & $signature $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1") $oHTTP.Open("GET", "https://api.binance.com/api/v3/account", False) $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("X-MBX-APIKEY", $apikey) $oHTTP.Send($request) $oReceived = $oHTTP.ResponseText $oStatusCode = $oHTTP.Status If $oStatusCode <> 200 then MsgBox(4096, "Response code", $oStatusCode) EndIf

      HttpHeaderWatcher v1.0.1.3
       

      Some time ago, some members asked how to see the Http Requests.
      There are quite a few external applications but not in AutoIt!
      HttpHeaderWatcher in association with WinPcap, very modestly solves this lack.
       
      Once done this http watcher, i asked me : why not Re-build a WinHttp Request in AutoIt from a selected Request in one Click ?
      So i have added a "Create au3" button who open the WinHttp Request of your choice in AutoIt format in SciTE Editor.
      Voila voila, hope it can help !
