HTTP Client

Overview

The HTTP Client Node has two Methods of use. These are HTTP GET and HTTP POST.

HTTP GET

The HTTP GET Node.
HTTP GET creates a request and returns the response within the HTTP protocol. This is very useful when dealing with APIs. A more detailed explanation involving APIs can be found in the See Also section.
