Generator type: get

Get generators are a complex form of generator that require an intermediate Hoon understanding to fully process. The very basic idea is that a %get generator can access information from an HTTP request to a website. A %get generator is a cell of a mark of %get and a gate that produces a cask (a duple – two part – cell of a mark and some output). %get generators differ from %say generators, as with %ask generators, in that they incorporate types from /sur/sole.hoon and library files from /lib/generators.hoon A %get generator’s ultimate goal is to take some URL and parse the return data (the entirety of the http response).
