Steampipe `net_http_request`

Link parkin’: Why build an HTTP client into a database? So you can ingest web data directly!

Steampipe tables can do all sorts of surprising things! Did you know, for example, that the Net plugin’s net_http_request encapsulates a full-blown HTTP client?

I don’t think it’s a “trend” but noting that in my feeds, exploiting an HTTP client mechanism inside of an SQL engine is popping up often.

Great piece by Jon Udell via his own blog.
