sendDelayedRequest : Time.Time -> Http.Request a -> (WebData a -> msg) -> Cmd msg
sendDelayedRequest delay request tagger =
Process.sleep delay
-- Docs: http://package.elm-lang.org/packages/elm-lang/core/5.1.1/Process#sleep
-- Signature: Process.sleep : Time -> Task x ()
-- Here: Process.sleep : Time -> Task x ()
--
-- Given Time, this will return a task that can never fail and will result
-- in a successful value of `()` after a delay when executed by the runtime.
|> Task.andThen (\_ -> Http.toTask request)
-- Docs: http://package.elm-lang.org/packages/elm-lang/core/5.1.1/Task#andThen
-- Signature: Task.andThen : (a -> Task x b) -> Task x a -> Task x b
-- Here: Task.andThen : (() -> Task Http.Error a) -> Task x () -> Task Http.Error a
--
-- Allows chaining task-producing functions. In this case, the value
-- with which the previous task succeeds - `()` - is discarded by the
-- hockeystick.
--
-- Docs: http://package.elm-lang.org/packages/elm-lang/http/1.0.0/Http#toTask
-- Signature: Http.toTask : Http.Request a -> Task Http.Error a
-- Here: Http.toTask : Http.Request a -> Task Http.Error a
--
-- Turns an HTTP request into a Task that may fail with an Http Error.
|> RemoteData.fromTask
-- Docs: http://package.elm-lang.org/packages/krisajenkins/remotedata/4.3.0/RemoteData#fromTask
-- Signature: RemoteData.fromTask : Task e a -> Task x (RemoteData e a)
-- Here: RemoteData.fromTask : Task Http.Error a -> Task x (RemoteData Http.Error a)
-- Note that type alias WebData a = RemoteData Http.Error a
--
-- Given a task with failure type `e` and successtype `a`, returns a Task
-- with failure type `x` and success-type `RemoteData e a`.
--
-- Note that `x` is a free type variable. This means two things:
-- 1. this task can never fail.
-- 2. you can give this to any function that expects a certain type for
-- the error, like a function that expects a `Task Never a`.
|> Task.perform tagger
-- Docs: http://package.elm-lang.org/packages/elm-lang/core/5.1.1/Task#perform
-- Signature: Task.perform : (a -> msg) -> Task Never a -> Cmd msg
-- Here: Task.perform (WebData a -> msg) -> Task Never (WebData a) -> Cmd msg
-- Note that the `x` from the previous section was unified with `Never`.
--
-- Given a tagger and a task that can never fail, return a Cmd that, when
-- interpreted by the runtime, will eventually result in your update being
-- called with the resulting message.
