Client class Null safety

The interface for HTTP clients that take care of maintaining persistent connections across multiple requests to the same server.

If you only need to send a single request, it's usually easier to use head, get, post, put, patch, or delete instead.

When creating an HTTP client class with additional functionality, you must extend BaseClient rather than Client. In most cases, you can wrap another instance of Client and add functionality on top of that. This allows all classes implementing Client to be mutually composable.
