      console.log(res.toString());
      return res.json();
    })
    .then(json => console.log(json))
    .catch(err => console.error(err.stack))
;

Plugins and Middleware

Plugin functions are simple functions that take a client instance and do something with it. Plugin functions are called when they are .use()d.

Middleware functions are simple functions that take a Request or Response object and a next() callback as parameters, and does something with them. e.g. add helper methods to the Request or Response objects, modify the headers or body sent or retreived from the server.

Example

Here's an example plugin that adds a .error() method to the Response for asserting whether an error occurred with the request.

function plugin(client) {
  client.after((res, next) => {
    res.error = () =>
      this.status >= 400 && this.status < 600
    ;
    next(null, res);
  });
}

prefix-url

Prefix each request URL with another URL.

content-type

Parse the Content-Type header.

parse-body

Concatenate and parse the response stream.

auth

Basic HTTP auth.

oauth1

OAuth v1 authentication.

follow-redirects

Automatically follow redirects.

decompress

Decompress response bodies compressed with gzip.

useragent

Add a User-Agent header to every request.

Changelog

v3.1.0

  • add: middleware can short-circuit the request to return a staged response
  • break: middleware can no longer be synchronous, they must call next() - don't think anyone else will be using sync (its a bit ambiguous) but the tests were

v3.0.0

Almost a total rewrite.

  • break: use promises instead of events and callbacks
  • break: use middleware instead of events for plugins
  • break: use simplified Request and Response objects

v2.0.0

  • moved prefixUrl, contentType and body plugins into their own repositories
  • changed the arguments passed to the before and after event handlers - handlers now receive a formal event object that allows propagation to be stopped and the request to be prevented
  • adding some tests
  • cleaning up documentation

To do

  • Moar tests
  • Plugins:
    • Cookie Jar
  • Support for XMLHttpRequest/fetch in the browser
