co busboy

busboy multipart parser using co or koa.

Example

var parse = require('co-busboy')

app.use(function* (next) {
  var parts = parse(this)
  var part
  while (part = yield parts) {
    if (part.length) {
      // arrays are busboy fields
      console.log('key: ' + part[0])
      console.log('value: ' + part[1])
    } else {
      // otherwise, it's a stream
      part.pipe(fs.createWriteStream('some file.txt'))
    }
  }
  console.log('and we are done parsing the form!')
})

Note that parts will be delievered in the order they are defined in the form. Put your CSRF token first in the form and your larger files last.

If you want co-busboy to automatically handle the fields, set the autoFields: true option. Now all the parts will be streams and a field object and array will automatically be populated.

var parse = require('co-busboy')

app.use(function* (next) {
  var parts = parse(this)
  var part
  while (part = yield parts) {
    // it's a stream
    part.pipe(fs.createWriteStream('some file.txt'))
  }
  console.log('and we are done parsing the form!')
  // .field holds all the fields in key/value form
  console.log(parts.field._csrf)
  // .fields holds all the fields in [key, value] form
  console.log(parts.fields[0])
})

API

parts = parse(stream, [options])

var parse = require('co-busboy')
var parts = parse(stream {
  autoFields: true
})

options are passed to busboy. The only additional option is autoFields.

part = yield parts

Yield the next part. If autoFields: true, this will always be a file stream. Otherwise, it will be a field as an array.

  • Readable Stream

    • fieldname
    • filename
    • transferEncoding or encoding
    • mimeType or mime
  • Field[]

    1. fieldname
    2. value
    3. valueTruncated - Boolean
    4. fieldnameTruncated - Boolean

If falsey, then the parser is done.

parts.field{}

If autoFields: true, this object will be populated with key/value pairs.

parts.fields[]

If autoFields: true, this array will be populated with all fields.
