A collection of helpers that I usually need when doing Node/REST API tests.

Note that this is still very much a work-in-progress, and there are huge holes in the current feature-set.


Wrap request with a few convenience methods:

  • It supports both promises and regular callbacks;
  • auto-setting basic url
  • automatically translating certain types from the server (at least application/json)

Todo list

  • Fully support all http-methods
    • del
    • head
    • options
    • trace
    • connect
