Build Status

An enhancement to mikeal/request library to create reusuable clients that supports cookies per client

Usage

Create a new client and use the same API as mikeal/request

var request = require("request-with-cookies");
var client = request.createClient();
client("http://www.google.com", function (error, response, body) {
  if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
    console.log(body) // Prints the google web page.
  }
});

You can also create a client with baked in options

var request = require("request-with-cookies");
var options = {
  qs: {
    q: "foo"
  }
};

var client = request.createClient(options);
// now every request will be sent with "?q=foo" appended to the URL
client("http://www.google.com", function (error, response, body) {
  if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
    console.log(body) // Prints the google web page.
  }
});

Implementation details

createClient() is a one liner that uses request.defaults to create an instance of request with a new instance of cookie jar

module.exports.createClient = () -> request.defaults({jar: request.jar()})
