Body parsing

Example

body simply parses the request body and returns it in the callback. jsonBody and formBody call JSON.parse and querystring.parse respectively on the body.

anyBody will detect the content-type of the request and use the appropiate body method.

var Body = require("routil-body")
    , bodyParser = Body()
    , body = bodyParser.body
    , formBody = bodyParser.formBody
    , jsonBody = bodyParser.jsonBody
    , anyBody = bodyParser.anyBody
    , http = require("http")

http.createServer(function (req, res) {
    if (req.url === '/json') {
        jsonBody(req, res, function (body) {
            res.end(JSON.stringify(body))
        })
    } else if (req.url === '/form') {
        formbody(req, res, function (body) {
            res.end(JSON.stringify(body))
        })
    } else if (req.url === '/any') {
        anyBody(req, res, function (body) {
            res.end(JSON.stringify(body))
        })
    } else {
        body(req, function (body) {
            res.end(body.toString())
        })
    }
}).listen(8080)

Example with custom error handling

var jsonBody = require("routil-body")({
        errorPage: function (req, res, errorData) {
            // errorData is either a single value or an array of values
            // the values are either a number for the HTTP response code
            // or an object error object
        }
    }).jsonBody
    , http = require('http')

http.createServer(function (req, res) {
    jsonBody(req, function (body) { res.end(body) })
}).listen(8080)
