POST data with request module on Node.JS


Question

This module is 'request https://github.com/mikeal/request

I think i'm following every step but i'm missing an argument..

var request = require('request');
request.post({
        url: 'http://localhost/test2.php',
         body: "mes=heydude"
         }, function(error, response, body){
            console.log(body);
    });

on the other end i have

echo $_POST['mes'];

And i know the php isn't wrong...

Accepted Answer

EDIT: You should check out Needle. It does this for you and supports multipart data, and a lot more.

I figured out I was missing a header

var request = require('request');
request.post({
  headers: {'content-type' : 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'},
  url:     'http://localhost/test2.php',
  body:    "mes=heydude"
}, function(error, response, body){
  console.log(body);
});

I had to post key value pairs without form and I could do it easily like below:

var request = require('request');

request({
  url: 'http://localhost/test2.php',
  method: 'POST',
  json: {mes: 'heydude'}
}, function(error, response, body){
  console.log(body);
});

If you're posting a json body, dont use the form parameter. Using form will make the arrays into field[0].attribute, field[1].attribute etc. Instead use body like so.

var jsonDataObj = {'mes': 'hey dude', 'yo': ['im here', 'and here']};
request.post({
    url: 'https://api.site.com',
    body: jsonDataObj,
    json: true
  }, function(error, response, body){
  console.log(body);
});

var request = require('request');
request.post('http://localhost/test2.php', 
    {form:{ mes: "heydude" }}, 
    function(error, response, body){
        console.log(body);
});

  1. Install request module, using npm install request

  2. In code:

    var request = require('request');
    var data = '{ "request" : "msg", "data:" {"key1":' + Var1 + ', "key2":' + Var2 + '}}';
    var json_obj = JSON.parse(data);
    request.post({
        headers: {'content-type': 'application/json'},
        url: 'http://localhost/PhpPage.php',
        form: json_obj
    }, function(error, response, body){
      console.log(body)
    });

I have to get the data from a POST method of the PHP code. What worked for me was:

const querystring = require('querystring');
const request = require('request');

const link = 'http://your-website-link.com/sample.php';
let params = { 'A': 'a', 'B': 'b' };

params = querystring.stringify(params); // changing into querystring eg 'A=a&B=b'

request.post({
  headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded' }, // important to interect with PHP
  url: link,
  body: params,
}, function(error, response, body){
  console.log(body);
});
