chaseadam commented Mar 27, 2019


Previous handling of basic authentication credentials created base64 buffer concatenated user/pass. Should be creating buffer of base64 encoded string.

url-parse used always includes .auth object which overrides header built using .username and .password. Switch to else if.

NOTE: Fix does not address the lack of testing around the URL.auth object

I was unable to test against the ethereum test network because I couldn't figure out how to load the module locally (I am brand new to node).
