Steps to reproduce

run cli command 'feathers generate authentication' with default service name for users ('users')
add hook for users create action (before hashPassword)

Expected behavior

cli command should produce working users service

Actual behavior

code of users service produced incorrectly - when posting data (create), it is parsed incorrectly and results in an Object with the key equals to JSON data and value equals to '', e.g.:

Object {{"email" : "", "password" : "12345"}: ""}

as a workaround i had to use Object.getOwnPropertyNames and use JSON.parse which produces correct object which is then asigned to and retrieved by hook

I'm not sure I am following the issue and wasn't able to reproduce something that breaks. Can you share a repository that demonstrates the problem?

here is git:
re-tested, it was an issue with specifying header:
this one is working:
curl http://localhost:3030/users/ -H 'Content-Type: application/json' --data-binary '{"email":"", "password":"12345"}'
this one is not (see extra space between Content-Type and ':' symbol):
curl http://localhost:3030/users/ -H 'Content-Type : application/json' --data-binary '{"email":"", "password":"12345"}'
it is likely not a bug but lack of my attention, so feel free to close it

That's how HTTP headers are specified so I don't think this is a Feathers specific issue (Node's internal HTTP header parser will probably never pick it up). Good to know though, I never noticed that behaviour!
