Rust Hyper Multipart (RFC 7578)


This crate contains an implementation of the multipart/form-data media type described in RFC 7578 for hyper.

Currently, only the client-side is implemented.


hyper-multipart-rfc7578 = "0.2.0-alpha2"

Because the name of this library is really wordy, I recommend shortening it:

extern crate hyper_multipart_rfc7578 as hyper_multipart;

Using this requires a hyper client compatible with the multipart::Body data structure (see the documentation for more detailed examples):

use hyper::{Client, Request, rt::{self, Future}};
use hyper_multipart_rfc7578::client::{self, multipart};

let client = Client::new();
let mut req_builder = Request::get("http://localhost/upload");
let mut form = multipart::Form::default();

form.add_text("test", "Hello World");
let req = form.set_body(&mut req_builder).unwrap();

        .map(|_| println!("done..."))
        .map_err(|_| println!("an error occurred")),

Note on Server Implementation

I don't have any plans on implementing the server-side of this any time soon. I ended up implementing the client-side because I couldn't find any good libraries that were compatible with hyper >= 0.11.

Please feel free to submit a pull request, I would gladly review it!
