Ender Support

Reqwest can be used as an Ender module. Add it to your existing build as such:

$ ender add reqwest

Use it as such:

$.ajax({ ... })

Serialize things:

$(form).serialize() // returns query string -> x=y&...
$(form).serialize({type:'array'}) // returns array name/value pairs -> [ { name: x, value: y}, ... ]
$(form).serialize({type:'map'}) // returns an object representation -> { x: y, ... }
$(form).serializeArray()
$.toQueryString({
    foo: 'bar'
  , baz: 'thunk'
}) // returns query string -> foo=bar&baz=thunk

Or, get a bit fancy:

$('#myform input[name=myradios]').serialize({type:'map'})['myradios'] // get the selected value
$('input[type=text],#specialthing').serialize() // turn any arbitrary set of form elements into a query string

Happy Ajaxing!
