This commit is related to #30 (comment) issue #30
I have used this extensively, but that was over a year ago and that project was finished under time pressure so I have not added any unit tests for httparty itself and this might be too simple of a work around.
set content-type headers for requests
If you could add some tests to verify we don't break it in the future and a bit of reasoning I would be happy to pull. Sorry for the slow response.
Closing. Please re-open if you add tests. Thanks!
