Description

HTTMultiParty is a thin wrapper around HTTParty to provide multipart uploads.

Requirements

  • httparty
  • multipart-post
  • mimemagic

Quick Start and Example

To start just "include HTTMultiParty" instead of "include HTTParty" into your client class. When you pass a query with an instance of a File as a value for a PUT or POST request, the wrapper will use a bit of magic and multipart-post to execute a multipart upload:

require 'httmultiparty'
class SomeClient
  include HTTMultiParty
  base_uri 'http://localhost:3000'
end

response = SomeClient.post('/', :query => {
  :foo      => 'bar',
  :somefile => File.new('README.md')
})

Aside from that it provides all the usual HTTParty gimmicks.

MIME type support

If you want the library to detect the MIME types of the uploaded files, then you need to enable it by supplying the :detect_mime_type option as true for POST or PUT requests. Otherwise, they will be uploaded with the default MIME type of application/octet-stream. For example:

require 'httmultiparty'
class SomeClient
  include HTTMultiParty
  base_uri 'http://localhost:3000'
end

response = SomeClient.post('/', :query => {
  :foo      => 'bar',
  :somefile => File.new('README.md')
}, :detect_mime_type => true)
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
