jQuery ajax-stye http requests in node

jQuery ajax is stupid simple. This project provides a lightweight wrapper for the nodejs http request object that enables jquery ajax style syntax when making serverside requests to other webpages in node.js

In addition to najax.get, , handles ssl and makes some reasonable assumptions based on inputs and everything can be overridden by passing an options object.

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install najax

var najax = $ = require('najax')
$.get('http://www.google.com', callback)
najax('http://www.google.com', { type: 'POST' }, callback)
najax({ url: 'http://www.google.com', type: 'POST', success: callback })
najax({ url: 'http://www.google.com', type: 'POST' })

$.get, $.post, $.put, $.delete...

Run unit tests

  • npm install && npm test
