paraman

Paraman is a Clojure library for converting Clojure maps into valid HTTP query params. It supports arrays and nested objects.

I saw the need for such a library because I found out both clj-http and http-kit clients do not fully support both arrays, nested objects or arrays consisting of objects, which some API require (For example, Stripe API).

Usage

Instead of passing your params map to either clj-http or http-kit :form-params request option, use the library to convert your params into a valid HTTP query string and pass it directly to the request :body of either your clj-http or http-kit request options. Instead of:

(require '[org.httpkit.client :as http])
(def my-post-data {:some [{:obj "key1"} {:obj "key2"}]})
@(http/post "http://some.url.com/resource" {:form-params my-post-data})
; =>  java.lang.ClassCastException: clojure.lang.PersistentArrayMap cannot be cast to clojure.lang.Named

Do:

(require '[org.httpkit.client :as http])
(require '[paraman.core :refer [convert]])
(def my-post-data {:some [{:obj "key1"} {:obj "key2"}]})
@(http/post "http://some.url.com/resource" {:body (convert my-post-data)})

And you're good to go. Your map will be converted to valid HTTP encoded form params.
