logo

Help in opening URLs (mostly HTTP) in a complex world — basic and digest authentication, redirections, cookies and more.

  • jscoverage: 98%

Install

$ npm install urllib

Usage

var urllib = require('urllib');

urllib.request('http://cnodejs.org/', { wd: 'nodejs' }, function (err, data, res) {
  console.log(res.statusCode);
  console.log(res.headers);
  console.log(data.toString());
});

Upload file with [formstream](https://github.com/fengmk2/formstream)

var urllib = require('urllib');
var formstream = require('formstream');
var should = require('should');

var form = formstream();
form.file('file', __filename);
form.field('hello', '你好urllib');
var args = {
  type: 'POST',
  headers: form.headers(),
  stream: form
};
var req = urllib.request(host + '/stream', args, function (err, data, res) {
  should.not.exist(err);
  data = data.toString();
  data.should.include('你好urllib\r\n----------------------------');
  data.should.include('Content-Disposition: form-data; name="file"; filename="urllib.test.js"');
  done();
});

// you can abort the request after 5 seconds
setTimout(function () {
  req.abort();
}, 5000);

TODO

  • Upload file like form upload.
  • Auto redirect handle.
