var r = request.post('http://abc.com') ;

var form  = r.form() ;
  form.append('api_key',bio.api_key) ;
  form.append('api_secret', bio.api_secret);
  form.append('files', fs.createReadStream(file))   ;

before I r.pipe(res) ; back to the client how can I capture the data returned to the post . are there other methods besides pipe. so can manipulate the JSON returned from the rest call ?

just pass a regular callback.

request.post(url, function (error, response, body) {})

@mikeal If you post a form using:


How do you then do something with the result of that post operation? This doesn't log anything:

    request.post(targetBaseURL+'/login.php').form({vb_login_username:mtfConfig.user, vb_login_password: mtfConfig.password},function(e,r,b){
        if(error) {
        $ = cheerio.load(r);

        var loggedIn = $("a:contains('welcome')");
        console.log('logged in');
