Node XMLHttpRequest-Cookie

Abstract

This is a Node.js extension module for wrapping the Node-XMLHttpRequest module to allow it to handle HTTP Cookies, similar to what a browser automatically does.

Installation

Use the Node Package Manager (NPM) to install this module locally (default) or globally (with option -g):

$ npm install [-g] xmlhttprequest-cookie

API

The API is fully compatible to the API provided by the underlying Node-XMLHttpRequest Extension Module, module (which in turn is compatible to the API defined by the W3C XMLHttpRequest API Specification. In addition, the exposed XMLHttpRequest object also has a debug flag for controlling debug messages and there is a CookieJar object exposed by the module which grants access to the cookie jar:

var fs = require("fs");
var xhrc = require("./xmlhttprequest-cookie");
var XMLHttpRequest = xhrc.XMLHttpRequest;
var CookieJar = xhrc.CookieJar;

if (fs.existsSync("./sample.db"))
    CookieJar.load(fs.readFileSync("./sample.db", { encoding: "utf8" }));

var get = function (url, complete) {
    var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
    xhr.debug = true;
    xhr.onreadystatechange = function() {
        if (xhr.readyState === 4) {
            console.log("body length: " + this.responseText.length);
            complete(xhr);
        }
    };
    xhr.open("GET", "https://github.com/rse/");
    xhr.send();
};

get("https://github.com/rse/", function (xhr) {
    console.log("body: " + xhr.responseText.substr(0, 100));
    get("https://github.com/rse/", function (xhr) {
        console.log("body: " + xhr.responseText.substr(0, 100));
        fs.writeFileSync("./sample.db", CookieJar.save(), { encoding: "utf8" });
    });
});
