From the discussion in #108, this adds support for a format parameter, and sets reasonable default content types when neither a content type nor a format is provided.

For now, the format parameter is only used to decide on a Content-Type header. However, it could be used in the future to set accept headers, automatically manipulate payloads (e.g. format: :json might result in the payload being converted to a JSON string before sending), etc.

Formats provided are:

  • text (text/plain)
  • json (application/json)
  • xml (application/xml)
  • form_data (multipart/form-data)
  • form_encoded (application/x-www-form-urlencoded)

When a format is not provided, the default is form_encoded. However, if there is a hash-based payload or files to upload, it defaults to form_data instead.


Awesome. I'm going to have to bump the version and release a gem. I'd like to also give you commit access and welcome you to the team!
