express-parser

This is an expressjs middleware which is used in conjuction with body-parser & used to parse the nested json in urlencoded body params.

supports typescript too

Why?

The reason is many times while using application/x-www-form-urlencoded for body params, the body-parser middleware fails to parse the nested json (e.g. for postman requests). Yes, body-parser provides (urlencoded({ extended: true }) for this purpose only but it fails for postman requests containing nested json & maybe some others too.

This middleware is used specifically for parsing the nested json left by the body-parser middleware.

Usage

... // initalizing other things

const express = require('express')
const expressParser = require("@dawnimpulse/express-parser")
const { urlencoded } = require("body-parser")

const app = express()

... // other middleware

app.use(urlencoded({ extended: true }))
app.use(expressParser)

// your objects are now properly parsed, use them from req.body
