co-req

co-req

tiny wrapper around request wrapper for generators. makes streaming responses a cinch.

Installation

npm install co-req

Example

co(function *() {
 
  var req = request('http://google.com');
  var res = yield req;
 
  if (200 != res.statusCode) {
    throw new Error(res.statusCode);
  }
 
  var body = '';
  var buf;
 
  while (buf = yield req) {
    body += buf.toString();
  }
 
})()

API

req = yield request(opts)

req has the same signature as substack/hyperquest. request returns a thunk that you can yield.

The response res contains all the http header information.

The body is streamed and to get each chunk you yield on req until the stream is complete.
