    co-request

    Simple wrapper to the request library for co-like interface (node.js generator based code). You can use it with koa or co

    To install simply run:

    npm install co-request

    Require co first, also it will work on node v0.11.7 and newest only.

    You must run node with --harmony flag (--harmony-generators as well)

    node --harmony simple.js

    Simple example:

    "use strict";
     
    let co = require("co");
    let request = require("co-request");
     
    co(function* () {
      // You can also pass options object, see http://github.com/mikeal/request docs
        let result = yield request("http://google.com"); 
        let response = result;
        let body = result.body;
     
        console.log("Response: ", response);
        console.log("Body: ", body);
    }).catch(function (err) {
        console.err(err);
    });

    POST example:

    "use strict";
     
    co(function* () {
        let result = yield request({
            uri: "http://google.com",
            method: "POST"
        });
    })();

    To pipe request you should use small helper (thanks to greim):

    function pipeRequest(readable, requestThunk){
      return function(cb){
        readable.pipe(requestThunk(cb));
      }
    }
     
    //..and then:
     
      var value = yield pipeRequest(this.req, request({...}));

    All methods of request listed in Request docs
