    File Uploader

    This module allows you to easily test the file uploading capabilities of your API by allowing you to perform a multipart file upload programmatically.

    Usage

     
    var uploader = require('file-uploader')
     
    var file   // set to the path of the file you want to upload
    var cookie // set a cookie if you require authorisation
     
    var options = {
      host : 'localhost',
      port : 4000,
      path : '/upload',
      method : 'POST',
      encoding : 'utf8'
    }
     
    uploader.postFile(options, file, {Cookie: cookie}, function(err, res) {
      console.log(res.statusCode)
    })
     

    Alternative: Superagent/Supertest

    Recently I've been using the superagent and supertest modules to send/test file attachments. The interface is clean, and they provide other essential HTTP requesting and testing functionality. I recommend you try them out before doing anything else, ever.
