Perform request agains digest authenticated servers.

HTTP Digest Client

Hacked together snippet for talking to HTTP servers that employ digest authentication.

Only tested against one server and spec is not followed fully. It works for me and for what I am doing.

var digest = require('http-digest-client').createDigestClient('username', 'password');
  host: '',
  path: '/path.json',
  port: 80,
  method: 'GET',
  headers: { "User-Agent": "Simon Ljungberg" } // Set any headers you want
}, function (res) {
  res.on('data', function (data) {
  res.on('error', function (err) {
    console.log('oh noes');

The digest client will make one reques to the server, authentication response is calculated and then the request is made again. Hopefully you will then be authorized.

I haven't yet figured out a way to write data to the final req object. Mainly because I haven't really needed it. Feel free to suggest solutions! :)
