    incoming-message-hash

    Generate a one-way hash from an http.IncomingMessage

    install

    $ npm install incoming-message-hash --save

    example

    This example demonstrates how the hashing function returns a different hash based on the IncomingMessage's method, path, query string, headers and body.

    var hash = require('incoming-message-hash');
    var http = require('http');
     
    http.createServer(function (req, res) {
      req.pipe(hash()).pipe(res);
    }).listen(4567, function () {
      console.log('Server is listening on port 4567');
    });
    $ curl http://localhost:4567; echo
    e91caf6d7b009b5af0fb2e18cff95598
    $ curl http://localhost:4567/foo; echo
    2f24d536fd0ca7c4eb72a8d64440066f
    $ curl http://localhost:4567/foo?a=b; echo
    0bb92c398df54668d9020b835c345cb8
    $ curl http://localhost:4567/foo?a=c; echo
    02bd995c9ebccfc0332619a03ce0a688
    $ curl -H "Host: www.flickr.com" http://localhost:4567; echo
    ce8f3e6257911a9499923d0deebe56b5
    $ curl -X POST http://localhost:4567; echo
    41ba64dca3f3070b361b302a17742973
    $ curl -X POST -d "yay" http://localhost:4567; echo

    usage

    var hash = require('incoming-message-hash');

    hash([algorithm='md5'[, encoding='hex']])

    Returns a new crypto.Hash stream using the specified algorithm and encoding (defaults to "md5" and "hex"). You can pipe your http.IncomingMessage in and get a hash back.

    hash.sync(req, body, [algorithm='md5'[, encoding='hex']])

    Synchronous version of hash() that accepts the http.IncomingMessage and its body and returns the hash. You must buffer up the request body yourself if you wish to use this method.
