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

$ curl http://localhost:4567/foo; 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.
