request-with-cookies

An enhancement to mikeal/request library to create reusuable clients that supports cookies per client

Create a new client and use the same API as mikeal/request

var request = require("request-with-cookies");
var client = request.createClient();
client("http://www.google.com", function (errorresponsebody) {
  if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
    console.log(body) // Prints the google web page. 
  }
});

You can also create a client with baked in options

var request = require("request-with-cookies");
var options = {
  qs: {
    q: "foo"
  }
};
 
var client = request.createClient(options);
// now every request will be sent with "?q=foo" appended to the URL 
client("http://www.google.com", function (errorresponsebody) {
  if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
    console.log(body) // Prints the google web page. 
  }
});

Custom cookies can be set by passing in the following options

var options = {
  url: "https://foobar.com",
  cookies: [
    {
      name: "foo",
      value: "v1"
    },
    {
      name: "bar",
      value: "v2"
    }
  ]
};

The code can be built using gulp as follows

$ gulp 

Run tests using

$ npm test
