ES7 async/await ready http client

requisition

A light, fluent node.js HTTP client for ES6. Heavily inspired by superagent as well as fetch. Designed with ES7 async/await in mind.

The API is quite minimal for now. Features will be added while people request or use them.

var req = require('requisition');
 
// GET a JSON body 
async function () {
  var res = await req('/users.json');
  var body = await res.json();
}
 
// POST an image file 
async function () {
  var res = await req.post('/images.json').sendFile('image.png');
  var body = await res.json();
}
var request = require('requisition');
