Usage

Basic example

Use a middleware inside a server:

import { createServer } from 'http'
import { json } from 'milliparsec'

const server = createServer(async (req: ReqWithBody, res) => {
  await json()(req, res, (err) => void err && console.log(err))

  res.setHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json')

  res.end(JSON.stringify(req.body))
})

Web frameworks integration

tinyhttp

import { App } from '@tinyhttp/app'
import { urlencoded } from 'milliparsec'

new App()
  .use(urlencoded())
  .post('/', (req, res) => void res.send(req.body))
  .listen(3000, () => console.log(`Started on http://localhost:3000`))

API

raw(req, res, cb)

Minimal body parsing without any formatting.

text(req, res, cb)

Converts request body to string.

urlencoded(req, res, cb)

Parses request body using querystring.parse.

json(req, res, cb)

Parses request body using JSON.parse.

custom(fn)(req, res, cb)

Custom function for parsec.

// curl -d "this text must be uppercased" localhost
await custom(
  req,
  (d) => d.toUpperCase(),
  (err) => {}
)
res.end(req.body) // "THIS TEXT MUST BE UPPERCASED"

What is "parsec"?

The parsec is a unit of length used to measure large distances to astronomical objects outside the Solar System.
