How to post json data over http as a client

Posted on
  • From espruino htttp reference:

    var options = {
        host: 'example.com', // host name
        port: 80,            // (optional) port, defaults to 80
        path: '/',           // path sent to server
        method: 'GET',       // HTTP command sent to server (must be uppercase 'GET', 'POST', etc)
        headers: { key : value, key : value } // (optional) HTTP headers
      };
    require("http").request(options, function(res) {
    

    But where do I attach some JSON data (body/payload) to the POST request ?

  • It's passed at the end of the request like this:

    var options = {
    ...
    }
    var data = JSON.stringify({"key":"value", ...});
    require("http").request(options, function(res)  {
       ...
    }).end(data);
