    0.0.0 • Public • Published

    json-xhr

    Promise-based library for working with JSON HTTP APIs

    Installation

    Install with component(1):

    $ component install RangerMauve/json-xhr
    

    Install with bower:

    $ bower install json-xhr
    

    Then link to build/build.js in your HTML, if no module loader is present it'll make a global called json_xhr

    You can also build a UMD-compatible bundle for use in other applications with:

    $ component build -s json_xhr
    

    API

        var jshr = require("json-xhr");
        jshr.get("http://example.com/foobar.json").then(function(result){
            var foobar = result.response;
            // foobar is a JS object that was parsed from foobar.json
        }).catch(function(e){
            alert("Error:"+e.message);
            // e is an Error object with the added properties for the request/reponse data and status
        })

    json_xhr(verb,url,data)

    Sends a `verb request to the specified URL. If the verb is GET, it turns the data into a querystring which is appended to the URL. Otherwise the data is stringified and sent as the body of the request. The return value is a Promise (the then/promise implementation in this case) which resolves to an object that looks like:

        {
            status: "the status code of the response",
            response: "the JSON.parse'd response body or an empty object if there was no body",
            request: "the XMLHttpRequest instance used for the request"
        }

    If there was an error it rejects with it, if the error was the result of an Error-like status code (4xx or 5xx), then it will reject to an Error object with the following added properties:

        {
            status: "the status code of the response",
            response: "the JSON.parse'd response body or an empty object if there was no body",
            request: "the XMLHttpRequest instance used for the request"
        }

    json_xhr(verb, url)

    Same as above, but the data is set to an empty object

    json_xhr(url, data)

    Same as the first version, but it sets the verb to GET

    json_xhr[get, post, put, delete]

    Shorthand for different verbs, acts the same as json_xhr(url,data)
