    urlencode-stream

    1.1.0 • Public • Published

    You need to URL encode a stream you're sending to a web server somewhere. You want this:

    var fs = require('fs');
    var request = require('request');
    var URLEncodeStream = require('urlencode-stream');
    var handler = require('./response-handler');
     
     
    fs.createReadStream('./sample-data.txt')
      .pipe(new URLEncodeStream())
      .pipe(request('http://example.com/postme', handler));

    If you want to go fully application/x-www-form-urlencoded on the results, create the stream with the option spaceToPlus set to true:

    var urler = new URLEncodeStream({spaceToPlus : true});

    The default is to leave spaces alone.

    Depends on streams2, one way or another. If you're running 0.10.x, it'll use the built-in streams. If you're running Node 0.8.x, it'll use readable-stream. If you're running an earlier Node, you're outta luck, chum. Maybe it's time to upgrade?
