header-parser v1.0.0

Parse headers that are querystring values into JSON.

Header Parser Middleware

Some headers can be query-string encoded so this middleware makes 2 methods available to access parsed versions of those headers.


> npm install header-parser
var headerParser = require('header-parser');
var app = express();



Returns the specified HTTP request header field (case-insensitive match) that is encoded in query-string format as JSON.

// => "foo=bar&baz=My%20Val"

/* =>
    foo: 'bar',
    baz: 'My Val'

Aliased for req.headerParsed(field).
