HTTP message parser in JavaScript.

Install

Docs

The function takes in a string or Buffer (recommended).

The result message body and multipart bodies will always return back as a Buffer in Node.js in order to retain it's original encoding, for example when it parses a response containing binary audio data it won't stringify the binary data. The library avoids stringifying the body by performing offset slices on the input buffer.

Use the buffer module if dealing with binary data in the browser.

Usage

Here's an example.

multipart_example.txt

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=frontier

This is a message with multiple parts in MIME format.
--frontier
Content-Type: text/plain

This is the body of the message.
--frontier
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

--frontier
const httpMessageParser = require('http-message-parser');
const fs = require('fs');

fs.readFile('multipart_example.txt', 'binary', (error, messageBuffer) => {
  if (error) {
    return console.error(error);
  }

  const parsedMessage = httpMessageParser(messageBuffer);

  console.log(parsedMessage);
  //
  {
    httpVersion: 1.1,
    statusCode: 200,
    statusMessage: 'OK',
    method: null,
    url: null,
    headers: {
      'MIME-Version': '1.0'
      'Content-Type': 'multipart/mixed; boundary=frontier'
    },
    body: <Buffer>, // "This is a message with multiple parts in MIME format."
    boundary: 'frontier',
    multipart: [
      {
        headers: {
          'Content-Type': 'text/plain'
        },
        body: <Buffer> // "This is the body of the message."
      },
      {
        headers: {
          'Content-Type': 'application/octet-stream'
          'Content-Transfer-Encoding': 'base64'
        },
        body: <Buffer> // "PGh0bWw+CiAgPGhlYWQ+CiAgPC9oZWFkPgogIDxib2R5Pgog..."
      }
