Package description

What is https-browserify?

The https-browserify package is a browser-friendly implementation of the Node.js HTTPS module. It allows developers to make HTTPS requests in environments where the native Node.js HTTPS module is not available, such as in web browsers. This package is particularly useful for creating web applications that need to interact with secure APIs or perform any secure web requests without relying on server-side proxies.

What are https-browserify's main functionalities?

Making HTTPS GET requests

This code sample demonstrates how to make a simple HTTPS GET request to a specified URL and handle the response. It logs the status code and headers of the response, and then processes the data received.

const https = require('https-browserify');
https.get('https://example.com', function(res) {
  console.log('statusCode:', res.statusCode);
  console.log('headers:', res.headers);

  res.on('data', function(d) {
    process.stdout.write(d);
  });
}).on('error', function(e) {
  console.error(e);
});

Making HTTPS POST requests

This code sample shows how to make an HTTPS POST request with a JSON payload. It sets up the request options including the method, headers, and body data, then sends the request to the server.

const https = require('https-browserify');
const data = JSON.stringify({
  todo: 'Buy the milk'
});

const options = {
  hostname: 'example.com',
  port: 443,
  path: '/todos',
  method: 'POST',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Content-Length': data.length
  }
};

const req = https.request(options, (res) => {
  console.log(`statusCode: ${res.statusCode}`);

  res.on('data', (d) => {
    process.stdout.write(d);
  });
});

req.on('error', (error) => {
  console.error(error);
});

req.write(data);
req.end();
